MacClintic comes from the ancient Dalriadan clans of Scotland's west coast and Hebrides islands. The name comes from the Gaelic name Mac Gille Ghionndaig, which means son of the servant of St. Finndag or son of the fair young man.

MacClintic Early Origins



The surname MacClintic was first found in Argyllshire (Gaelic erra Ghaidheal), the region of western Scotland corresponding roughly with the ancient Kingdom of Dál Riata, in the Strathclyde region of Scotland, now part of the Council Area of Argyll and Bute, where they held a family seat from early times and their first records appeared on the early census rolls taken by the early Kings of Britain to determine the rate of taxation of their subjects.

Records from that era show an enormous number of spelling variations, even in names referring to the same person. Over the years MacClintic has appeared as MacClintock, MacLintock, MacLinden, MacAlinden and many more.

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. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name MacClintic or a variant listed above: Alexander, Daniel, James, John, Robert, Thomas and William MacClintock all arrived in Philadelphia between 1840 and 1860; Robert MacClintick settled in Philadelphia about 1840.

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Virtute et labore
Motto Translation: By valour and exertion.
