Brief Clan History

Also known as Irving, two separate branches of the clan flourished in both the lowlands and north of Scotland for centuries. In Aberdeenshire, the Irvines of Drum trace a descent from the Irvings of Bonshaw, in Dumfriesshire, and it was in the south-west of Scotland during the thirteenth century Wars of Independence with England that the clan provided valuable support for both William Wallace and Robert the Bruce.

The actual name Irvine is an Old English personal name. But the origin of the surname is territorial, from Irving, an old parish in Dumfriesshire (though the families of this part prefer the spelling Irvine).

There is another parish in Ayrshire of the same name, which undoubtedly produced some families of Irvine. The well-known Aberdeenshire family of Irvine of Drum descends from William de Irvine who obtained the free barony of Drum in 1324. Sir Alexander of Drum fell at Harlaw, in 1411.

In 1587, an Act of Parliament recognised the Irvings of Boneshaw as chief family of the name. There have been many members of the family distinguished in every walk of life.

In the arts, Washington Irving, the famous American author, was son of an Orkney man, and one of the finest actors of modern times was Sir Henry Irving.
