Nary History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The Picts of ancient Scotland were the tribe of the ancestors of the Nary family. The name Nary is derived from the personal name John. The Gaelic form of their name was originally Mac-Iain-uidhir, which means son of dun John. However, the Nary family of Perth traditionally derive their name from M'an-oighre, which means son of the heir. Experts have also theorized that the surname Nary may be derived from Mac-an-fhuibir, which means son of the smith, or Mac-an-huidhir, which means son of the stranger.

Early Origins of the Nary family


The surname Nary was first found in Perth, 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.

Further to the south in England, the Menaire, Menear, Manhire and other variants claim descent from Walter Maenhir who was listed in Devon in 1293. The very rare variant Manhire traces back to Ellis Menheire who was listed in Devon in 1642. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
