:-[] 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.

:-P:-[] 3 Celts & Company • "SINCLAIR"

The St Clairs first arrived in England with William the Conqueror, then in the Scotland of David I a branch became settled at Roslin, near Edinburgh. From 1379 these gave name to Scotland's most northerly clan and acquired the chiefship by a marriage to the heiress of the earldom of Caithness. Apart from local feuds with the Gunns and others, Sinclairs have frequently distinguished themselves in Scottish history. One Sir William fell in Spain, 1330, with the Douglas who was bearing Bruce's heart to the Holy Land. Then to Sinclair's green is counted unlucky, since so many of them wearing it fell with their Chief at Flodden, 1513. Sir John Sinclair of Ulbster, painted by Raeburn as Commander of the Fencible regiment he raised in 1794, was a most practical idealist, forerunner of social surveys and planned agriculture, and first originated the word 'Statistics.'
