We are ‘The Children of Arthur’. We are the descendants of the legendary ‘King’ Arthur. We were Clan Chiefs and warriors. We were farmers and armourers, sailors and fishermen, hunters, lawyers, woodsmen, weavers, and wanderers.
The Lochaber ‘children’ invented the iconic Lochaber Axe, the Islay ‘children’ were the first to manufacture golf clubs, and the Skye ‘children’ taught the world to pipe.
We have been presidents, generals, astronauts, boxers, actors, musicians, teachers and more . . .
Who we will be tomorrow is up to you . . .
Join us and find out who you could be . . .
Clan Arthur, is one of the oldest clans in Scotland. Today the Clan is a growing organization with membership throughout the world. Its most active objectives are to extend the links of kinship and friendship between MacArthurs wherever they may be and to provide a focal point for all members of the Clan and, indeed interested visitors who wish to learn more of our past. The Clan promotes and encourages research into Clan Arthur and the publication of information pertaining to it’s history, traditions and genealogy.
Clan Arthur welcomes:
- Any person bearing the name MacArthur in any spelling variation.
- Any person who is married to MacArthur or descendent of a MacArthur.
- Any person who can claim descent from a MacArthur.
- Any person from one of our former septs, who feels a strong connection to Clan Arthur.
We extend a very warm welcome to all our members: continuing, renewing, and brand new. We hope that you will benefit from the fellowship which the Clan has to offer while, at the same time, gaining satisfaction from the part which you are playing in the furtherance of the Clan’s objectives.
