Brief Clan History

The clan was one of main members of the great confederation of clans known as Clan Chattan and were engaged in many bloody encounters, including the infamous Battle of the Clans, fought at the North Inch, Perth, in 1396, and where they were annihilated. A branch of the clan also fought in the service of France during the seventeenth century.

This clan takes its name, Clan Dhai, from its first known chief, David Dhu. In earlier times the chief was described as of Invernahaven. In or about 1350 they joined in the Clan Chattan Confederation of Clans and were involved in a quarrel over presidency with the Clan Macpherson.

Some historians claim that this quarrel led to the famous combat on the North Inch of Perth in 1396 when thirty members of each clan fought against each other in the presence of the King. All but one of the Davidsons were killed and from then onwards the clan was not prominent.

The Davidsons of Tulloch and the Davidsons of Cantray were influential branches of the clan in the 18th century. The Tulloch branch is now regarded as the senior branch.

The chiefs of the Davidsons are said to have been settled, in early times at Invernahavon, a small estate in Badenoch, at the junction of the Truim with the Spey, and when they emerge into history in 1370 or 1386 the holders of the name appear to have been of considerable number, and in close alliance with the Mackintoshes from whose forebears they claim descent.
