Melrose History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The Melrose surname is a habitational name taken on from a place near Galashiels in the Scottish Borders.


Early Origins of the Melrose family


The surname Melrose was first found in Roxburghshire, where they held a family seat in their territories. The Pictish influence on Scottish history diminished after Kenneth Macalpine became King of all Scotland. But those east coast families still played an important role in government and were more accessible to Government than their western highland counterparts.
