This year, 2016, marks the 450th anniversary of the first
recorded grant of arms in the Ewing name, and we are looking
forward to our first modern gathering on Scottish soil, which
will take place at Strathleven House on Saturday 6th August.
House is the earliest surviving palladian mansion in
Scotland and was once home to James Ewing of Strathleven
(1775-1853); it remained in Ewing ownership until
purchased by the Board of Trade in 1946.
In the course of the afternoon, we'll look at Ewing history and swap stories, and there'll be a talk by clan commander John Thor Ewing about his research into the clan's past. As our first UK gathering,
this is a fairly low key event, but it's a great opportunity to meet fellow clansfolk, to find out more about your clan, and to help set up an organisation for the future.
Children are welcome.
2:00pm Saturday 6th August 2016
Strathleven House, Dumbarton, G82 3PD
The provisional plan for the afternoon:
2:30 Talk (John Thor Ewing): What is Clan Ewing?
3:10 coffee & biscuits
3:30 Council - an informal discussion on all things Ewing, including a framework for the future.
