Thank you all so much for this information. New messages have brightened the long lock down days here in Toronto. It's an excellent time for family research. Sue.

Sue, this from "Galloway Gossip" Trotter 1901. A mine of information incl' Galloway surnames. Apparently some MacGregors thereaboots!
 MacGrigor/MacGrighor, usual way, MaGrier,  familiarly, Grier, genteel wey, Grier and Grierson!

Trotter rails against the gentility & folk getting above themselves!  ;D

Bests,
Skoosh.
