It was in the Scottish/English Borderlands that the Strathclyde-Briton people first used the ancient name Allmack. It was a name for someone who lived in Yorkshire.

Early Origins of the Allmack family


The surname Allmack was first found in Dumfriesshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Dhn Phris), a Southern area, bordering on England that today forms part of the Dumfries and Galloway Council Area, where this curious name is descended from Robert M'Kawele, Lord of Karsneloughe, who was living in 1370 in Guffok land in Nithsdale. Traditionally within the family name the first Allmack or Allmark was a MacAll who on migrating south to Yorkshire found it more fashionable to drop the Mac from his name to become accepted in the English society. Progressively the name became Allmack, Allmark, Allmoke, Hawmoke. William Allmack, one of the founders of Hong Kong was honored by Almack Place in that city.
