Background: Claiming a regal origin, their motto anciently was, "My race is royal". Griogar, said to have been the third son of Alpin, king of Scotland, who commenced his reign in 833, is mentioned as their remote ancestor, but it is impossible to trace their descent from any such personage, or from his eldest brother, Kenneth Macalpine, from whom they also claim to be sprung.

Variations: Arrowsmith, Black, Bower, Bowers, Bowmaker, Brewer, Caird, Comrie, Dennison, Denson, Dochart, Docharty, Docherty, Dowie, Fletcher, Gair, Geuer, Gregor, Gregorson, Gregory, Greig, Grewar, Greyson, Grier, Grierson, Griesck, Grigor, Gruer, King, Kirkpatrick, Laikie, Leckie, Lecky, MacAdam, MacAinsh, MacAlaster, MacAldowie, MacAlester, MacAngus, MacAnish, Macara, Macaree, MacCainsh, MacCance, MacCansh, MacChoiter, MacConachie, MacCondach, MAcCondochie, MacCrouther, MacGregor, MacGrewar, MacGrigor, MacGrouther, MacGrowther, MacGruder, MacGruer, MacGruther, MacIldowie, MacIlduff, MacIlduy, MacInnes, MacInstalker, MacLeister, MacLiver, MacNay, MacNea, MacNee, MacNeice, MacNeish, MacNess, MacNey, MacNie, MacNiesh, MacNish, MacNocaird, MacNucator, MacPeter, MacPetrie, Malloch, McGregor, Neish, Neish, Nice, Nish, Nucator, Orr, Pattullo, Peat, Peter, Peterkin, Peters, Peterson, Petrie, Rob Roy, Skinner, Stalker, Stringer, Walker, White, Whyte.

I become confused when both this house and the house of Cambell claim my family name of "Orr."

My family has been traced back to the area of Lochbridge, Ayrshire in the 1642 time frame. I assume that the area is around Kilburnie as I don't believe they walked too far to become married.

I have a hard time finding out what house acually controlled this area during this time frame.

Given that my first name is Gregary I am inclined to use MacGregor but for no good reason.

My maternal line is from both the "Stuart" and Stewart" spellings. That would be easier but perhaps not so correct.

Any help as to records during this 1600 era would be appreciated. If not just for interest.

I know that everyone wants to claim a family, but that does not make this all accurate. Some end up being taken in just for the same of claiming a tartan. Who's the real authority?

Thanks for the help.

In the Variations you are missing the variation Doggart. We were Docharts, but due to a british pronunciation error we became Doggarts some time ago. Although not too popular of a name, we are still proud Macgregors
