MacGill

The names Gill and McGill in Ireland are derived from the native Gaelic Mac an Ghaill Sept which is taken from the Gaelic word 'gall' meaning 'foreigner'. The variant Magill is sometimes used in the Province of Ulster and the name is also an abbreviation of various names that begin with 'Mac Giolla'.

Origen: Escocés. The distinguished Gill family, which is intricately woven into the intricate tapestry of Scottish history, finds its origin with the proud Norman people. Although the Normans came from France, they were actually of Viking origin. The Vikings landed in the Orkneys and northern Scotland under their king, Stirgud the Stout, around 870. Subsequently, led by their jarl, Thorfinn Rollo, they invaded France around 911. After Rollo laid siege to Paris, King Charles the Simple of France finally conceded defeat and granted northern France to Rollo, who became the first Duke of Normandy. First found in Yorkshire, where they had been granted lands by King William for their assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D. It was first recorded in the Domesday Book in the northern county of Yorkshire in 1086. Gamel filius Gille was granted more lands in Yorkshire near the other family estates in 1185. Henry Gille moved the family name to Cumberland in 1200 and the family gave its name to the village of Gilsland.
