The Scottish Nation

MONCUR, a surname derived from the French words Mon caeur, my heart. There was an old family, Moncur of that ilk, in Perthshire. In the charters of Robert I. and David II. this name of Moncur is mentioned, and in the reign of Robert III., Andreas Moncur de eodem is witness in a charter of Rait of Hallgreen. The ruins of the ancient castle of Moncur are still to be seen in the parish of Inchture, in the carse of Gowrie.
