Murty Family HistoryRecorded in several spelling forms including MacBrearty, McBrearty, McMurty, Murty and Murdy, this is an Irish surname. However spelt in the modern idiom it is believed to originate from the ancient pre 10th century Gaelic 'Mac Muircheartaigh', meaning the son of Murtagh, although little is known about Murtagh except that he was the first chief of the clan around the 14th century. Like many Irish surnames there is considerable confusion in regard to its origin, or even whether the MacBreaty and the MacMurty's are from the same kinship.
