Scotland: surname “MacAnsh. Disguised form of MacAngus. James M’Ance was a merchant burgess of Dumfries before 1678.” The Surnames of Scotland, Their Origin, Meaning, and History, by George F. Black, Ph.D., pub. 1946, by New York Public Library, Eighth Reprinting 1986, pg. 453.


Scotland: vs. Mc/Mac Canish, which is a different surname, not to be confused with McA/I/Ninch --

“MacCanish. Thomas McKanyss was burgess of Glasgow, 1524. John M’Caniss in Ballechragan in record, 1664, and Alexander M’Canish of Garvalt in record, 1698. It is very probable that the present day MacAnish, MacAinish, and MacAinsh families of Perthshire are descended from the old MacCanish sept of Atholl, and also that they were not of MacInnes or MacAngus origin, but really a branch of the MacNish stock in Atholl”.
