Blair Genealogy & History

Blair, a locational Scottish name and popular given name, is derived from Gaelic word "blar", meaning battlefield. In Blair family history, variations include Blare, Blayr, Bleher, de Blare, McBlair. The name was first used in the Borders region of Ayrshire, where the Blair House at Dalry was held continuously by the family 1202-1980. The "gallant knight" Sir Bryce Blair who fought with Sir William Wallace was executed at Ayr in 1296. Blairs were also found near Angus, Scotland, and Ulster, Ireland. Today, 75% of all Blairs live in America, where the Blair genealogy began in Virginia in 1700. The Blair motto "amo probos" means "I love the virtuous".
