Origins Available: German, Scottish


The Scottish Drummond surname comes from the Gaelic word "drumainn," which means "a ridge," and is a habitational name derived from the name of any of the several various places so named; and Annabella Drummond ( c. 13501401), Queen Consort of Scotland as the wife of Robert III of Scotland.

Drummond Early Origins



The surname Drummond was first found in Perthshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Pheairt) former county in the present day Council Area of Perth and Kinross, located in central Scotland. There is also an early reference to the Clan in the district of Lennox when Gilbert de Drummyn, who was chaplain to Alwyn, Earl of Levenax, was witness to a charter by that Earl around 1199. Malcolm de Drummond witnessed several charters by Maldouen, the third Earl of Levenax, between 1225 and 1270. The family seat was at Stobhall, Perthshire. This distinguished family is said to be descended anciently from a Prince Andreas, youngest son of the King of Hungary, and came into Scotland in the train of Queen Margaret. The Drummonds were granted the lands of Drymen. The first of the line being Sir Malcolm of Drymen. By the year 1225 Iaian, Chief of the Clan had acquired Inch Mahone in Lake Monteith. Malcolm Drummond is credited with much of the Scottish success at Bannockburn in 1314.

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Gang warily
Motto Translation: Go carefully.
