The Scottish Nation

MACSORLEY, a surname derived from the Norse Somerled, which means Samuel. In the Gaelic it is Somhairle. The Camerons of Glennevis were called MacSorley, while those of Strone were MacGillonies, and those of Letterfinlay were MacMartins. These septs, says Gregory, (Highland and Isles, p. 77,) were all ancient families in Lochaber, and seem to have adopted the surname of Cameron, although not descended of the family.
