Lockery / Lochrie


Lockery was accepted by CDSNA as a sept in December 1988 based on its being noted as a sept in the 1954 publication Badges of the Scottish Clans

According to Black’s The Surnames of Scotland, Lochrie is…

A surname recorded by M’Kerlie, may be of local origin from Lochree in the parish of Inch, or from Lochrie in Ayrshire.  

For our CDSNA purposes, the reference to Lochrie in Ayrshire makes more sense.  It is also possible that this surname is a variant of Lockerby.
