Multiple Origins for the Surname McKerlie



The McKerlie surname is an Anglicization, derived from the Irish Gaelic "Mac Toirdhealbhaigh."

McKerlie Early Origins



The surname McKerlie was first found in the Connacht counties of Galway and Roscommon (Irish: Ros Comáin) located in central Ireland in the province of Connacht, where the places names Ballymacurley and Curley's Island can be found. There is also legend in Ireland, that the name descends from Maolduin, the second son of the 164th Monarch of Ireland, who founded the clanns of Muldoon. Maolduin's great, great grandson was Clercen, whose name means "curly one." Clercen founded the Clan O'Cleircen, which anglicized is Curley or Curling.
