    Stuart of Bute. Also, my grandmother's last name was Rodger and I've been unable to find if that name would fit into a Scottish clan. I tend to think no because it sounds more Anglo-Norman.

    According to my Grandmother, we are descendants of the MacPhàrlain clan of the lowlands - though through a bastard, and the name is now long lost.

    MacFarlane History
    ScotClans ProductsThe MacFarlanes are descendants of the Earl of Lennox whose brother was to bestow the lands at Arrochar, by Loch Long, confirmed to Iain MacPharlain in 1420. When Earl Duncan of Lennox was executed by James I the MacFarlanes had a valid claim to the title, yet it was given to the Stewarts by the crown. Initially there was some dispute but they would remain loyal to the Stewarts.

    The 13th chief fell against the English at the Battle of Pinkie 1547, during the minority of Mary Queen of Scots.

    However they were to play a decisive part in her downfall at the Battle of Langside 1568. They returned their loyalty to the crown in 1645 when Walter the 16th chief fought under Montrose for Charles I. Oliver Cromwell was to burn the MacFarlane seat at Inveruglas, Loch Lomond, in his invasion of Scotland.

    Walter MacFarlane the 20th chief was a noted antiquary and scholar, devoting his life to research to his country. The Arrochar seat was to be sold in 1767, when he died without heirs, by his brother.

    The direct male line failed in 1887 and remained without a chief.
    The family Name is now Rodden, though the head of our family occupies an area close to Loch-Lomand.

    Recorded in many spellings, this is a surname of either Germanic and Anglo-Saxon pre 7th century origins, or it is from the Gaelic (Irish). If Anglo-Saxon it is locational and originates from the place called Roddam, in the English county of Northumberland, and near to the town of Alnwick, or from living near a rodum, meaning a clearing in a forest. The placename is recorded in the Curia Regis rolls of the year 1201 as Rodun, and later in 1236 as Rodum, so much for early spelling. The derivation is from the 7th century word "rod", meaning a clearing, and 'ham', a place or house. Early examples of the surname development in Northumberland region include the recordings of Margaret Roaddam in 1603, Margery Rodhenn in 1609, John Rodam in 1623, and Edward Roodom in 1626, whilst Ann Rodan is recorded in London in 1680. If Irish the origination is from O'Rodain, meaning the descendant of the son of the lively one! The modern surname can be found as Roddam, Roddan, Roden, and Rodden, which can be English or Irish, and O'Rodane, O'Rudden and Reddin, which are Irish. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of William de Roddam, which was dated 1296, in the "Northumberland Hundred Rolls", during the reign of King Edward 1, known as "The Hammer of the Scots", 1272 - 1307.

    They are part of the Clan MacLeod of Lewis…Although some Lewis families are listed as Stewart the location of your family would indicate MacLeod as Skye was mainly Clan Donald and Clan MacLeod land…other Lewis families live in Wales…

    I personally do not have membership to a clan, but I descend from members of the Elphinstone clan.

    I do not know if it is a clan but Barder is the Scottish surname my forefathers beared, it seems to have some connection to the Dodds family/clan.

    Everything I look up says anyone with a particular surname is a member of that clan. So, going by that and the last names of my ancestors:

    Fergusson, Gordon, Campbell, MacIntyre, and maybe a few others if I go back far enough.

    As far as being a 'card carrying' member of a clan with meetings and whatnot, none. I did get invited to the local Clan Gordon Society, but it's not local enough for me to actually join. - The furthest I can really trace that line back to is to the immigrant John George Gordon.
    mtDNA - H_7_a (ftDNA) H_7_a_1 (23andme)
    AbDNA - 100% Eur. 23andme: 99.99% Eur., .01% Af.
    23andme: 99.73% European, .27% African
    23andme V3 update awaiting use, got a kit for mom too.
