CARRICK Family History

This is a very early Scottish locational surname. Recorded in the modern spellings of Carreck and Carrick, it originates from a district called Carrick in the county of Ayrshire. The place name derives from the ancient pre 10th century Gaelic word "carraig" meaning "a rock". The surname is one of the first ever recorded in Scotland, and certainly in its early days was of knightly noble status, with its nameholders playing a significant role in the medieval administration of the country. In these early times a number of alternative spellings of the surname were recorded. Amongst these were Sir Rolland de Karryk, who was a chief juror in the year 1260, and later his son Hector de Carrike, who in 1296 married the daughter of Samuel Mackan, chief of the clan MacKan (now MacCann or McCann)...
