Apparently the name Mcgill means ''Son of the wanderer''. Well, he wandered far, i cant pin the bugger down. Seeking the origins of the family name. Great grandfather moved from Ireland to Scotland sometime in the early 1900's. His son (Felix Mcgill) owned a coal yard in the east end of Glasgow in the 30's or 40's. Predominantly interested in the origins of the name, though any other info appreciated....Slangevar.
