Wallace Clan history  

The Wallace family has its roots in the Scottish Lowland region of Strathclyde, close to Glasgow. Family members can also be found in Ayrshire and Renfrewshire. Following the trend of other Lowland families, they adopted a surname in the Norman fashion. The earliest recorded use of the name dates back to 1160 when Richard Walensis signed a land charter. The most well-known figure from the family is undoubtedly Sir William Wallace, known as “the Hero of Scotland”, who was born in Elderslie in 1274. In 1297, he led the Scottish forces against King Edward I of England, achieving victory at the Battle of Stirling Bridge and expelling English garrisons from Scotland. However, he suffered defeat at Falkirk in 1298. Despite this, he continued to wage a guerrilla war until his capture by treachery in 1305, leading to his execution.

The Wallace family motto is “Pro Libertate” which translates to “For liberty”.
