MCGARRY Family History

Recorded in many spellings as shown below, this is a surname of Gaelic origins. However spelt it is one of the y developments of the original pre 10th century 'Mag Fhearadhaigh'. The name translates as 'the son of the descendant of the fearless one', a meaning which no doubt helped to account for its undoubted popularity. It is found in spellings which include MacCarry, McHarry, McGarrie, McGarry, MacAree, M'Garry, Megarry, and in County Monaghan - King!. This latter form is a strange anglicised corruption which resulted from the similarity of the sound 'Mac an Ri', meaning 'the son of king', although there is no logical connection...
