That is interesting but I have never found anything to suggest that the name originates in Scotland. I have traced the name back to the 1300's in Norfolk, which was about the time that family names first started being used.
Also up to the late 1600's everyone with this name that I have located can be traced back to Norfolk, apart from the USA link, which I have not been able to locate.
If you have a look at http://www.spatial-literacy.org/UCLnames/Surnames.aspx this also suggests the name originates in Norfolk, as there is no trace of the name in Scotland in the 1881 census.
What have you found that suggests the origin is Scotland?
The MICKLEBERRY spelling only occurs in the USA and MICKELBOROUGH is more common as MICKLEBOROUGH in England.
