Clan Armstrong

Dumfries & Galloway

The Armstrongs are a ‘heidless clan’. The last chief, a Laird of Mangerton was hanged in 1611, yet they have populated the world and their spirit lives on. ‘I Remain Unvanquished’ is their hopeful motto. Legend has it the Armstrongs got the name after a man rescued a fallen king in battle and raised him back onto his horse. The Armstrong crest features an arm grasping a leg in armour. From the 13th century, Armstrongs settled in the Borderlands between England and Scotland, becoming the most feared family on the divide.
