The Gaelic word for “Clan” is children, but is best translated as “family.” Originally, each clan was made up of the descendants of one man and his children. Today, a Clan is a social group that comprises a number of families derived from, or accepted as being derived from, a common ancestor. Almost without exception, that core is accompanied by an added number of dependent and associated families who have either sought the protection of the clan at some point in history or have been tenants or vassals of its chief.
