The Scottish Clans - Over 300 Clans Featured by Donald Cuthill

Good Little Resource with History on Scottish Clans

Anyone with Scot-Irish Ancestry will appreciate this nice little reference book. It includes a well written history of the origins of Scottish clan society, including the early invasion periods and settlers, as well as a rather extensive overview of many, many Scottish Clans and their roots, name origins, key historical figures and events linked to them.

A glaring omission for me as a non-professional genealogical researcher, as well as a just person of interest, is the lack of an index or glossary. Not being able to quickly look-up and find Clan Chapter Headings, Clan Names, Key Names, Key Locations, etc. referenced in the book is very frustrating. Otherwise, I would have given this book a five ***** rating. However, every reference resource must be easily and quickly researchable.

Before all chiefs had arms; however, not all of these are recorded in the Public Register of All Arms and Bearings in Scotland , which was only established in In Scottish heraldry only chiefs or heads of clans, families, or names bear undifferenced arms. A clan is considered a "noble incorporation" because a clan chief is a title of honour in Scotland and the chief confers his or her noble status onto the clan. Because armigerous clans do not have such chiefs, they are not recognised as noble communities and have no legal standing under Scots law.

They are clans where the chiefdom is vacant or disputed. Many kin groups catagorised as 'armigerous clans' are lowland gentry families who are unlikely to have ever had a chiefly tradition. In many cases their current circumstances are obscure, reflecting failures of dynastic fortune and the massive social changes which overtook the British landed classes in the wake of the First World War. Many armigerous clans are dormant. This means that they are not currently united by a family association or any leadership which promotes a common identity and heritage associated with the name. Others are most likely extinct in that no modern family bears the name.
