The Henderson Clan

Clan Motto: SOLA VIRTUS NOBILITAT
Translation: VIRTUE ALONE ENNOBLES

In the 14th and 15th centuries this name was found in various parts of Scotland. The Hendersons of Glencoe claim to have occupied that glen before the advent of the MacDonalds, and further allege that the ancestress of the MacDonalds was the daughter of the Hendersons chief. In the north the Hendersons are septs of clan Gunn and claim to be descended from Henry, the son of George Gunn the famous "crowner" of the 15th century. From the Hendersons of Fordell in Angus descended the noted divine, William Henderson (1583-1646). In the Highlands the name is often rendered as MacKendrick from the Gaelic MacEanruig meaning "son of Henry". Badge - Cotton Grass
