:-P 3 Celts & Company • "BRUCE"

With the representatives of Norman families who accompanied William the Conqueror, those of de Brus, Robert and his two sons, were not far behind. In the name of Brusi, another branch directly Norse had already acquired a share of the Orkney earldom.
Robert's second son Adam acquired large territories in Yorkshire, and Adam's son Robert was one of the friends of the Scottish king David I who accompanied him at his accession in 1124, when returning from his sojourn in England. This Robert de Brus was granted the lordship of Annandale with the hand of that district's native heiress ['mater:' Emma de Ramesie of Dalhousie Castle, "RAMSAY" b.1062 at Carrick, Argyllshire]. The seventh of the Brus lords of Annandale, Robert de Brus (1274-1329, and later often called 'The Bruce'), was to become King Robert I, victor of Bannockburn and Liberator of Scotland.
From his mother, the heiress of Carrick, Turnberry Castle became a new nucleus of the Bruces; then from 1359 another branch spread still more extensively from Clackmannan, into Fife and elsewhere. From Kinnaird, on the Forth shore opposite, came James Bruce (1730-94), who displayed gifts more versatile and diplomatic than are suggested by a bare reminder of his Abyssinian adventures and first exploration of the Nile sources.

:oops::-[] 3 Celts & Company • "BUCHANAN"

Legend derives the clan's original name MacAusian from Irish prince Anselan O Kyan, granted a settlement in Lennox by Malcolm II. The Auselan first actually recorded was Steward to a 13th-century Earl of Lennox, from whom he obtained the Loch-Lomondside district of Buchanan, which includes Ben Lomond. His son Gilbert was the first user of the Buchanan surname, as well as founder of the branches that took his own name. From Gilbert's brothers Colman and Methlan, grandson Maurice and great-granson Walter there derive other sept names, and the separated clan MacMillan.
George Buchanan, a fore-runner (though in Latin) of Burns and Byron, the tutor of Montaigne, Mary Queen of Scots and James VI, historian and Reformationist, ranks as the clan's chief personality, though a U.S. President could be among others cited.

:-[] 3 Celts & Company • "CAMERON"

The clan, settled in Locaber since at least Bruce's time, later became an important branch of the Clan Chattan confederacy, and their name taken as Cam-shron (s silent), 'hook-nose,' is reported to have fitted many Highland Camerons. But Camerons also, from the Norman name Cambron, had for a century before Bruce been spreading widely from their Fife headquarters of the same name. If the name in common is mere coincidence, it is not the only one.
Among several branches of the Highland clan, that of the Chief acquired their Lochiel property by marriage: to make that name, with their motto 'For King and Country,' resound in the Stewart causes. Then in 1793 under Cameron of Erracht they founded the 79th or Cameron Highlanders to serve with no less distinction.
The southern Camerons of the 17th century directed their zeal rather differently. The scholarly John Cameron founded a protestant group in France called Cameronites; Richard Cameron, killed at Airdsmoss, 1660, a militant Covenanter, gave name to the Cameronian sect and a later Lowland regiment.
