:-P 3 Celts & Company • "ROBERTSON"

Their first chief Duncan, from whom the numerous Robertsons take their alternative name Clan Donnachaidh or Donnachie, was friend and ally of King Robert Bruce, and tradition had him a son of the Angus Mor mentioned under the MacDonalds. The clan remained ever active and loyal to the Stewarts, and took the new name from their chief Robert (himself named after Bruce), to commemorate his capturing the murderers of James I in 1437. From The name of their ancient seat in Atholl the Chiefs retain the style Struan Robertson, but branches became distributed widely in Scotland and indeed throughout the world.

:-[] 3 Celts & Company • "ROSS"

The Norman family de Ros were established in North Ayrshire in the 12th century, and from the same quarter installed a fresh branch over two centuries ago by purchasing the Balnagowan seat of the unrelated Clan Ross chiefs. Hence many Rosses in the South, in the Moray to Aberdeen sector, and some in Ross-shire itself are really of the same ancestry as Clan Rose, pronounced also Ross.
The Ross clan, otherwise Anrias from a 13th-century chief MacGilleAndreas, 'son of a devotee of St. Andrew,' took name from the province of which their earliest chiefs were Earls. They served with Bruce at Bannockburn and came to possess a large section of Ross-shire, but lost much power after Harlaw 1411 and the 1476 forfeiture of the earldom to the crown. In more recent times Rosses have earned front rank in such spheres as Polar Exploration, and Tropical Medicine.

:-[] 3 Celts & Company • "SCOTT"

The first recorded of this surname, originally spelt Scot, was Uchtred filius Scoti ('son of a Scot,' i.e. not Saxon or Norman) about 1124, and his grandsons are believed to have founded the branches of Buccleuch and of Balwearie in Fife; from which in turn many others and a noted clan of the Border. The great Sir Walter is far from the only brilliant star among 'the Saucy Scotts.' Michael Scot, 'the Wizard' of Balwearie, contemporary scientist with the 13th-century Rodger Bacon, then the 17th-century Sir John Scot of Scotstarvit, another sane eccentric, and David Scott among our finest painters are three that merit fuller appreciation.
