Clan Arnott History:
The Arnott Name derives from the lands of the same name in the praish of Portmaok in Kinross-shire. The lands were possessed by Michael de Arnoth in 1284, the family are also believed to have held lands in Fife, and Michael de Arnoth said to have escorted Duncan, the Earl of fife, as ambassador to England in 1340. David Arnott, who was Archdeacon of Lothian in 1502, was later made Bishop of Galloway. Michael Arnott of that Ilk was made a baronet in 1629 by Charles I, this baronetcy lasted for five generations until the sixth baronet died without any heirs, the previous generations had enjoyed distinguished miliatry careers. The other major family lines are Arnott of Balcormo, Balkaithie, Eastrynd and Woodmiln. Hugo Arnott, of the Balcormo line was known in Edinburgh as a lawyer and historian, and he appeared as a major character in Kay's 'Edinburgh Portraits', following publication, in 1785, of a text on renoun criminal trials in Scotland.

What is a Sept
In Scotland, a sept is often a family that is absorbed into a larger Scottish clan for mutual benefit. For example, the Burns family sept was absorbed into the Clan Campbell. The Burns family, being very small and of questionable heritage, gained legitimacy and protection; the Campbell clan absorbed a potential rival for British affection in Scotland. Each Scottish clan typically has a number of septs, each with its own surname. Septs have rights to wear clan tartans although they often have tartans of their own.
