McGeorge Family HistoryRecorded in a range of spellings including MacJarrow, McGeorge, McJarrow, and McJerrow, this is a Scottish surname which is also recorded in Northern Ireland. The origins of the name are obscure, however it would seem that according to Black's "Surnames of Scotland", perhaps the leading authority on Scottish names that the origination is from the pre 10th century Gaelic personal name "Dewar". This is from the pre 10th century word "deoireach" meaning a pilgrim, which by the 14th century had been transposed into the word "jore", and hence the development of the later George, Jarrow and Jerrow.
