This interesting surname is of Scottish locational origin from a place called Colquhoun in the former county of Aberdeenshire (now part of Grampian region), first recorded in the form of "Colghoun" in 1246. The name appears to derive from the Gaelic "coil", "cuil", a nook, corner or "coill(e)" a wood plus "cumhann" narrow; hence "narrow corner or wood". Colquhoun is the name of a Scottish family descended from Umfridus de Kilpatrick, who acquired the lands of Colquhoun in the reign of Alexander 11 (1214-1249). The surname is first recorded in the mid 13th Century. Vmfredus de Kelquon witnessed a confirmation charter by Robert 1 to Sir John Colquhoun (1308). About the middle of the 14th Century Sir Robert Colquhoun married the heiress of Humphrey de Luss and thus became Lord of Colquhoun and Luss.
