Scottish Clans and Family Names by Roderick Martine
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This book provides a guide to the surnames of Scotland. Each entry covers the history, areas of family lands, castles and tartans (ancient and modern) associated with the powerful clans of the Highlands - and the great families of the Lowlands. The author's extensive introduction puts clan development into historical context. There are 240 tartan patterns and over 70 photographs of clan and family lands and their castles in full. Additional photographs highlight famous clan personalities. The clan armorial crest illustations and the designs for the Matriculated Standards of the Clan Chiefs of Scotland are the work of the late heraldic artist, Don Pottinger. Malcolm Innes of Edingight CVO, Lord Lyon King of Arms, has contributed a foreword. The six pages of maps indicating spheres of influence of families about the turn of the 18th century were compiled by the late Sir Iain Moncreiffe and are supplemented by an extensive cross-index of sept names. Recent years have seen the revival of clan and family societies throughout the world and this book provides a comprehensive guide to all those who wish to know more about their Scottish ancestors.
