Early Origins of the MacKorvie family


The surname MacKorvie was first found in Kirkcudbright, where they held a family seat on the English/Scottish border. After the Norman Conquest of England many of Duke William's rebellious Barons moved north. The border became a convenient but turbulent no-man's land where the persecuted Many were given land by King Malcolm Canmore and later by King David of Scotland. Some were native Scots. In the 16th century they became known as the 'unruly clans'. The name was first recorded in Scotland in 1485 when John Makcorwis was a witness at Mayboill in Ayrshire.
