Merryless Early Origins



The surname Merryless was first found in West Lothian, 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. The family name became associated as a sept of the Clan Muir. Allegiances were important to Scottish middle age survival. The name, believed to be originally Mureleis, has been corrupted in many forms.
