An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The ancient Scottish name Cayrne was first used by the Strathclyde-Briton people of the Scottish/English Borderlands. The original bearer of the name lived in Midlothian. The name Cayrne is also derived from the Gaelic word carn, which means pile of stones, and referred to the stone burial chambers we now call cairns.

Cayrne Early Origins



The surname Cayrne was first found in Midlothian, where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

The Great Migration



To escape the uncertainties and discrimination faced in Scotland, many decided to head out for North America. Once they arrived, many Scots fought with relish in the American War of Independence; some went north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. Many ancestors of these Scots have recovered their lost national heritage in the 20th century through Clan organizations and Scottish historical societies. Among the settlers to North America were: John Cairns settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1775; Michael Cairns followed in 1799; Andrew in 1830; John in 1840; Robert in 1864.
