    History: The earliest bearers of the Scottish Carrick surname (see 1 above) were descendants of the 12th-century lords of Galloway who became earls of Carrick in the early 13th century. The earldom passed by marriage to the Bruce family in later in the 13th century and then to the crown with the succession of Robert Bruce, earl of Carrick, to the throne in 1306. Illegitimate descendants of the earliest earls, themselves noblemen, continued to use the Carrick surname.
