MARR Family History

Although this name is accepted as being Scottish, the origin is believed to be Yorkshire where in the original dialect 'Mar' described 'Marshy or Reedy Ground'. Be that as it may the Marr name has been prominent in Scottish history since the first 13th century recordings John de Mar being Baillie of Linlithgow in 1296, David de Marre (as spelt) being the Kings Messenger in 1327, whilst John Marre (died 1407) was the head of the Carmelite Convent in Doncaster, perhaps re-newing the Yorkshire connection.The Coat of Arms most associated with the family if that of the Earl of Mar, which has the blazon of on a silver shield a cross between six red cross crosslets fitchee.
