'Scotland and Beyond; the Families of Donald Gunn (Tormsdale) and John Gunn (Dalnaha, Strathmore and Braehour'
I have placed a copy of 'Scotland and Beyond; the Families of Donald Gunn (Tormsdale) and John Gunn (Dalnaha, Strathmore and Braehour)' in the State Library of Victoria (Melbourne, Australia). Further copies are available at the National Library of Scotland, Timespan Museum Helmsdale and the Highland Archive Centre in Inverness.
The book includes much discussion of the Braehour line which is one of the many traditional 'Clan Gunn Chief' lines of descent and includes much of Canadian interest; for example the Hon. Donald Gunn 1797-1878 was a 'Braehour' Manitoba politician and he had many descendants. For his biography see - http://clangunn.weebly.com/hon-donald-gunn-canada-1797-1878.html.
I note Mr Iain Gunn of Banniskirk used his Braehour descent as a key part of his early 1980s claim to be 'Chief of the Clan Gunn'.
I record the death of my father Jack Alexander Gunn (December 1921- February 2016).
Jack first petitioned to be ‘Chief of the Clan Gunn’ in the early 1960s and continued to do so until the early 1990s when, with increasing age, he became less interested in the process. For more on the Braehour line which was the basis of this claim see http://clangunn.weebly.com/clan-gunn-chief---braehour-line.html.
Jack was very pleased to learn in 2015 that, following new research, he was the most senior person of the most senior family to have always held the surname Gunn from Gunn Coroner (often wrongly called George Gunn Crowner) which is the traditional ‘Clan Gunn Chief’ line.

Much loved; much missed.
