Clans and Societies

What is a Clan, Family or Sept?

A Clan or Family is a legally recognized group in Scotland, which has a corporate identity in the same way that a company, club or partnership has a corporate identity in law. The Lyon Court recognizes both the Clan and the Family as being the same thing now.

A Sept is a family name that can be related to a clan or larger family for various reasons. Usually this came about either through marriage or by a small family seeking protection from a larger and more powerful neighbor. Nowadays, this relationship is most often seen in the clan tartan that individual families are entitled to wear.
