There is controversery over many of the Clans.
However, in this case of the Clan Galloway, there
is a couple of pretty significant points.
A: The Lord Lyon has accepted the Clan Galloway
B: The staff at Rootsweb and I agreed to accept the
definitions at the Great Hall of Clans as being the
guidelines for us to create message boards and
mailing list. So for our situation the Clan exists.
Galloway is basically a lowland family. The
Clan system was really originally established to
maintain some kind of order in the Scottish Highlands.
So there are some that say that no lowland family
can be a Clan. And then the brawl begins :-)
