Monroe Genealogy & History

Monroe genealogy is Scottish, though most clan legend claims that the family came from Ireland in the twelfth century. It may derive from the Gaelic "Maolruadh", from "maol" for "bald" and "ruadh" for "red", so the name means a balding or tonsured man with red hair. It may also be a locational name referring to someone who lived near the River Roe in County Derry in Ireland. There are a number of other possible derivations and many alternate spellings, including Munro and Monro. Monroe family history includes the fifth President of the United States, James Monroe, as well as American actress and cultural icon Marilyn Monroe.
