An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright © 2000 - 2017


The ancestors of the first family to use the name Garlyn lived among the Pictish people of ancient Scotland. The name Garlyn comes from the Old English personal name Gærland. However, the surname Garlyn may be a local name derived from some place which is now unknown; gær and land are common elements in Old English nomenclature.

Garlyn Early Origins



The surname Garlyn was first found in Perthshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Pheairt) former county in the present day Council Area of Perth and Kinross, located in central Scotland. However, we must look south to find the first record of the name. Johannes de Garlandia or John of Garland ( fl. c. 1205-1255) was a philologist and university teacher who studied at Oxford. Another Johannes de Garlandia (Johannes Gallicus) (fl. c. 1270-1320) was a French music theorist of the late ars antiqua period of medieval music.

The Great Migration



In such difficult times, Ireland, Australia, and North America looked like better homes for many Scots. The trips were expensive and grueling, but also rewarding, as the colonies were havens for those unwelcome in the old country. That legacy did not die easily, though, and many were forced to fight for their freedom in the American War of Independence. The Scottish legacy has resurface in more recent times, though, through Clan societies, highland games, and other organizations. Immigration and passenger lists have shown many early immigrants bearing the old Scottish name of Garlyn:
