This name means "horse servant" and may, probably, be interpreted as "farrier". It is believed to have been introduced to Britain at the time of the Norman Conquest. It is on record in Scotland in the 12th century. The name is found in Aberdeenshire at an early date, also in Glasgow and St. Andrews. In the process of time the office of Marshal became one of great dignity.
