The ancestors of the first families to use the name McMordie lived in ancient Scotland in the kingdom of Dalriada. The name was then used as a nickname for a seagoing warrior. The Gaelic form of the name is Mac Mhurchaidh, which means son of the sea warrior.

McMordie Early Origins



The surname McMordie was first found in Argyllshire (Gaelic erra Ghaidheal), the region of western Scotland corresponding roughly with the ancient Kingdom of Dál Riata, in the Strathclyde region of Scotland, now part of the Council Area of Argyll and Bute, where they held a family seat from early times and their first records appeared on the early census rolls taken by the early Kings of Britain to determine the rate of taxation of their subjects.

The Great Migration



Many who arrived from Scotland settled along the east coast of North America in communities that would go on to become the backbones of the young nations of the United States and Canada. In the American War of Independence, many settlers who remained loyal to England went north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. Their descendants later began to recover the lost Scottish heritage through events such as the highland games that dot North America in the summer months. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the McMordie family emigrate to North America: Jonathon, and Robert McMurdey settled in Philadelphia in 1814; Benjamin, Jonathon, Robert McMurdy settled in Philadelphia in 1807; John McMurdy settled in New York in 1804..
