The Craig Clan

Clan Motto: J’AI BONNE ESPERANCE
Translation: I HAVE GOOD HOPE

This name has a local origin, being taken from any crag, or (in Scots) craig, near which a man might have his dwelling. In the 15th century, no less than three families claimed to be of that Ilke. From William the Lions reign onwards the name occurs in old records and in the 15th and 16th centuries it is particularly common in the Edinburgh district. There were also Craigs in Aberdeenshire as well as in Berwick and St. Andrews.
