Old Travel Blog Photograph George Wilson Orr Glasgow Scotland

Old travel Blog photograph of George Wilson Orr from Glasgow, Scotland. The surname Orr is common throughout the English speaking world, but especially in Scotland, Ulster, the United States, Canada, and northern England. The name is considered to have numerous origins: such as being derived from an Old Norse byname; a Gaelic nickname; and an Old English topographical name, or placename. In Scotland, the name is first known to have been recorded in Renfrewshire. The Irish surname originates from an Anglicisation of Gaelic Mac Iomhaire which was an old name from Renfrewshire, and a sept of the Clan Campbell. Blog post of interest to folks with ancestry, genealogy or Scottish Family Roots in Scotland who may wish to travel and visit one day.
