The Clan Gregor Society was instituted in 1822 and is one of the oldest clan societies. In its early days it was managed by a committee of Edinburgh and Glasgow professional men, all surnamed MacGregor or McGregor. Their object was to extend “to the Poor of the Clan the benefits of a sound and Christian education.” To this worthy end, large sums were subscribed and distributed, and this benevolent work contributed greatly to the rising fortunes of the clan throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries.
Today, the Society is a growing organisation with membership throughout the world. It’s most active objectives are to extend the links of kinship and friendship between MacGregors, wherever they may be, and to provide a focal point for all members of the Clan and, indeed, any interested visitors who wish to learn more of our noble past.
In addition to the names Gregor and MacGregor (various spellings), more than one hundred names are recognised as forming part of Clan Gregor.
Membership in the Clan Gregor Society is open to all who regard themselves as MacGregors, and to all others as associate or honorary members, in accordance with the Society’s rules.
