DUNLOP CLAN CREST

The Scottish surname Dunlop is an habitational name that originated in the village of Dunlop in Ayrshire, south west of Glasgow and north east of Kilmarnock.  The name, Dunlop, comes from the Gaelic Dun-Laib meaning ‘Fort of the bend’ and describes the ancient hill fort that is encircled by an arm of the Glazert Burn, which also circles the village of Dunlop. The first recorded use of the name of Dunlop is in the 13th century, when a document was witnessed by Dom. Willemus de Dunlop in 1260.  Dunlops were displaced by the feudal system introduced by King Malcolm, who annexed the Kingdom of Strathclyde.  His successor, King David, granted Cunninghame, the area in which Dunlop lies, to De Moreville.  His vassal, Dom Godfrey de Ross, was given the fortress on Dunlop hill.  The then current Dunlop of Dunlop was appointed Huntsman and given land where he built ‘Huntshall’ the seat of the Dunlop Clan.
