McRae Genealogy & History

McRae family history records that the origin of this name is unclear. It was first found in Inverness-shire in Scotland, but there is also confusion with English names of similar spellings, including MacCrae, MacCraith, MacCrath, MacCraw, MacCray, MacCrea, MacCree, MacCreight, MacCrie, MacReagh, MacRae, MacRay, and MacRie. The Gaelic form is Mac Rath (son of grace, or son of prosperity); others claim that the root of the name is the pre-seventh-century Old English ra (roe deer). Hugh MacCrae settled in New York in 1774. Among members of the McRae genealogy are American Civil War General Dandridge McRae; American long jumper Mike McRae; and British singer-songwriter Tom McRae.
