MCMINN Family History

This unusual surname is of Scottish (Norman) origin, and is a patronymic, "son of Meinn", from the Gaelic "Mac", son of, with "Meinn", which, though apparently a male given name, is, in fact a Gaelicized form of "Menzies", itself a habitation name from Mesnieres in Seine-Maritime, France. Recorded in the early 13th Century as "Maneria", the place was so called from the Latin "manere", to remain, abide, reside. One Arketill de Mannvers witnessed a charter by William de Veteri Ponte to the Abbey of Holyrood before 1214, and a Robert de Meyners was created Great Chamberlain of Scotland circa 1217.
