Hi Terry. Just type Clan Wallace into your search engine You will find tons of info. As far as I know you were not excepeted in a CLAN you were born into it. There are 6 branches of CLAN Wallce. Do you have your Wallace's ancestors? I have a whole slew of Wallace ancestors all from Ayr, Scotland. I also noticed your entries for POWERS. Did any of Powers come from Vermont? You can see what I have on both my Wallace's and Powers family at my website. tribalpages.com User ID: romonap. You will find a lot of duplication of first names in your search of Wallace's. The Scotish naming by birth order can be confusing. We hired Des Garrity in Scotland to help us sort it out. He is great! What help is my ancestors lived long lives so they were easy to find. Hope any of this has been of some help. Just reading on Clan Wallace will be hours of enjoyable reading. Proud to be Clan Wallace! Romona Powers-Perkins

In Rev. Charles Rogers 1889 publication THE BOOK OF WALLACE, he cited 50 different Wallace families in different parishes and shires within Scotland and one in Northrn Ireland, and he had another included a section on Wallaces abroad which I haven't read yet. I suspect there are more families today, but aren't we all of one original clan? My understanding is that there were no septs in Scotland. If I'm incorrect, please someone enlighten me.

Hi Robert Oh now I have to go searching I found the 6 branches of Clan Wallace but when you said there are no septs it threw me as I thought there were. As in my gr-gr-gr- grandmother Mary Gregg. I was under the assumption that her Gregg's were a sept of Clan McGregor. I do believe there are septs Ok I go play in Scotland TaTa

I just googled!!! Type in septs+clans+scotland. The very first listing..click on it.There are many many septs for the clans listed at electricscotland!!! I love reading all the stories about castles, the different clans,etc. Clan Wallace has one septs...Wallis. I am so glad that you poised this question. I knew that because of my greatgrandfather Samuel Grieg Wallace that I am Clan Wallace, his mother my grt-grt grandmother Mary Grieg that I am also Clan McGregor. Mary Greig married Robert Wallace. Robert Wallace's mother was Jean Daziel d/o Andrew Dalziel and Jean Findlay. I just found that Findlay is a sept Clan Farquharson!!!! My paternal greatgrandmother was Lydia Kinnieson.....Clan McFarlane!! Think that makes me a whole lot of Scottish!!!!!
