Gow Clan

Derived from the Gaelic word ‘gobha’ meaning blacksmith, the name Gow would become ubiquitous around Scotland as almost every clan would require a blacksmith to aid with the creation of weapons and armour.

The clan with which the Gow surname would come to be particularly associated with, however, would be the MacPhersons. This association would begin in 1396 when Henry Wynd, “the crooked smith”, would join the fighting alongside the Macphersons at the Battle of the North Inch of Perth where the Macphersons themselves were fighting as part of the larger Chattan confederation and it is said that the introduction of Wynd, “contributed greatly to the success of his side .”
