Brief Clan History

The clan first appears in the historical record in the thirteenth century, although it is known to have existed in the north of Scotland for some time before this date.

Strathspey was its main territory, and the clan rallied to the patriotic cause of both William Wallace and the great warrior king Robert the Bruce.

Speyside is the home of the Clan Grant and they have been settled there since about the 13th century. Early chiefs of this clan held office as Sheriffs of Inverness and by virtue of this high office had great influence upon neighbouring territories.

There are several important branches of the Clan, including that of Glenmoriston which dates from the 16th century. The Grants participated in battle in support of King and Government, but during the Jacobite Rebellions of 1715 and 1745 they did not support the exiled house of Stewart.

The Grants of Glenmoriston, however, fought for the Jacobite cause on both occasions.

Badge * Pine.

DNA evidence established in 2007 has now conclusively vindicated the Grant Seannachies of the past who were unanimous that the original Grant Chiefs were of Viking stock.

The Chiefs ancestral lines go back to Hakon the Mighty, protector of Norway (970-995), Grig, (Gregory the Great) Regent of Scotland (878-889), Heming the Great, King of Denmark (fl.810) and Alfred the Great of Wessex!

Our patriarch, Olav Hemingsson came North with Malcolm III around 1057. The Clans plant badge, the Seedling Scots Pine, fructed proper, echoes the Norse origins of the first Chiefly line.

The Crowns on the Chiefs Arms represent the Spirit of Victory. In the tinctures (the colours), the vassalage to Malcolm is acknowledged.
