MCALPINE Family History

This famous Scottish clan surname is also popular in Northern Ireland. It derives from a personal name "Ailpean" from the Gaelic elements "alp" meaning hill and "ean or ain", small or little, the small hill. Recorded in the main spellings of MacAlpine, MacAlpin and the shortened version McAlpine, this is one of the most prolific and earliest recorded of traditional Gaelic surnames. These early recordings include Monauche Macalpin, a charter witness in 1285, and in the spelling of Monach mac Alpy, this landowner rendered homage to the government of Scotland in the year 1296. In 1395 Malcolm Macalpyne witnessed a charter by Duncan, earl of Levenax, whilst in 1405, Mordac Makcalpy was granted permission by the king of England (Henry 1V) to attend the university of Oxford...
