GILMOUR Family History

This interesting surname is of Anglo-Saxon or Scottish and Irish origin, and is an Anglicized form of the Gaelic "MacGille Mhoire" (Scotland), or "MacGiolla Mhuire" (Ireland), a patronymic from the personal names meaning "servant of (the Virgin) Mary". It can also be a locational name from Gillamoor in Northern Yorkshire, so called from the Olde English pre 7th Century personal names "Getlingas" or "Gyolingas", meaning "people of Getta", or "people of Gyola", and "mor", marsh or moor. This surname dates back to the early 13th Century (see below), and further early recordings include, Gillechad Gillamor (1304), who witnessed a grant by Huctred.
