The surname Troup is of territorial origin, coming from the manor of Troup in the parish of Gamrie in Banffshire.
It is said that the Troup of that Ilk line ended when the heiress married one of the younger sons of Keith, Earl Marischal.
Mentions in an Ayrshire charter, circa 1370-1380, of a John of Trowpe and his half-lands suggest that there may have been lands of this name also in this region.
