The Hebrides islands and Western coastal mountains of Scotland were once part of the ancient kingdom of Dalriada. The name MacCrone was born there, as a nickname for a person with blond hair. The Scottish name Crone was originally derived from the Gaelic word "cron", which means saffron, yellow-colored or dark, and refers to the complexion or hair coloring of the original bearer.

MacCrone Early Origins



The surname MacCrone 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 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. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name MacCrone or a variant listed above:

MacCrone Settlers in United States in the 20th Century

  • Edward MacCrone, aged 20, who settled in Duluth, Michigan, in 1912
  • William C. MacCrone, aged 26, who emigrated to Baltimore, Maryland, in 1914
  • David MacCrone, aged 25, who landed in America from Glasgow, in 1920
  • John MacCrone, aged 20, who landed in America, in 1921
