Glenn Early Origins



The surname Glenn was first found in Peebles-shire where they held a family seat from early times. The Glen family name is derived from the ancient word "glean" meaning a small valley. The name was first found in the lands of Glen in the parish of Traquair in Peeblesshire, Scotland. The Chief of the family, Colban, received his lands of Quilte in a legacy from the Queen, which was later confirmed by Robert the Bruce in the following year, 1329.
