Clan Davidson Events in 2017
Clan Davidson crosses the Scottish Border to Northumberland,
September 2017

This year for the first time, Clan Davidson crossed the Scottish Border to Northumberland, an area which has many Davidson family history connections. Our annual Gathering was held in Hexham, an attractive small town in Border reivers country. Clan members travelled from Poland, Germany and South Africa to join with members from Scotland and England for a busy and sociable weekend.

Our weekend began with an informal meal on Friday evening, providing the opportunity to meet new Clan members and socialise with old friends. A quiz competition followed, with serious rivalry between the table teams (amid cries of no Googling!), and much fun was had by all.

On Saturday morning, a local historian gave an illustrated talk about the history of the Hexham area. In the afternoon at our Annual Meeting, our Clan Pipe-Major played a specially composed lament for members who have died during the past year, and members gathered for the presentation of a donation cheque from Clan Davidson to local charity Tyndale Hospice at Home.

After refreshments, the historical links of many Davidson and Davison families with the Northumberland, Durham and Cumbria regions were demonstrated by the Clan Genealogist and Historical Researcher, whose presentation included many examples from his extensive picture archive of Davidson people, places, and artefacts. Our formal Clan dinner on Saturday evening provided good food, good company and good entertainment from local musicians.

International Clan Davidson Gathering, Kentucky, USA
June 2017
International Gathering, Kentucky USA
This long awaited event, two years in the planning, took place in June 2017 among the softly rolling hills of south central Kentucky, in conjunction with the Glasgow Highland Games. Chief of the Clan Davidson, Grant Guthrie Davidson, was Chief of the Games and with his wife Brenda was Guest of Honour at the event.

Dave Chagnon, the Sennachie of the Clan Davidson Society of North America was the driving force behind this major event, in which over 250 enthusiastic Clansmen and Clanswomen took part.

Inverness Highland Games, July 2017
As we have done for many years, the Clan Davidson Association took a stand in the Clans tent at the Inverness Highland Games. Some twenty different clans and local societies had stands inside the tent, which is organised by the Association of Highland Clans & Societies. Many visitors to the games from overseas took a break from the games activities to visit the stands in the tent and find out more about Scottish family history from clan representatives.
