Trecquair Early Origins



The surname Trecquair was first found in Peeblesshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd nam Płballan), former county in South-central Scotland, in the present day Scottish Borders Council Area, where they held a family seat on the lands of Traquair in the parish of Traquair from very ancient times. Although Magistrate Alan de Traquair was the first on record in 1250 it can be assumed that the lands were held by the family at least 100 years before. Following the pattern of settlers in the district, many grants were made by King David of Scotland to his Norman friends who moved north after the Barons War with King Stephen of England in 1137. Similarly, it was the Norman custom for the second son to adopt the surname of his estates, hence Traquair.
