Clan Troup History:
The lands of Troup lie in Banffshire, but there are also records of lands of a John of Trowpe holding lands in Ayrshire in 1370. Whether he was a member of the same family is open to debate as the seal attached to his homage is quite different from that of the Troup arms recorded in the Lyon register. Under no debate however, is the fact that the family is most prominent in Banffshire and around Aberdeen, with Hamelin de Troupe prebendary of Aberdeen Cathedral in 1332, and Normand Trupt a burgess of Aberdeen from 1611. It is thought that the family of Troup of that Ilk came to an end when an heiress married into the Keith family. The lands of Troup were later sold to Major Alexander Garden, a Scottish soldier in the service of the Swedish Crown in about 1654. The Troups of Dunbennan can trace their decent from John Troup of Huntly who lived during the mid-eighteenth century. Francis Troup of Dunbennan, his direct descendant, was a renowned engineer and architect who exhibited in the Royal Academy during the 1930's.

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.
