Gillmor Family History

This interesting surname is an Anglicized form of the Gaelic MacGille Mhoire (Scotland) or Mac Giolla 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 old English pre 7th Century personal names Getlingas or Gyolingas meaning "people of Getta" or "People of Gyola plus "mor" "marsh" or "moor". This surname dates back to the early 13th Century (see below). Further recordings include one Gillechad Gillamor (1304) (witnessed a grant by Huctred).
