An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The sea-swept Hebrides islands and the west coast of Scotland are the ancestral home of the Michie family. Their name comes from the biblical personal name Michael. This name made its way into Scotland after the Norman Conquest in the softened French form Michel.

Michie Early Origins



The surname Michie 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, where they held a family seat in the lands of Corryhoul from about the year 1300. Traditionally the Clan is descended from a Michael MacDonald of the branch known as the MacDonalds of Keppoch.

The Great Migration



Many of the ancestors of Dalriadan families who arrived in North America still live in communities along the east coast of Canada and the United States. In the American War of Independence many of the original settlers traveled north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries the ancestors of many Scots began recovering their collective national heritage through Clan societies, highland games, and other patriotic events. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Michie or a variant listed above:
