Cameron clan history

The rugged western coastline of Scotland and the desolate Hebrides islands serve as the ancestral homeland for the Cameron family. The name Cameron suggests that the original bearer resided in either Cameron near Edinburgh, Cameron in Lennox, or Cameron in Fife. Therefore, the name Camerons of the Lowlands has a territorial origin, originating from one of these three places. The Highland Clan name Cameron may have derived from the Lowland name, but it also has roots in the Gaelic word “cam-shron,” meaning wry or hook-nosed.

The Cameron Clan was renowned as being “Fiercer than fierceness itself” and was considered one of the oldest clans in Scotland. The hereditary name of the Clan chiefs is MacDhomnuill Duibh, derived from their ancestor “Black Donald.”

The first confirmed chief of the clan was discovered in 1411, during the reign of Donald Du. After this period, the clan divided into three distinct branches, each located at Letterfinlay, Strone, and Glen Nevis, with the clan seat situated at Lochaber.

The surname Cameron was initially found in Angus, which is part of the Tayside region in northeastern Scotland. Presently, it is known as the Council Area of Angus, formerly referred to as Forfar or Forfarshire. The Camerons were situated among the hills surrounding Lochy, Arkaig, and Ely.

According to tradition, the Camerons are believed to have descended from the Kings of Denmark and likely played a role in the restoration of King Fergus II in 404. The earliest written records of the Cameron Clan date back to the 13th century.

In 1214, Adam de Kamerun served as a witness to a charter for the monks of Cupar. In 1219, Hugh Cambrun held the position of sheriff of Forfar, and in 1233, Johannes Cambron served as a charter witness in Moray. In 1360, the Cameron Clan received the first official grant of the lands of Lochaber, and later obtained Locheil and Locharkaig from the Lord of the Isles.

Throughout history, the Camerons were engaged in ongoing conflicts with the Clan .

The Cameron Family motto is “aonaibh ri cheile” which translates to “unite”
