about clan mcculloch clan society project

Clan Society Project

Clan McCulloch is an “armigerous clan is a Scottish clan, family or name which is registered with the Court of the Lord Lyon and once had a chief who bore undifferenced arms, but does not have a chief currently recognized as such by Lyon Court.” Just as many Scots have spread around the world as part of the “Scottish Diaspora” the McCullochs (of various spellings) are now found around the world, primarily in English speaking countries of North America and Australia.

As an initial step, the Clan McCulloch Clan Society has been formed in 2021. In the coming months we hope to expand the organization as described here.

Rediscovering Clan McCulloch


“The name McCulloch is one of the oldest in Galloway. It is of Celtic origin and indicates that the family of that name sprang from the early British inhabitants of that district. Naturally, a family of such antiquity can boast of a number of fanciful legends concerning its origin.” Thus begins Walter Jameson McCulloch’s “GALLOWAY FAMILIES OF McCULLOCH.”

It has been said that the name McCulloch is “Ultra memoriam hominium,” or from before human memory. According to SurnameDB: “The first known recording is that of Thomas Maculagh, given in the records of the proceedings of the government of Scotland as being “del counte de Wyggetone” in the year 1296. This was when he gave his allegiance to the government of John Balioll known as “The Interregnum” of 1296, it being overthrown by Robert, The Bruce, in 1306.”
