Remember coat of arms/ armorial bearings are given to *a* person...not a family, not everyone with that surname...one specific person.
So any coat of arms you find will have relevance to one person.

Clan Badges are representative of the family and those with that particular surname as well as all septs of that clan.

Chief Herald is Lord Lyon.
As a matter of fact in Scotland there are strict laws regarding foisting a coat of arms as your own if it is not (for good reason, if you go have a look it costs somewhere upwards of $8,000 to get a coat of arms *if* you are approved -many are not who apply- )

You can apply if you have an ancestor who once was granted arms for your own.

That wasn't very clear was it. If you have an ancestor who was granted a coat of arm/armorial bearings...you can apply to then have a new armorial bearing granted to you with your details. Ancestors may have had trees as he was a deer stalker on an estate where yours may have a fish representing being a mariner etc.

I have Clan MacLennan info if you want to see it. We also have the clan coat of arms as well.
Let me know if my email address is visible or not. I'd rather do this directly.

There is family history and information posted on the Clan MacLennan website. You can go to http://www.clanmaclennan-worldwide.com/usa/. From this website you can access Clan MacLennan information from the USA, Canada, Australia, and Scotland. My name is Eileen MacLennan Johnson and I am currently the Clan Secretary here in the USA.

Sorry not related that way. I married a Johnson. My MacLennan roots come from my great grandfather who came from Scotland.

In that case would that be anything to do with Dan McClennan who left Scotland for New Zealand, married Bridget Ellen Ryan, had a son Daniel Gladstone McClennan?
