An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright © 2000 - 2016


The old Scottish-Dalriadan name McClintitch is derived from the Gaelic name Mac Gille Ghionndaig, which means son of the servant of St. Finndag or son of the fair young man.

McClintitch Early Origins



The surname McClintitch 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 early times and their first records appeared on the early census rolls taken by the early Kings of Britain to determine the rate of taxation of their subjects.

Translation in medieval times was an undeveloped science and was often carried out without due care. For this reason, many early Scottish names appeared radically altered when written in English. The spelling variations of McClintitch include MacClintock, MacLintock, MacLinden, MacAlinden and many more.

The Great Migration



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 McClintitch were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: Alexander, Daniel, James, John, Robert, Thomas and William MacClintock all arrived in Philadelphia between 1840 and 1860; Robert MacClintick settled in Philadelphia about 1840.

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Virtute et labore
Motto Translation: By valour and exertion.
