Origin of Cree, Meaning of Cree

Origin: There has been some speculation about the origin of the name Creel. One is:There is a small town on Eastern coast of Scotland named Crail, that I have seen used as last name. (have heard it pronounced 'creel'). Which makes some sense as some Creels are furniture makers, ie. cane bottom chairs. Also the irish name on message board is another possibility as the Scots and Irish went back and forth across the Irish sea. Also have heard that it was 'Norman' from Kyrel or French from Creil(sic).

Origin: McCreadie', is the original spelling for this surname. It is on a 1120 A.D. census roll in Ayrshire, Scotland, to determine the rate of taxation. McCreadie, (and all it's variants), were a distinguished Donegal family in Ireland, who were hereditary Scribes and Poets to the Kings of Orgiall and were displaced by the intrusion of Scottish families in what was known as the 'Plantation of Ulster', They moved to the norhteast into Scotland and settled at Peirceton in Ayrshire where they also acquired territories near Stranrawer. Many families migrated back to the ancestrial home of Northern Ireland to flee religious persecution. Alot of them were banished from Scotland, to the Colonies, Australia, or to the Carolina's. During the U.S. war for independents, McCreadie allegiances were divided. Some remained American, while others became United Empire Loyalists and moved to Canada.
