Clark Clan

Now a common name across Scotland, Clark first emerged as a surname in the 15th century and is derived from the Latin, ‘Clericus’, meaning ‘a person in holy orders’, a scholar or a scribe.

For this reason, the name would not be associated with one particular Scottish clan but instead with multiple due to its ubiquitous nature. According to our records, there are five main clans that the Clarks could claim to be a sept of – MacGregor, Chattan, Cameron, MacIntosh and MacPherson.

One particular branch of the Clark family to have major success and influence in Scotland were the Clerks of Penicuik who would acquire lands in Midlothian in 1679 and build the stunning Penicuik House. The House would suffer a terrible fire in 1899 which gutted the interior of the building, however, its stunning exterior would remain standing and it would be fully restored a century later in 2014.
