My Clan, Not HMH

Origins of the clan

The Lamonts descend from the Scots who crossed the sea from Ireland. Their original name in Ireland meant "law-giver". They founded the Kingdom of Dál Riata. Their territory was in Cowal once stretching to Bute and Arran. The Chief was called Fearchar. He had two sons called Duncan and Malcolm, they granted lands to the Monks of Paisly.

The name Lamont came from the name of Malcolm's son called Ladman. Malcolm and his brother Duncan established their seats as Chiefs at the Castle Toward and the Castle Ascog.

References to Lamonts were recorded in 1116.

14th & 15th centuries

Clan Lamonts influence increased down through the years with alliances with some of the most powerful clans in Scotland. The Lamonts married into the family of the powerful Clan Macdonald, Lord of the Isles.

The Lamont's territory expended into the Isle of Bute although the clan remained firmly entrenched in Cowal. The Lamonts also settled in Fife, Galloway, and Ayrshire.

The Lamonts were also favoured by the Royal House of Stewart.


Civil War

In the 17th century during the English Civil War the Clan Lamont supported the Royalist cause for King Charles I.

The powerful Clan Campbell, neighbors of the Clan Lamont had steadily encroached the Lamont's lands. After the Campbells were defeated by James Graham the 1st Marquess of Montrose at the Battle of Inverlochy in 1645 the Lamonts took the opportunity to lay waste to the Campbell's territory.

However the following year in 1646 the Clan Campbell army invaded the Lamonts taking their Castles Toward and Ascog. Sir James Lamont surrendered after accepting fair terms for his people. However the Campbells then slaughtered over two hundred of Lamont's men, women and children. Elsewhere one tree was said to have carried thirty five bodies from its branches and another thirty six men were buried alive. The two Lamont castles were decimated and Sir James Lamont was thrown into a dungeon for five years. This became known as the Dunoon Massacre.

  Now That is just a brief overview of "my" Families clan. Naturally I have nothing to do with it. Though I think it would be awesome to look back down my family tree and see where we descended from. I'd rather meet an early ancestor of mine than Jesus or Ghandi. Neither of which do I have any interest in. One of them is make believe... and the Jesus was probably a fairytale too... haha, I'm just playing. But still, neither of those people interest me. Non-Violence never solved anything...
   The clan history I read back a long time ago, that right there is from Wikipedia, but there is allsorts online. The thing about it is, my name is Lamont, my families name is Lamont. My aunt whom I live with was originally called Campbell, which were enemies of ours apparently. And even more coincidental is the fact that my old-best friend was surnamed MacDonald. Both of the two playing some part in my history.
   "Ne Parcas Nec Spernas" Our family motto which translates to "Neither Spare Nor Dispose" Which I've no idea what it means, I've looked it up several times and found different ideas, but nothing definitive.
   So the song playing right now will be the last one from the Outrun games, and then I'll move on and up to better ones.All certainly to be from games. I love listening to the stuff I put up, and if you ever like a piece that was put up, you can download them from Imeem.com on my profile. Which should be pretty straight forward.
   I'm gon' go and get something to eat and then hit up the 360 for some Halo3 and COD. Nothing spectacular, but still, i'm content.

Have a nice day y'all

Interesting stuff, I know next to nothing about my families Scottish clan or really much of anything before my Great Great Great (Great?) Grandfather came to the U.S. in the early 20th century with his family (his wife sadly did not survive the voyage).

Can we hear the end theme from streets of rage 2? That's like my favourite midi of all time. You should write about something quite touching / heart warming with the blog it goes with lol. Can really stir emotions that piece!
