Coat of Arms

Legend surrounding the McCulloh name says that in the time of the Crusades, a Scottish warrior carrying on his shield a boar was conspicuous for his prowess and personal daring in the Holy Land. On his return, William the Lion, in recognition of his prowess, granted him the lands of Myrton, Glasserton and Auchtnaught. Boar in Gaelic, the old Galloway tongue, is cullach. The soldier adopted as his patronymic the word Cullach; his son would have been called MacCullach.


This McCulloh coat of arms was commissioned by my grandfather Rev. Charles W. McCulloh, Sr. in the 1970’s. Click here to learn more: Coat of Arms
