Good Evening,
My grandfather's family name was Reoch. A few months after his marriage at Dunblane in 1899, he adopted Rae as his surname.
No one in the family knows of any reason why he did the name change.
My reason for writing being, I want to know if after the 109 years my family have been known as Rae, merits the family being accepted as a genuine sept family of Clan MacRae.
I look forward to reading forum comments.

Best Regards
John Rae.
