Johnstone Clan Book

Johnstone Clan Book

Although Johnstone in its various spellings is one of the most
frequent surnames in Scotland, the history of the Johnstone
clan is not well known. The aim of this booklet is to provide
a modern, accurate overview of one of the most powerful
clans in its proper historical context. This short history is
comprehensive, accessible, concise and readable.

As long ago as the sixteenth century the Parliament of
Scotland referred to the Johnstones as a clan, along with
many others along the border of Scotland and England.
However, the distinctive culture and vital role of the
Border clans in the mainstream of Scottish history have
only recently gained popular recognition. The Borderer is
different from the Highlander, but his history is just as
thrilling, his heritage just as heroic.

The Johnstones of the Borders are not the only Johnstones.
Another distinct group is from the northeast Scottish
lowlands, and there are Johnstones from a variety of other
locations in Scotland. Today, all Johnstones are considered
to be of the same clan.
