Our extensive collection of Davidson family trees, portraits and Heraldry
includes information and images from as early as the 15th century up to the present day.
Using this data and our access to many archives, we can give help and advice to Clan members on researching their family history.
Perhaps one of your ancestors was an early member of our Clan? - see our list of Clan Dhai Members, 1912
Clan Davidson, which has roots at least as far back as the 13th century, is believed to have originated in the valley of the Spey river
in the Scottish Highlands, between the Cairngorm mountains to the south and east and the Monadhliath mountains to the north and west.
The modern-day Scottish towns of Kingussie, Newtonmore and Aviemore are located in the heart of ancient Clan Davidson lands.
Clan Davidson is not an entity which has faded into the dust of past history....it is very much alive with clansmen and women worldwide.
Today, Clan Davidson has formal organisations not only in the United Kingdom, but also in the United States of America, Australia and New Zealand.

All the Clan Davidson organisations share allegiance to our Clan Chief, Alister Guthrie Davidson of Davidston,
and have the same motto Sapienter si sincere.
We share information and have formed many international friendships.
The Clan Davidson Association posts three Newsletters each year to its Members, together with
a copy of our annual journal, The Pheon
in which we publish a range of in-depth articles. Our illustrated book The Davidsons: The Clan, its history and its people
has a detailed section on Davidsons of Tulloch (the Chiefly line), sections on other Scottish Davidson families, and information about Davidson tartans, emblems and customs.
It is available from our Publications shop.
For more information about our book and a summary of the stories in our 2011 Pheon
, see Publications.
Our members gather for a weekend in Scotland each year to meet and socialise, both with new clansmen and women and with old friends.
We also occasionally host informal Clan gatherings in Northern Ireland.
We will be holding our 2012 Gathering in Elgin and would welcome visitors and new members. For more information, see Events this year.
