Surname Dictionary

L'Estrange mod.nos.: W Meath etc. Ir. Mac Conchoigcríche (hound from abroad). This was an ancient first name associated with the O'Clerys and Mageoghans. It has been anglicised Peregrine meaning foreign, so telling only half the story. Coincidentally, an English family L'Estrange settled in the same area in 16 cent, so only a genealogical investigation could sort them out. The modern French name is Létrange (foreigner). SI.
