Brief Clan History

There is a legend that Gramus, a chief of Caledonia, was instrumental in demolishing the Roman Wall built by the Roman Emperor Antoninus between the Firth of Forth and the Firth of Clyde.

However, William de Graham is the first recorded of the name in Scotland and was given lands in Midlothian by David I in the 12th century. In the 13th century, the family married into the earldom of Strathearn and acquired lands at Auchterarder in Perthshire.

Sir Nicholas de Graham is recorded as attending the Scottish Parliament in 1290, an occasion upon whichthe marriage between Princess Margaret. Maid of Norway and Prince Edward of England was negotiated. Sir John de Graham, a supporter of Sir William Wallace, fell at the Battle of Falkirk in 1298.

There is a tradition that the first Graham, know as Gramus, forced a breach in the Roman Antonine wall in 420AD. The clan held lands in the Scottish Borders and later in Strathearn and Perthshire.

One of the many notable Grahams was James Graham, 1st Marquis of Montrose, who was executed in 1650 for his support of the cause of Charles I.

The Grahams of Montrose trace their origin to a date before the 12th century. Known as the Gallant Grahams, they were chivalrous knights and fought in many of Scotlands battles, including the Battle of Flodden in 1513. William, 3rd Lord of Graham, was created Earl of Montrose in 1504.

The 5th Earl, who was called the Great Montrose, was created Marquis of Montrose in 1644. His ability as a soldier was outstanding, as was his campaign in Scotland on behalf of the king.

He was executed in 1650. The 4th Marquis was raised to the Dukedom of Montrose in 1707. The Grahams of Menteith are an important branch of Clan Graham.
