Watt Clan Book
A name that has truly warlike roots, it is perhaps appropriate that bearers of the Watt name and its various spelling variations often found themselves on the bloody battlefields of political and religious conflict.   But other proud bearers of the name were to be found at the very cutting edge of engineering and science, while others flourished and continue to flourish, in fields as diverse as music, sport, film and literature.   Born in 1736, James Watt was the Sco..
Weir Clan Book
A name strongly identified from at least the mid-twelfth century with the Lanarkshire area of Lowland Scotland, ‘Weir’ figures prominently in the record of the nation’s frequently turbulent history. Some of the name were to be found on the battlefield, while others were pioneering entrepreneurs whose legacy survives to this day. The colourful tale of the Weirs is presented here. ..
White Clan Book
Bearers of the name of White, and its spelling variants such as Whyte, may be surprised to learn that there is much more to the name than may first appear on the surface. This is because in many cases it came to serve as an alias for persecuted members of two proud and famous Scottish clans. Read here the intriguing and colourful tale of the Whites, both past and present. ..
Williamson Clan Book
In Gaelic forms that include MacWilliam, the Williamson name has Celtic roots that are deeply embedded in the soil of Scotland. Although heirs to their own proud tradition, bearers of the name today also enjoy a close kinship with Clan Gunn, with whom they shared both fortune and misfortune. The colourful and dramatic tale of the Williamsons, both past and present, is recounted here. ..
Wilson Clan Book
Bearers of the surname Wilson have left an indelible mark on the pages of Scotland’s vibrant story; as kinsfolk of two proud clans, they are heirs to the romance and drama attached to the Highlands, while some of their forebears were key characters in notorious episodes that stain the nation’s history. Others made a new life on foreign shores, making a profound impact on the political destinies of their adopted nations, and others have made significant contributions to science and music. R..
Wood Clan Book
It was on the high seas that bearers of the name of Wood first came to prominence, in the person of a celebrated Lord High Admiral of Scotland. Many of his descendants also achieved fame and distinction, while other branches of the name pursued new lives for themselves on foreign shores. The proud tale of the distinguished Clan Wood is recounted here. ..
Wright Clan Book
It is perhaps apt that the proud name of Wright originally denoted someone who ‘works’, because it is through working in a colourful and diverse range of pursuits that bearers of the name have achieved international fame. Allied to an ancient Scottish clan, they were at the forefront of some of the nation’s most bitter conflicts, while in later centuries others of the name gained distinction on the battlefield. The inspiring tale of the Wrights is retold here. ..
Young Clan Book
While their namesakes in the northern reaches of Scotland acquired distinction and honours as loyal and faithful servants of the Crown, the Youngs of the Borders gained a rather more dubious reputation as fierce and lawless raiders. But both sets of Youngs were always prepared to defend their nation’s proud freedom when required, often at bloody cost to themselves in battle. Here is recounted the colourful and stirring tale of bearers of a surname who have been at the forefront of Scottish..
