An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The ancient Dalriadan clans of Scotland spawned the name McMickle. It is derived from the devotion of an ancestor to St. Michael. The Gaelic form of the surname is Mac Giolla Mhicheil, which means son of the servant of St. Michael.

McMickle Early Origins



The surname McMickle was first found in Angus (Gaelic: Aonghas), part of the Tayside region of northeastern Scotland, and present day Council Area of Angus, formerly known as Forfar or Forfarshire, 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.

In the Middle Ages, the translation between Gaelic and English was not a highly developed process. Spelling was not yet standardized, and so, an enormous number of spelling variations appear in records of early Scottish names. McMickle has appeared as MacMichael, MacGilliemichael and others.

The Great Migration



Many settled along the east coast of what would become the United States and Canada. As the American War of Independence broke out, those who remained loyal to the crown went north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. The ancestors of all of these hardy Dalriadan-Scottish settlers began to recover their collective history in the 20th century with the advent of the vibrant culture fostered by highland games and Clan societies in North Ameri ca. Highland games, clan societies, and other organizations generated much renewed interest in Scottish heritage in the 20th century. The McMickle were among the earliest of the Scottish settlers as immigration passenger lists have shown:
