History of Clan Lamont
The Lamonts descend from the Scots who crossed the sea from Ireland. Their original name in Ireland meant "e;law-giver"e;. They founded the Kingdom of Dalriada. Their territory was in Cowal once stretching to Bute and Arran. The Chief was called Fearchar. He had two sons called Duncan and Malcolm, they granted lands to the Monks of Paisly.

The name Lamont came from the name of Malcom's son called Ladman. Malcolm and his brother Duncan established their seats as Chiefs at the Castle Toward and the Castle Ascog.
References to Lamonts were recorded in 1116.

What is a sept?
In Scotland, a sept is 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 and display the clan crest (badge at the top of this page) although they often have tartans of their own.
