Lord Lyon Morrow Presents the Grant of Arms as Chief of Clan Gunn to Iain Gunn of Gunn
Iain Alexander Gunn
Clan Gunn Chief
On the 25th September 2015 Lord Lyon Morrow issued the following interlocutor in the Petition of Iain Alexander Gunn of Banniskirk Chief of the Clan Gunn of date 24 July 2015:
“Edinburgh, 25 September 2015. The Lord Lyon King of Arms, having considered the foregoing petition, Recognizes the Petitioner as Representer of the House and Family of Gunn, Chief of the Clan Gunn, and that he is entitled to the additaments of Chief to his Ensigns Armorial, the form of such Ensigns Armorial to be determined by His Lordship at a later date.”
This historic ruling, therefore, establishes a fully recognized Chief of Clan Gunn for the first time since 1785 – a truly historic event.
230 years after the death of the last fully recognized chief of the Clan, Morrison Gunn in 1785, Clan Gunn finally has a recognized Chief.
