An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The ancestral home of the MacKelloh family is in the Scottish-English border region where their ancestors lived among the clans of the Boernician tribe. They lived in Aberdeen (part of the modern Grampian region.)

MacKelloh Early Origins



The surname MacKelloh was first found in Aberdeenshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Obar Dheathain), a historic county, and present day Council Area of Aberdeen, located in the Grampian region of northeastern Scotland. More recently, leading seamen in the Commonwealth Navies addressed as "leader", and informally known as "kellicks" from the killick anchor which is the symbol of their rank.

The Great Migration



Many Scots crossed the Atlantic for North America hoping to escape poverty, as well as persecution. Much of their heritage was lost along the way and overtime. This century, however, Clan societies and highland games have allowed many ancestral Scots to recover their birthright. An examination of many early immigration records reveals that people bearing the name MacKelloh arrived in North America very early: James Kellock, who was a servant, who arrived in Virginia in 1661; Alice Kellogg, who came to Hartford, CT in 1637; Daniel Kellogg, who arrived in Connecticut in 1651.
