:-[] 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.
