McCray Genealogy & History

McCray is an Irish-Scottish name derived from the ancient Gaelic given name MacRaith, which means son of prosperity. McCray family history traces to an inscription (Maqu Rati) on a stone in County Cork, Ireland, and then was introduced into Scotland in the fifth century. In the 14th century, the name is found recorded in Inverness. Spelling variations found in McCray genealogy include MacCraith, MacCraw, MacCrea, MacRay, MacReagh, and McRae. In 1717, John McCray was the first in his family to arrive in Virginia. The McCray family motto, fortitudine, translates as fortitude; the three red stars and lion on the McCray coat of arms signify fierce courage and divinity.
