An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The sea-swept Hebrides islands and the west coast of Scotland are the ancestral home of the MacAree family. Their name comes from the name Macara, which is the Gaelic word for son of the young, manly one.

MacAree Early Origins



The surname MacAree was first found in Perthshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Pheairt) former county in the present day Council Area of Perth and Kinross, located in central Scotland, 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.

The Great Migration



Many of the ancestors of Dalriadan families who arrived in North America still live in communities along the east coast of Canada and the United States. In the American War of Independence many of the original settlers traveled north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries the ancestors of many Scots began recovering their collective national heritage through Clan societies, highland games, and other patriotic events.
