Early Origins of the MacClam family


The surname MacClam was first found in Northumberland, where they were Lords of the manor of West Denton. The earliest record of this name in Scotland appears to be of Adam Lamb of Sympering, who witnessed a charter of lands in Grayden in c. 1288. Adam Lamb and Lambe fiz Austyn de Nibreim (Austin Lamb) both rendered homage in 1296 to King Edward I of England on his brief conquest of Scotland. Thomas Lambe was a tenant in Dumfriesshire in 1376. John Lambe of Scotland received twenty pounds from Richard II of England for killing Oweyn of Wales, "the King's enemy in France." Duncan Lam held a tenement in Edinburgh in 1392. A master Archibald Lame taught young monks at the Abbey of Arbroath in 1486. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The MacClam Motto

The MacClam 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: Palma non sine pulvere
Motto Translation: The palm is not obtained without labour.
