Scurlock Name Meaning
Welsh and Irish: probably from a personal name formed with Welsh ysgor ‘fort’, ‘camp’, ‘defense’ + the adjectival suffix -og. The family name is strongly associated from an early date (1184 and 1250) with two fortified manors in South Wales, Scurlage in the Gower Peninsula and Scurla, now known as Trecastell, near Llantrisant, in mid Glamorgan. However, it is not clear whether the family name is derived from the place name or vice versa.
