Brief Clan History

Holding lands in Dumfriesshire, Refnrewshire, and Ayrshire, the clan was at the forefront of key events in Scotlands story. This included helping to repel Viking invasion at the battle of Largs in 1263, while William Cunningham, the 13th Earl of Clencairn, was an important patron and friend of the national bard Robert Burns.

Ayrshire is the home of this family where they were settled in the 12th century. For bravery at the Battle of Largs in 1263 Hervey de Cunningham received the lands of Kilmaurs from the King.

By marriage the family came into possession of other properties including Glencairn, and Alexander de Cunningham was created Earl of Glencairn in 1488.

The 9th Earl who was Lord Justice General, raised an army in the Highlands in support of King Charles II in 1653. The 14th Earl was a friend of Scotlands National Bard, Robert Burns, who, when the Earl died, wrote the well-known Lament for the Earl of Glencairn.

Other important branches of this family were those of Corsehill, Craigends and Caprington.

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.
