The forbears of the name Eagelischan are thought to be of the ancient Scottish kingdom of Dalriada. The name indicates that the first bearer lived in the old Barony of Eaglesham in the county of Renfrew (now part of the Strathclyde region), Scotland, which originated in the 13th century.

Eagelischan Early Origins



The surname Eagelischan was first found in Renfrewshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Rinn Frił), a historic county of Scotland, today encompassing the Council Areas of Renfrew, East Renfrewshire, and Iverclyde, in the Strathclyde region of southwestern Scotland, where they held a family seat from very ancient times.

Eagelischan Spelling Variations



Medieval spelling was at best an intuitive process, and translation between Gaelic and English was no more effective. These factors caused an enormous number of spelling variations in Dalriadan names. In fact, it was not uncommon to see a father and son who spelled their name differently. Over the years, Eagelischan has been spelled Eaglesham, Eagleson, Egglesham, Eglischane and others.

The Great Migration



Many settled along the east coast of what would become the United States and Canada. As the American War of Independence broke out, those who remained loyal to the crown went north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. The ancestors of all of these hardy Dalriadan-Scottish settlers began to recover their collective history in the 20th century with the advent of the vibrant culture fostered by highland games and Clan societies in North Ameri ca. Highland games, clan societies, and other organizations generated much renewed interest in Scottish heritage in the 20th century. The Eagelischan were among the earliest of the Scottish settlers as immigration passenger lists have shown: Mr. Eagleson landed in Boston Massachusetts in 1768.
