Lecky, Leckie—These two names are the anglicised forms of M'Cleery (Mac A' Chléirich), also anglicised McAlery, McLeery, M'Clery, McAlary, and Clarke. The sept was located in Crow-Leckie, in Dumbarton Co., Scotland; Gilfelan McAllan and others were tried at Stirling Assizes in 1477 for the murder of Gillespie McClery.
