Old Travel Blog Photograph Of Gilmour Family From Govan Glasgow Scotland


Old travel Blog photograph of the Gilmour family from Govan, Glasgow, Scotland. The ancestors of the Gilmour family lived among the Strathclyde Briton people in the Scottish and English Borderlands. It is a name for a devotee of the Virgin Mary. Looking back further, we find the name Gilmour was originally derived from the Gaelic Gille Moire, which means follower of Mary. Gilmore is most often, even in England, an anglicised form of the Scots gaelic name Gille Moire or the Irish names Mac Giolla Mhuire and Mac Giolla Mhir.
