The McKelloch family chronicle reaches back into history to the Boernician tribe of ancient Scotland. The McKelloch family lived in Aberdeen (part of the modern Grampian region.)

McKelloch Early Origins



The surname McKelloch was first found in Aberdeenshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Obar Dheathain), a historic county, and present day Council Area of Aberdeen, located in the Grampian region of northeastern Scotland. More recently, leading seamen in the Commonwealth Navies addressed as "leader", and informally known as "kellicks" from the killick anchor which is the symbol of their rank.
