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.
