McCarry History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: Irish, Scottish


On the Scottish west coast, the McCarry family was born among the ancient Dalriadan clans. Their name comes from the name Macara, which is the Gaelic word for son of the young, manly one.

Early Origins of the McCarry family


The surname McCarry was first found in Perthshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Pheairt) former county in the present day Council Area of Perth and Kinross, located in central Scotland, 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.

Migration of the McCarry family to the New World and Oceana


These settlers arrived in North America at a time when the east was burgeoning with prosperous colonies and the expanses of the west were just being opened up. The American War of Independence was also imminent. Some Scots stayed to fight for a new country, while others who remained loyal went north as United Empire Loyalists. The ancestors of all of them went on to rediscover their heritage in the 20th century through highland games and other patriotic Scottish events. The McCarry were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records:
