Baird clan history

The surname Baird has been linked to Lanarkshire since the 13th century, as well as to the Aberdeen and Banff regions. Notable families bearing this name emerged in the 14th century. The Bairds have played a significant role in the legal profession and national affairs for many years. John Baird was granted the title Lord Newbyth as Lord of Session in the 17th century. General Sir David Baird (1737 – 1829) joined the Army in 1772 and served in India from 1780 onwards. He was wounded and captured by Hyder Ali, but went on to capture Pondicherry in 1793 and Seringapatam in 1799. He is renowned for his march across the desert from the Red Sea to the River Nile in 1801. In 1805, he led an expedition to the Cape of Good Hope.

The family motto is “Dominus fecit”  which translates to “God Made”.
