Hello and welcome to the Clan Ramsay Europe page.
Our Clan is part of the ancient clans of Scotland … Its approximate foundation dates back to 1140, when David I gave Lothian lands (the part just under Edinburgh.) to Simundus of Ramesia. Thus he was able to acquire the lands of Dalhousie where the Clan settled.
Today the Clan still exists. It has many Clansmen located in the following countries:
- United States of America
- Canada and Nova-Scotia
The Scots were great travelers, so they established colonies in different countries. Among them were Ramsay.
The Clan has representatives in these countries as well as in the following countries:
- Norway and Nordics
- France and Switzerland
This page aims to introduce you to the Clan and its various activities both in Europe and around the world. If you wish to join us, do not hesitate to contact us via the “contact us” tab, located at the top of the screen.
We are family…
Like all Scottish clans, Ramsay is a diaspora spread around the world. The Scots have been navigators and they have worn the colors of their tartans well beyond the lands of Europe, the United States, Finland, Canada and Australia.
The Clan is run by several associations that are its constituent; the association on which Europe depends is the Clan Ramsay European Society. Regularly, the Clan Chief comes to meet the clan members, those of the association.
The Clan first established itself in France in autumn 2015; it then spread to Luxembourg as well as Belgium. Its European branch speaks with one voice and proudly wears its colors and tartans and has set itself the goal of participating in the largest number of Europe-Scottish events.
This site aims to introduce you to the Ramsay Clan, its life, its history and the events in which it participates…
