Clan Strachan is a Scottish clan originating from Aberdeenshire.
The Strachans of Glenkindie have occupied Glenkindie Castle, (and later, Glenkindie House) far longer then their Strachan cousins occupied Thornton Castle. In fact, the last chief of Clan Strachan, Bart. Admiral Sir Richard John Strachan, RN never stepped foot inside Thornton Castle. Although the family retained the Barony of Thornton, the property itself had been sold (in 1687) some 140 years prior to his death in 1828. Sir Richard, his wife and children settled in London after he retired from the Royal Navy. At the age of sixty-seven, Sir Richard John Strachan died at his residence, in Bryanstone-square, London, after a short illness, on 3 February 1828. Sir Richard's death, with no male heir, marked the definitive end of a dynasty that had lasted nearly 500 years.
The original Chief of Clan Strachan were the 'de Strachan' barons, whose lands included much of what is now the Royal Deeside area of the Grampian Highlands. In 1296, the barons ‘de Strachan’ were important local nobles until this time, when they backed the Earls of Buchan and Comyn (to whom they were probably related) in support of King John Balliol against Robert the Bruce. This culminated in the Battle of Inverurie in 1308, by whom they were defeated by the Bruce and disinherited. The barony 'de Strachan' passed to Bruce’s Great Chamberlain, Sir Alexander Fraser.
Fifty years later, at around 1350, shortly after King Robert's son and successor, David II, had been defeated and captured by the English, 1341, at the battle of Neville's Cross six descendants of the former Baron de Strachan received grants of lands and baronetcies.
In Edinburgh, Scotland, 9 April 2014, twenty-one leading members of the Strachan family met at the Royal Scots Club to participate in an official meeting or “Family Convention.” The meeting was held under the supervision of the Court of the Lord Lyon. The purpose of this meeting was to recognize a Commander for Clan Strachan, who after serving five years would become the legally recognized hereditary Chief of the Name and Arms.
Shortly thereafter, the Reverend Canon Dr. Joseph Morrow, Lord Lyon King of Arms granted a warrant to Rob Strachan recognising him as Commander of Clan Strachan for a period of five years.
In 2019, another Family Convention will be held in Scotland to formalise Rob as the hereditary Chief of the Honourable Clan Strachan.
