McCoig History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the McCoig family

The surname McCoig was first found in the Hebrides (Gaelic: Na h-Eileanan Siar), in the present day Council Area of Western Isles, a region controlled by the Norwegians prior to the Treaty of Perth in 1266, where they held a family seat in this wild and romantic highland territory. Their territories were first located in Islay and they became associated as a sept of the MacDonald Clan. Allegiances were important in this terrain. The Hebridean Islands were a refuge from Government intrusion. Later they were also found on the isle of Arran.
