The Scottish Nation

MACRORY, a surname derived from the name Roderick, called Ruari in the Highlands. The clan Rory were so styled from Roderick, the eldest of the three sons of Reginald, second son of Somerled of the Isles by his second marriage. This Roderick was lord of Kintyre and one of the most noted pirates of his day. His descendants became extinct in the third generation. The clan Donald and clan Dougall sprung from Roderick’s brothers.
