MCCORMACK Family History

Recorded as MacCormac, MacCormack, McCormack, McCormick and Cormack, this is a surname of Scottish origins, and one well recorded in Ireland, and particularly in Ulster. It derives from the pre 10th century Gaelic personal name "Cormac", for which there are two possible meanings. The first is "The raven", from the word "corb", raven and the fused "mac", meaning son of, and the second "The charioteer", from an even the earlier celtic word also spelt "corb" and again with the fused mac. Gaelic and Celtic surbnames were almost invariably patronymic and have developed over the many centuries from an original nickname for the first chief of the clan.

McCormack

Looking for info on James McCormack born about 1833 (maybe RosCommon) Was a gardener for Queen Victoria - when he and his fiancee (Mary Shea) (Kilkenny) , maid for the Queen were intending to leave Ireland and come to Newfoundland, Canada - she gave them a very large grant of land in St. John's, Newfoundland. They married at the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist (now know as the Bascilia) Nov 24, 1853, in St. John's, Newfoundland. They settled on this land in Riverhead and raised their family. Mary died in 1899 St. John's, NL and James died 10 Feb 1898 and they are both buried in Mount Carmel RC Cemetery. If someone has some info they can add, please let me know. Thanks My grandmother was their granddaughter - Catherine (McCormack) Madden 1892- 1937.
