Brief Clan History

The first Cunningham is believed to have been a Flemish man named Wernibald, who took on the place name as his own when he received a grant of Kilmaurs in Cunningham, Ayrshire from Hugo de Morville, the Constable of Scotland, in 1140.

Haakon IV, King of Norway, arrived off the coast of this area tore-assert his rule over Scotlands Isles in 1263. This led to the sea battle of Largs from which Haakon would never return home. For his part in the battle, Harvey Cunningham of Kilmaurs had his familys property expanded by Alexander II.

In 1321, Robert the Bruce granted the lands of Lamburgton to Hugh Cunningham. When Hughs grandson Sir William married Margaret, heiress of the Dennistons of that Ilk, Glencairn became the property of theCunninghams also.

James III made Sir Williams grandson, Alexander,Earl of Glencairn in 1488. He and his King died together at the Battle of Sauchieburn later in the same year.

The 5th Earl of Glencairn was a member of the, Lords of the Congregation of Jesus Christ, whose business was misappropriating church property and undermining Scotlands government on behalf of the well-paying English. The groups work was instrumental in the Tudors destruction of Mary, Queen of Scots, rights.

While Scotland was under the control of Cromwells generals in 1653, Glencairn raised a rebellion on behalf of Charles II who was safe on the Continent. The rebellion was hopeless but in 1660 he was created Lord Chancellor of Scotland, following the Restoration.
