Name Meaning

Scottish: variant of the surname Marjoribanks, which according to Black was adopted by a family previously known as Johnston , when, in the early 16th century, they acquired the lands of Ratho-Marjoribankis in Renfrewshire. This estate was so called from having been bestowed on Robert the Bruce's daughter Marjorie ( see Margeson ) on her marriage in 1316 to Walter the High Steward.
