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


The name MacCellar was first used by the ancient Strathclyde-Briton people of the Scottish/English Borderlands. The first MacCellar to use this name no doubt lived at Keilor, in Angus.

MacCellar Early Origins



The surname MacCellar 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.

The Great Migration



The number of Strathclyde Clan families sailing for North America increased steadily as the persecution continued. In the colonies, they could find not only freedom from the iron hand of the English government, but land to settle on. The American War of Independence allowed many of these settlers to prove their independence, while some chose to go to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. Scots played essential roles in the forging of both great nations. Among them: Adam Keller arrived in Philadelphia in 1840.
