Eglesghan History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The story of the Eglesghan family is rich with Scottish history. It begins in the ancient kingdom of Dalriada where Eglesghan evolved as a name for some who 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.

Migration of the Eglesghan family to the New World and Oceana

Scottish settlers arrived in many of the communities that became the backbones of the United States and Canada. Many stayed, but some headed west for the endless open country of the prairies. In the American War of Independence, many Scots who remained loyal to England re-settled in Canada as United Empire Loyalists. Scots across North America were able to recover much of their lost heritage in the 20th century as Clan societies and highland games sprang up across North America. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Eglesghans to arrive on North American shores: Mr. Eagleson landed in Boston Massachusetts in 1768.
