:-[] 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.
