Some of the first settlers of this family name or some of its variants were: Sir John Cochrane of Ochiltree applied to the King for a grant of 12;000 acres in Carolina on which to settle his clansmen in 1682; and many of the Clan followed naming many villages and towns in North America with the Clan name.
Cohran is most likely a variant spelling of Cochran, usually pronounced "Cawhorn", which is probably the old Scottish pronunciation.
