Early Origins of the Clynde family


The surname Clynde was first found in Sutherlandshire (Gaelic: Cataibh), a former county in northern Scotland, now part of the Council Area of Highland, where they held a family seat in their territories. The Pictish influence on Scottish history diminished after Kenneth Macalpine became King of all Scotland. But those east coast families still played an important role in government and were more accessible to Government than their western highland counterparts. Sir William of Clyne was the first recorded chief of the family about 1350 at Cathboll held from the Bishop of Moray. In the 15th century they became attached and gave allegiance to the Sutherland Chief, the Earl of Sutherland, who, by a later feud, killed many of the Clynes. Innes, the former Lord Lyon, now gives the family as a sept of the Sinclairs of Orkney.
