McClurkin Early Origins



The surname McClurkin was first found in on the island of Islay, in the Hebredean group where they held a family seat in this wild and romantic highland territory. Their territories were first located in Nerebie and they became associated as a sept of the MacLean Clan. Allegiances were important in this terrain. The Hebridean Islands were a refuge from Government intrusion. By the 17th century they were also found on the mainland.
