Welcome to the Clan Carruthers Society Webpage
(Please feel free to peruse our many blog posts on the site, regarding the Clan and family of Carruthers)
Our society was the brainchild of Dr George Carruthers who started bringing the family together on the Facebook page ‘Clan Carruthets’ in 2007. We have gathered support of Carruthers from all over the world and this eventually led to its formation in January 2017.
The Society’s purpose, in part is to support the recognistion by the Lord Lyon in Edinburgh, the only person who has the legal authority to recognise through marticulation of our Chiefly Arms, a Chief of our Clan and Riding Family.
It is also there to evidence any claims being made and clarify any false information relating to our clan and family, thus ensuring we are presented in a positive and factual light.
A research group has also been set up to ensure our family genealogy database is accurate and proofed. This again rules out some of the current false information out there and will progressively offer a solid foundation for all those who are interested in their family tree, to work from.
Modern Accepted Varients of the name Carruthers although not complete: Caruthers, Carrothers, Carrithers, Carothers, Carrodus, Carruthers, Carrutherys, Carradice, Cardus, Crothers, Cruddace, Crowdace, Cridders, Credeur and many many more.
As a Riding family or Grayne we have lived, loved, fought and died in the border lands of the debatable lands of the Anglo Scottish Border since well before the Norman Invasion.
We have been Lairds, Barons, Knights, Chancellors, Generals, Plantation owners, Advisors to the Scottish Crown, Rustlers, Land Owners, Covenanters, Jacobites, Graynes, supporter of the Knights Templars and involved in the East India Company and the Raj for over three hundred of years. Our family now cover all corners of the earth, but remain united in their Scottish heritage, history, pride and pedigree.
All of our name and any derivation of the same, are welcome here.
Please support us in our quest to have a descendent of our chiefly line officially recognised as Chief through the auspices of the Lord Lyon in Edinburgh.
