It was in the Scottish/English Borderlands that the Strathclyde-Briton people first used the ancient name Celar. It was a name for someone who lived at Keilor, in Angus.

Celar Early Origins



The surname Celar was first found in Angus (Gaelic: Aonghas), part of the Tayside region of northeastern Scotland, and present day Council Area of Angus, formerly known as Forfar or Forfarshire, 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.
