Yester History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Early Origins of the Yester family


The surname Yester was first found in Lothian, 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. Allegiances were important to Scottish middle age survival. Later they held a family seat at Yester.
