Ge­neal­o­gist Hugh Pes­kett said yes­ter­day: “As a clans­man of the Clan Buchanan, it was fas­ci­nat­ing to delve into the history and an­ces­try of one of the old­est clans in Scot­land.

“Trac­ing hun­dreds of years of lin­eage and un­pack­ing the se­crets of the past is no mean feat.

“This is a his­toric mo­ment for Clan Buchanan and I am truly priv­i­leged to have played my part.

“I be­lieve that my grand­mother would be in­cred­i­bly proud of what we have achieved.”

While the clan can be traced back to 1010 AD in Scot­land, it now has sev­eral mil­lion mem­bers across the world.

As well as those with the sur­name Buchanan, clans­men and women also in­clude those with sur­names such as Bo­han­non, Cole­man, Col­man, Cor­mack, De­war, Dove, Dow, Gibb, Gib­bon, Gibb, Gib­son, Gilbert, Gil­bert­son, Harper, Mas­ters, Master­son, Mor­ris, Mor­ri­son, Richard­son, Rush, Rusk, Wal­ter, Wal­ters, Was­son, Wa­ters, Wat­son, Watt, Wat­ters and Weir.
