Kelher History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The chronicles of the Kelher family show that the name was first used in the Scottish/English Borderlands by the Strathclyde- Britons. It was a name for a person who lived at Keilor, in Angus.

The surname Kelher was first found in Angus (Gaelic: Aonghas), part of the Tayside region of northeastern Scotland, and present day Council Area of Angus, formerly known as Forfar or Forfarshire, where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Migration of the Kelher family to the New World and Oceana


The persecution faced in their homeland left many Scots with little to do but sail for the colonies of North America. There they found land, freedom, opportunity, and nations in the making. They fought for their freedom in the American War of Independence, or traveled north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. In both cases, they made enormous contributions to the formation of those great nations. Among them: Adam Keller arrived in Philadelphia in 1840.
