Cathcarts originated in Scotland. In fact there is a Cathcart County in Scotland. Some Cathcarts moved to Ireland (three brothers) married and raised large families. Over several generations there became a large Cathcart family in Ireland. My grandfather (also Robert Cathcart) thought he was a 100% pure pedigree Irishman.
My cousin did a very thourough investigation of our family tree to learn that while our ancestors came here from Ireland, they could be traced back to the three brothers who first settled in Ireland from Scotland.
Hope this is helpful.
Rich Cathcart
