As people know I am researching Clan Gunn history. I have two aims - firstly to try and find the academic base of such history and secondly to disprove the myths which many currently accept as real Clan Gunn history.
Given the above I thought I'd share the following -
There is no reference to the Gunns in the public records until 1647 when they appear on the scene as covenanters.
Page 124, 'Northern Scotland' Volumes 7-9, Centre for Scottish Studies, University of Aberdeen, 1986.
If true then the implication is obvious; Gunn history began in 1647.
