MCCORMICK Family History

This name, with variant spellings MacCormack, Cormick etc., is an Anglicized form of the Old Gaelic (Scottish and Irish) patronymic MacCormaig i.e., "son of Cormac", a personal name from the early Celtic "corb-mac" meaning "chariot lad" or "charioteer". The Scottish family is a branch of Buchanan - MacCormick of MacLaine and the surname first appears on record in Scotland towards the mid 12th Century, (see below). In Ireland, the name is widely distributed throughout the four provinces with a leading sept residing in the Fermanagh - Longford area.

Looking for information on Catherine (Crosby) McCormick, born in Ireland June 24, 1820, family records indicate in county Cork. She immigrated to Canada in 1869 (Cdn 1891 census, shows her as widowed), died in Montreal Quebec June 1902 AND James McCormick likely also from Cork and possibly born 1819. AND birth records of their daughter Mary McCormick, born in Ireland 23 May 1855 also likely in Cork.
