RETURN TO HOME PAGE
The ancestral home of the Buchanans is on the eastern shore of
Loch Lomond in what is now Stirlingshire. Ancient histories place
ancestors of the Buchanans on those lands as early as 1019 A.D.
In the reign of David II (1329-1371), Maurice of Buchquhanane
had, from Lennox, a charter confirming him in the lands of that
name, and this the King reconfirmed in 1370.
The name Buchanan is a place name taken from those lands.
