Brief Clan History

In old Latin documents the term Walensis is used to designate the Welsh, but in Scotland is more commonly used as a native name meaning a Strathclyde Briton and not, as is often thought, a Welshman coming in the train of the Norman French. It is from this Walensis that the name Wallace is derived.

The name of the clan Wallace is first found in records in the twelfth century as holding extensive lands around Ayrshire and Renfrewshire. Richard Walensis of Riccarton is hailed as the founder of the Wallace family.

The motto of the Wallace clan is Pro Libertate - for liberty and nomember of the family encompasses that ideal more than the great Scottish patriot, Sir William Wallace of Elderslie.

The Wallace clan had refused to submit to Edward I, and William led his family and fellow patriots in what was to be one of the earliest guerrilla campaigns in military history.

His military genius made him hated and feared by Edward I and he was known traditionally as "Guardian of Scotland". He was ultimately betrayed to the English and executed with great brutality.
