Mccully Surname History



The Strathclyde clans of the Scottish/English Borderlands were the first people to use the name Mccully. It is derived from the Gaelic personal name Cullach, meaning boar.


Early Origins of the Mccully family


The surname Mccully was first found in Wigtownshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Bhaile na h-Uige), formerly a county in southwestern Scotland, now part of the Council Area of Dumfries and Galloway where one of the first on record was Andrew MacCulloch who served King William the Lion of Scotland and received the lands of Myretoun (now Monreith near Whitehorn in Wigtown).
