    Name Meaning

    Irish (especially Ulster): in Ireland Graham is generally the Scottish name, but it has additionally been adopted as an Anglicized form of both Ó Creacháin (see Crehan ) and Ó Gormghaile (see Gormley ).

    History: The surname Graham was taken to Scotland at the beginning of the 12th century by the Norman baron William de Graham, holder of the manor of Grantham in Lincolnshire, from whom many if not all modern bearers are probably descended. The chief of Clan Graham is the Duke of Montrose.
