The Barclay family and the Baird's have been connected for some time. In fact, the Ury Estate that is part of our Commander Richard's title was the Barclay estate until the mid 1800's. The Bairds and the Barclays are buried together at the Ury Houff. One of the modern Barclays, Humphrey, is a part of our work at the Ury Houff and at St. Drostan's Kirk at Aberdour, on the old Auchmedden Estate. He produced this film.
Humphrey Barkley has produced this amazing video about his ancestor David Barkley and an extraordinary event in his life.

It is our mission to bring the diasporic Clan Baird back together as a unified family, to support Scotland and Scottish culture, educate others about Scottish life, preserve and restore Clan Baird artifacts and sites in Scotland, protect all things Scottish, as well as encourage others to do the same.
