Brief Clan History

The name is believed to be of Norman origin and it was a Baird who saved the life of the Scots King William the Lion, who reigned from 1165 to 1214, by rescuing him from a wild boar. Lands were held throughout Scotland, particularly in Lanarkshire and Arberdeenshire, and the clans most famous son was Helensburgh-born John Logie Baird, inventor of television.

The mythological motif of saving the King through a feat of strength, common to other clan histories such as Baird and Turnbull, is also at the origin of the Baird clan.

The legend recounts that the first Baird saved William the Lion from a wild boar - the killing of a wild boar also bearing similarities to the origin of Clan Campbell.

The Baird name seems to reflect the geographical location of lands held by the family in Lanarkshire near the village of Biggar in the thirteenth century. Early in the fourteenth century King Robert Bruce bestowed the lands at Meikle and Little Kyp, also in Lanarkshire, to Richard Baird.

It is stated that Fergus Debard, John Bard, and Robert Bard, who swore submission to Edward I of England, were from the Kyp branch of the family.

As the family expanded, however, the principal Baird family came to occupy lands in Auchmedden in Aberdeenshire.
