Brief Clan History

Duncans of today can lay claim to an illustrious descent from the ancient kings of Scotland. Also known as Clan Donnachaidh and linked today to what became Clan Robertson, it was through House of Atholl that they ruled Scotland during the eleventh and twelfth centuries, most famously through King Duncan who was murdered by Macbeth in 1040.

The personal name Duncan can be found on Scotlands oldest records in its Gaelic form Donnchadh. Among these records is a reference to the death in 717 of Dunchad, the eleventh Abbot of Iona.

In 965 the killing of the Abbot of Dunkeld is recorded, showing his name to be Duchad. When Duncan I took the Scottish throne, his grandfather had the blood of several relatives on his hands, having murdered the way clear for Duncan.

The Duncans come from the same stock as the Clan Robertson, called Clan Donnachaidh, and are descended from fat Duncan or Donnachaidh Reamhar, who lived in the 13th century. This ancestor led his men in support of Robert the Bruce at the Battle of Bannockburn in 1314.

The Duncans possessed lands in Fifeshire including Gourdie and Lundie. Sir William Duncan, who was physician to King George III, was created a Baronet in 1764. Alexander Duncan of Lundie, Provost of Dundee, supported the Hanoverian Royal Family against the Jacobite* s in 1745.

His son, Adam, became famous as an Admiral. He defeated the Spanish at Cape St Vincent in 1780, and his most notable victory was gained at Camperdown in 1797. In 1831 he was created Earl of Camperdown.
