The current generations of the McBroday family have inherited a surname that was first used hundreds of years ago by descendants of the ancient Scottish tribe called the Picts. The McBroday family lived in the lands of Brodie, in the barony of Moray where the family at one time held territories. King Alexander III had granted their lands. Checking further we found the name was derived from the Gaelic word broth which means ditch.

McBroday Early Origins



The surname McBroday was first found in Moray, 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 cruelties suffered under the new government forced many to leave their ancient homeland for the freedom of the North American colonies.

These hardy settlers gave their strength and perseverance to the young nations that would become the United States and Canada. Immigration and passenger lists have shown many early immigrants bearing the name McBroday: Andrew Brodie who arrived in Philadelphia in 1811; Robert Brodie with wife and six children arrived in New York in 1775; Edward Brodie arrived in Philadelphia in 1813.
