The ancient Scottish kingdom of Dalriada is thought to be the home of the ancestors of the Egelischint family. Their name comes from someone having 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.

Egelischint Early Origins



The surname Egelischint 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.

Egelischint Spelling Variations



In the Middle Ages, the translation between Gaelic and English was not a highly developed process. Spelling was not yet standardized, and so, an enormous number of spelling variations appear in records of early Scottish names. Egelischint has appeared as Eaglesham, Eagleson, Egglesham, Eglischane and others.

The Great Migration



Dalriadan families proliferated in North Ameri ca. Their descendants still populate many communities in the eastern parts of both the United States and Canada. Some settled in Canada as United Empire Loyalists, in the wake of the American War of Independence. Families on both sides of the border have recovered much of their heritage in the 20th century through Clan societies and highland games. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Egelischint or a variant listed above: Mr. Eagleson landed in Boston Massachusetts in 1768.
