Tradition states that a Baird rescued King William the Lion from being savaged by a wild boar and was rewarded with extensive grants of lands the killing of a wild boar also bearing similarities to the origin of Clan Campbell. The first record of the name occurs around 1202-28 when Henry de Barde witnessed a charter by Thomas de Haya to the House of Soltre. Later in 1296 it is stated that Fergus Debard, John Bard, and Robert Bard, who swore submission to Edward I of England, were from the Kyp branch of the family.
A charter was granted to Richard Baird of Meikle and Little Kyp in Lanarkshire in the 13th century and King Robert the Bruce granted the barony of Cambusnethan to a Robert Baird. This family of Cambusnethan spread to Banffshire and later to Auchmeddan in Aberdeenshire. George Baird of Auchmeddan married the niece of the Earl Marischal and the family increased in importance, and supplied a long line of sheriffs to that county.
There is a curious prophecy about this family from Thomas the Rhymer which states that when the eagles who nested in the craigs at Auchmeddan disappeared the estate would pass from the Baird family. This indeed came true when the estate was bought by the Earl of Aberdeen, however the eagles returned when the Earl’s heir married General Baird’s sister, but disappeared again when the estate passed to the Gordons.
General Sir David Baird was noted for his exploits in India and in the expedition to recapture the Cape of Good Hope from the Dutch in 1807. He lost an arm at the battle of Corunna in 1809 but assumed command of the army. Before he died in 1829 he had received many honours for his bravery. James Baird of Blyth was created Baron Deveron by Charles I but he died before the patent passed the Great Seal. His second son was created Sir Robert Baird of Saughton Hall and his eldest son, Lord Newbyth, was a Lord of Justiciary. John Logie Baird, the television pioneer was born in Helensburgh in 1888.
