Brief Clan History

Clan Duff originated from the Royal Scoto-Pictish line, of which Queen Gruoch stood as its senior representative. She and her second husband, MacBeth, would be immortalised by William Shakespeare in literature.

Her son succeeded the throne but was murdered in 1058, whereby Malcolm Canmore won the throne. His son Aedh, married Margaret of Moray, the granddaughter of Owen Gruoch, and became both the Earl of Fife and the Abbott of Abernethy (the ancient Pictish capital).

He bore on his shield the red lion rampant becoming the undisputed premier subject of the kingdom.

After his death in 1128, the men of Moray made a few unsuccessful attempts to claim the throne whilst Clan Duff was to give its allegiances to Queen Margaret.

The male line of Earls failed in 1353 and passed to Robert Stewart, later Duke of Albany and Regent of Scotland. In 1425 the earldom passed to the crown and the clan lost their great rank.

A Fife title was to return with William Duff and the Earl of Fife and Viscount Madcap in 1759. Later Alexander, the sixth Earl of Fife, married the Princess Royal, HRH Louise (daughter of King Edward VII).

The direct line of the ancient house, continued in Wemyss whilst in the northern territories, families of Clan Duff emerged in historical record with no proof of royal descent.

In the first instance we recommend dry cleaning all wool products.

If you wish wash by hand or by machine please do not wring the item, or allow the item to float free in a washing machine. when using a machine always place your product in a pillow case so that it does not tangle or loose its shape.

By hand wash gently using luke warm water and when drying taking great care to ensure that the item is placed flat on a towel for it to dry. This way the product will keep its shape and its softness, and look as new as when first bought.
Always use a recommended wool detergent ie Woolite.
