Pages of Richard Keen, Jr.

Clan Gunn

I belong to the Clan Gunn Society of North America and they now have a official site with information on how to join. Another great site is The Clan Gunn page with lots of links to other pages of Scottish nature. So if you are looking for information on another clan or more in-depth information then check out these sites.

Tracing back ones heritage is fun, rewarding, and never ending. As soon as you begin the quest of your heritage every piece of information will lead you to another question which leads you to more information. I am still trying to put together a family tree and with every step I take I find another piece to the puzzle. So in trying to help myself in this quest I made this page and in doing so I hope it helps others in finding the heritage

On this page you will find Clan Gunn’s Surnames, Motto, Badge, Tartans, and other links. I hope you enjoy this page as much as I did making it.

The norse word gunner means war. Living between Caithness and Sutherland, the Gunns were descended from the Norsemen, some think possibly from Olaf the Black himself.
