“Cuimhnich air na daoine o’n d’thaining thu” – Remember the men from whom you are descended.
The chiefs of Clan Kincaid are said to be descended from several families including the ancient Earls of Lennox, the Galbraiths of Buthernock, the Grahames and also the Comyn Lords of Badenoch. The name Kincaid appears to have been of territorial origin. One explanation is that it comes from ceanncadha that is Scottish Gaelic for the steep place or pass. Another translation is that it might mean of the head of the rock. Yet another possibility is that it means the head of the battle, possibly referring to an achievement in the family history
One member of the Kincaid family distinguished himself by gallant conduct against the English forces of Edward I of England and in 1296 successfully recaptured Edinburgh Castle. The Laird of Kincaid then held the office of constable of Edinburgh Castle until about 1314. In reference to this honorable feat, during the reign of Robert the Bruce the castle was added to the Kincaid shield as an honorable augmentation to his armorial bearings.
During the Jacobite rising of 1715 the Kincaids supported the exiled Stuarts and following the rising David Kincaid left Scotland and settled in Virginia. During the Jacobite rising of 1745 four sons of Alexander Kincaid, who was Lord Provost of Edinburgh and the King's Printer, fought a rearguard action after the Battle of Culloden. They were taken prisoner but managed to escape, taking ship to America, and also settling in Virginia.
The principal line of Kincaids married into the Lennox family at the end of the eighteenth century. Over the next two centuries the two families were almost synonymous but the Kincaids have now re-established themselves as an independent family.
