Contrary to popular belief, not all who bear the name of a clan is blood related to the original chief of the clan. Clansmen did not have to be related to be part of a clan, and many were simply followers or tenants. When they adopted the use of surnames in the 16th and 17th centuries, many clansmen took on the chief’s surname in order to show loyalty or to gain benefits.
In the past, everyone who lived on the chief’s territory, or anyone that pledged allegiance to the chief made up a clan. Eventually, many clansmen adopted the clan chief’s surname. Chiefs had the right to add or remove people from the clan, even blood relatives. Nowadays, anyone with the chief’s surname is considered a member of the clan. In addition, those who offer allegiance to the chief may become a member, unless the chief rejects them.
