Brief Clan History

With the derivation of their name found in the latin clericus, denoting a scholar, scribe, or secretary, the ancestors of the Clarks of today performed an important function by acting as scribes for both the church and Monarchy.

Although found all over Scotland, an important family territory was the area of Penicuik, in Midlothian, with Penicuik House built in the late eighteenth century for Sir James Clerk of Penicuik.

This name was not originally a surname but signified a man in a religious order, or one who made his living by writing, but was something more than a scrivener. The name was common all over the Lowlands but, until the 14th century, it describes a man's occupation rather than his family.

In the 15th century it is definitely a surname, as in the case of Robert Clark, a ship master of Leith, in 1446. Families of Clarks attached themselves to several clans, first, no doubt, as men of business to the chiefs.

Both Clan Chattan and Clan Cameron admit them as septs. The name is spelt variously as Clark, Clarke and Clerk.

How to wash

In the first instance we recommend dry cleaning all wool products.

If you wish wash by hand or by machine please do not wring the item, or allow the item to float free in a washing machine. when using a machine always place your product in a pillow case so that it does not tangle or loose its shape.

By hand wash gently using luke warm water and when drying taking great care to ensure that the item is placed flat on a towel for it to dry. This way the product will keep its shape and its softness, and look as new as when first bought.
Always use a recommended wool detergent ie Woolite.
