History of the UK Society

Map of Scotland

The first record of a Clan Grant Society was in 1890 in Glasgow. By 1897, there were Clan Grant Societies in Glasgow, Grantown-on-Spey and London. The societies in Glasgow and Grantown-on-Spey merged to form a joint society. It is also likely that there was an Edinburgh society at about the same time but that merged with the Glasgow one as well. The London society remained independent but both societies became dormant during or just after World War I.

Interest did not revive until 1951 when Lord MacPherson of Drumochter organised a March of the Clans in Edinburgh at the government`s behest. There was a society of about 100 active members between 1951 and 1955 but support dwindled again and the society became defunct.

In 1981, interest in a UK Clan Grant Society was revived by three people working independently, until the late Sir Patrick Grant of Grant, Lord Strathspey, the 32nd Clan Chief, was contacted by each of them and the nucleus of the present society was formed.

The founder members were the late David Grant-Blythe, who became the first secretary/treasurer; the late Nigel Grant from Grantown-on-Spey; and Robert Grant, a former secretary. Robert had attended the International Gathering of the Clans in Edinburgh and had been disappointed that Clan Grant had not been represented.
