A Boernician family in ancient Scotland were the ancestors of those who first used the name Celech. They lived in Aberdeen (part of the modern Grampian region.)

Celech Early Origins



The surname Celech was first found in Aberdeenshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Obar Dheathain), a historic county, and present day Council Area of Aberdeen, located in the Grampian region of northeastern Scotland. More recently, leading seamen in the Commonwealth Navies addressed as "leader", and informally known as "kellicks" from the killick anchor which is the symbol of their rank.
