Early References to McMorrans in Kirkcudbright

John M'Moryn appears as a witness in Kirkcudbright in 1466. Alexander McMoren in Galloway had a respite for "treasonable intercommonyng with Inglismen" in 1529.1

M’Morrane of Kirkennan, being in debt 400 merks to George Gordon in Culwha, assigned to him the lands of Mylneton of Buittle on the 20th May 1585. He married Margaret, daughter of John Gordon of Lag, parish of Girthon2.  Probate records show Edward Malmorane was retoured heir of Margaret Gordoun his mother in lands of Blakat in Kirkcudbright in 1576.  On the 25th June 1586, Edward (Maxwell), commendator of Dundrennan, conveyed to Robert M’Morrane of Kirkennan, the teind schaws of the eight-merk land of Torr and Len Schannel, with pertinents in Rerwick. The witness to this was James Hutton, Prior, &c. Robert M’Morrane appears to have left two daughters as heirs-portioners. Their names were Nicolas and Margaret. On the 26th February 1592, they were served as heirs to their father.3 The farms of Blackbelly, Chapeltoun or Chapelcroft, &c., are believed to have formed a portion of the Buittle estate and a notice dated 12th March 1611, shows Nicola and Rosina, daughters and heirs of Robert M’Morane, had retour of Blackbelly, &c. On the 31st October 1615, Robert, son of Robert Maxwell of Spottes, was served heir to Chapelcroft or Chapeltoun, and Blackbellie, but in what way he became heir does not appear.4

The first mention of the name in the parish registers is in Minnigaff where John McMorran married Janet Henderson in 1707 (see family tree below). In Girthon, Margaret McMorrin married James Paulin in 1729 and Helen McMorrin married James Tod in 1732. Robert McMorine and his wife Jannet McClellan had a daughter Margaret baptised at Buittle in 1738. Another Helen McMorran married John McCutcheon at Minnigaff in 1749. In Twynholm Samuel McMoran had a daughter Mary baptised in 1766 and William McMorran married Janet Rain there in 1772.

John McMorran in Thorn, Parish of Rerwick and Robert McMorran in Barlae, Parish of Rerwick are listed in a Subscribers' Index from 1798.

Unfortunately the church records are too incomplete to allow any certain kindred connections to be drawn between these early inhabitants of Kirkcudbright although it is evident the McMorran surname has over a 500 year history in the county and that is probably due to a few progenitors. Being a neighbouring county to Lanarkshire and Dumfrieshire there is very likely to be strong connections between McMorran families in those counties.
