Garrioch History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Garrioch family

The surname Garrioch was first found in Aberdeenshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Obar Dheathain), a historic county, and present day Council Area of Aberdeen, located in the Grampian region of northeastern Scotland, where they held a family seat in their territories. The Pictish influence on Scottish history diminished after Kenneth Macalpine became King of all Scotland. But those east coast families still played an important role in government and were more accessible to Government than their western highland counterparts. The family name became associated as a sept of the Clan Gordon. Allegiances were important to Scottish middle age survival. Later in 1264 Andrew Garuiach was Sheriff of Aberdeen. Adam Garioch rendered homage to King Edward 1st in his brief conquest of Scotland in 1296 as well as Andrew and Sir John.
