Dreghorn History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Dreghorn family

The surname Dreghorn was first found in Ayrshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Inbhir Àir), formerly a county in the southwestern Strathclyde region of Scotland, that today makes up the Council Areas of South, East, and North Ayrshire, where they held a family seat on the English/Scottish border. After the Norman Conquest of England many of Duke William's rebellious Barons moved north. The border became a convenient but turbulent no-man's land where the persecuted Many were given land by King Malcolm Canmore and later by King David of Scotland. Some were native Scots. In the 16th century they became known as the 'unruly clans'. The name was first recorded in Scotland in the parish of Dreghorn near Colinton. This was the site of a former castle, but whether it belonged to Dreghorn 'of that ilk' cannot be ascertained at this time. The first of the name was William of Dregarn in Dreghorn.
