Brief Clan History

The name derives from a Norse word meaning law man, although the roots of the clan are believed to lie in Ireland. Their homeland was Cowal, but in the seventeenth century the clan was all but annihilated by Campbells of Argyll for its support of the Royalist cause.

In earlier times the Lamonts possessed considerable lands in Argyllshire, but through the encroachment of other clans their territory was reduced to Cowal.

The early chiefs were known as Lamont of Inveryne. John Lamont was, in 1539, knighted and his lands made into the Barony of Inveryne. Toward Castle, the old seat of the chiefs, was destroyed by the Campbells and, in 1646, 300 Lamonts were massacred.

Thereafter Ard Lamont became the home of the chiefs. The Lamonts were called Clan ic Fhearchair (MacKeracher) after their first known chief Ferchar, who was alive about 1200.

Ferchars grandson, Laumun, held a judicial position as law man and his office became the surname of his clan.

Badge * Crab Apple Tree.

The clan did not take part in the Jacobite Risings. In the 19th century the clan chief emigrated to Australia, where the present chief of the clan lives. The clan lives today as the Clan Lamont Society, which was formed in 1895.

The society meets once a year and accepts membership from anyone bearing the surname Lamont or any of the clans associated names.
