Clan Chief
Currently Vacant*

* The Lord Lyon recognizes the position of Chief of the Names and Arms. This designation is typically seen as the requirement to be a Clan Chief.   The Sir James Baird of Auchmedden registered as Chief of the Name and Arms in 1672. To learn more about the process please see the Heraldry section. His last known heir, using the Baird surname, to use the undifferenced Arms based on historical documents was John Baird of Walham Green, the son of William Baird, 7th of Auchmedden. To learn more about this, please see the members section.
