    Clan Macleod

    I am a MacLeod of Harris, aka: The Siol Thormoid - or the seed of Tormod or Norman. Thormoid / Tormod was the eldest son of my direct ancestor Leod or Ljot - who was of Royal Norse Viking descent, descended from the Norse Kings of Man and the Isles.

    The greater part of my ancestry is Highland Scot, so there are many other clans in my recent ancestry I could bore you all with.

    Recent 'Y' DNA studies have confirmed a Viking origin for the Clan MacLeod in Western Norway. Legend says we were "mighty Vikings from the town of Bergen" This was despite initial skepticism from proponants of the idea that all R1b haplogroup was "Celtic". Our particular haplotype defined by the L-165 marker defines our grouping as a Viking one. All confirmed within the last year or so.

    These people were known as the Gall-Gaels or Norse-Gaels. My great grandfather Norman was the last to speak the Gaelic in my direct line, along w/ his siblings.

    I envy you.

    I think my great-great-great.....etc grandfather killed your great-great.....well you get the idea, maybe, don't quote me on that.

    From my mother's side I am descended of the great Clan Campbell! Our founder Colin the Great came from Ireland in the 1100's and settled in Argyll near Inverary.

    My mother's side is is Clark. The Clark family itself was never really a clan but is regarded as a sept (sub-branch) of both Cameron and Macpherson.

    Here is the family Tartan, "Blue Clergy":

    I am a descendant of clan Borland which is an affiliate of the Boyd clan. I have read that there is a Borland tartan but I have not been able to locate it.

    Doing some research on the Lennox clan I came upon these images:





    The Clan History

    The Celtic earls of Lennox commanded the Vale of Leven between the 12th and 15th centuries. The name Lennox comes from the Gaelic name for that place. Sir John Stewart of Darnley (d.1495) was created 1st Earl of Lennox of the new line by King James III in 1473, and Henry Stuart (1545-67), Lord Darnley, eldest son of the 4th Earl of Lennox, was the second husband of Mary, Queen of Scots, and father of King James VI, who promoted the 8th Earl to be Duke of Lennox in 1581.

    LENNOX: Of local origin from the ancient earldom of that name which comprised most of Dunbartonshire and parts of western Stirlingshire. The 1st Earl of Lennox is thought to have been a 4th generation descendant of Ecgfrith of Northumbria whose son Arkil came north to the court of Malcolm III in the late 11th century. Arkil's grand-daughter married into the native Celtic stock and their son became the 1st Earl. The family were adherents of Bruce in his fight for independence and appear in many charters of the period. Duncan, 8th Earl, whose daughter married the Regent Albany, Governor of Scotland during James I's captivity, suffered the same fate as his son-in-law and grandsons on the 'heading hill' of Stirling in 1425. The Lennox lands were left with Albany's widow, as his nearest heir, and the king's hatred of the Albanys extended to the widow who spent the rest of her life in virtual exile on an island in Loch Lomond. On her death the titles were contested among the off-spring of her two sisters, with the final outcome that they passed to a descendant of the younger who had married into the Stewarts of Darnley. Thenceforth, the Earldom of Lennox and Lordship of Darnley were held conjointly by the Stewarts, and with the marriage of the 4th Earl to the daughter of the Dowager Queen Margaret Tudor and the Earl of Angus and the elder son of this union being Henry, styled Lord Darnley, consort of Mary Queen of Scots the Lennox line reached its zenith when their son became James VI of Scotland and I of England. The present Lennox tartan is said to derive from a portrait (now lost) of this 4th Earl's wife. The honours of Lennox were elevated to a dukedom in 1581, but on the death of the 6th Duke they reverted to Charles II, who later bestowed them on a 'natural' son. In this time evidence of the surname is established for it appears in the earliest Register of Lyon Court where arms were granted to John Lennox of Woodhead. The name is found in Campsie, a few miles to the north of Glasgow, where the families of Woodhead, Branshogle, Balglas and Antermony had their residences

    TARTAN: Lennox (Clan and District).

    Motto: Avant Darnlie (French : Darnly to the fore); En la rose je fleuris (French : I flourish in the rose); Bydand (Steadfast)

    History of Clan Elphinstone (I descend from them via a line in my grandmother's paternal family, my 11x great grandmother was an Anne Elphinstone married to Robert Lockhart of Lanarkshire, Anne is the daughter of Alexander Elphinstone and Lillias, then Alexander's line goes back to the John Elphinstone mentioned in the wiki article below, I also descend from the Alexander Elphinstone d. 1513 who fought for James IV through this line, the byname Alexander was used repeatedly among my Elphinstone ancestors after the death of the Alexander who died at Flodden Field):

    Origins of the Name

    The Clan Elphinstone is believed to have originated from Airth in Stirlingshire. The surname Elphinstone derives from the territory of Elphinstone in the parish of Tranent, East Lothian. The original name is thought to have been 'de Erth', which later became 'Elfinstun', and finally 'Elphinstone'. The de Erths inherited lands near Tranent through marriage and built a castle there. Deeds dating from 1235 bear the name ‘de Elfinstun’, and grants dating from 1250 record the name John de Elphinstone as a witness. Sir John Elfinstun married Margaret Seton of Clan Seton, the niece of King Robert I of Scotland[citation needed].

    Some people believe that John de Elphinstone was previously named John de Swinton of Clan Swinton. Supporters of this theory claim that Clan Elphinstone, in common with many Borders clans, was founded from the Swinton Family[citation needed].

    15th Century

    A descendant, William Elfinstun, became rector of Kirkmichael at the age of twenty-five. He studied Civil and Canon Law in Paris, eventually becoming Professor of Law in that university. In 1484 he was appointed Bishop of Aberdeen and later Lord Chancellor of Scotland, a post he held until the death of King James III of Scotland in June of 1489. In 1494 he was given a papal bull from Pope Alexander VI to found the University of Aberdeen. He died in 1514.
    [edit] 16th Century & Anglo Scottish Wars

    In 1513 during the Anglo-Scottish Wars, a cousin of William Elfinstun, Sir Alexander Elphinstone, led the Clan Elphinstone at the Battle of Flodden Field. Sir Alexander was slain in the battle, fighting in support of King James IV of Scotland

    Alexander's son, also called Alexander, took over as chief and led the Clan Elphinstone at the Battle of Pinkie Cleugh in 1547, where he was killed. The fourth Lord Elphinstone was appointed in 1599 as a judge of the Supreme Court of Scotland in 1599 and later Lord high Treasurer[citation needed].
    [edit] 18th to 19th Centuries & the Napoleonic Wars

    The eleventh Lord Eliphinstone was lieutenant governor of Edinburgh Castle. His younger brother, George Keith Elphinstone, was a successful and distinguished naval commander. The squadron of ships he served on was used to protect British shipping interests off the eastern coast of America. In 1795 he was made vice-admiral and commanded the fleet that captured the Cape of Good Hope, compelling the Dutch fleet to surrender without a shot being fired. Elphinstone was rewarded for this victory with an Irish barony. He was later promoted to the rank of admiral, and created Baron Keith of Banheath. In 1814 he was raised to the rank of Viscount. William George Elphinstone, the Viscount's nephew, was a colonel who fought against the French at the Battle of Waterloo in 1815 during the Napoleonic Wars.

    The Boyd Clan tartan is quite sharp, if you ask me. I really like it.
