Tour Scotland Video John Gray Gravestone Newtonmore Highlands



Tour Scotland video of the John Gray gravestone in the cemetery on ancestry visit to Newtonmore in Badenoch and Strathspey, Highlands, Scotland. Recorded as Gray, Graye, Grey, Greye, de Grey, MacGray, McGray, McGrah, McGreay, McGrey, and possibly others, this ancient Anglo Scottish surname has at least two possible origins. The first was Old English and a nickname or personal name for a man with grey hair or beard, from the pre 7th century word " graeg ", meaning grey. Although the name means the same in Scotland and Ireland,name holders there took their name from the early Gaelic word " riabhach " which also means brindled or grey.
