The Arms of Duncan Alastair Graham Cameron, MBA, MA, BA, FSA Scot

Duncan Cameron is involved with the Clan Cameron Association and currently serves as Commissioner for the Clan Cameron Association Scotland (UK & Europe).

Having been at the presentation of the Association's arms by Lyon Clerk, Mrs Elizabeth Roads and following a conversation with her, the decision to apply for personal arms ensued.

The choice of arms has particular meaning for the armiger. The basis of the shield being the Cameron arms which is differenced by a bend on which there are two Aberdeen scythes, representing the family's crofting past. Between the scythes a book represents an academic career.

Further symbolism in the arms comes from the flames in the crest alluding to Donald Cameron's 25years service in the Birmingham Fire Brigade, in addition the book placed on the bend alludes to the armiger's maternal grandfather and mother being involved in bookbinding. The Azure bend has a symbolism of a brook, as the armigers mother's maiden name was Brookes.

The crest of oak leaves encircling flames represents hospitality, in which industry the armiger was professionally involved. Oak is also the Clan plant badge.

The Armiger was born in Dufftown Banffshire in 1951 to Donald Cameron born 12 June 1924 in Cluny and Joyce Frances Brookes born 4th June 1924 married, 21st March 1944 in Sauchen.

Mr Cameron's grandfather John Cameron born 6th June 1895 in Cluny married Agnes Reid Lawrie 19th November 1919 in Cluny. His Father was Alexander Cameron born 28th December 1862 in Kilmonivaig, married Mary Ann Middleton 23rd August 1893 in Kemnay.

The Armiger's GG grandfather was Hugh Cameron who married Catherine Anne Stewart on 8th February 1856 in Auchtergaven. Hugh Cameron's Father was Alexander Cameron who married Catherine McPhee 26th July 1814 at Camisky, Kilmonivaig. It is likely that Alexander's Cameron's Father was John Cameron who died at Camisky Kilmonivaig on 17th February 1826 aged 74years. He is buried in plot 144 next to Hugh in the old Kilmallie churchyard at Corpach.

Duncan Cameron has an exact 25 marker DNA match with Denis Cameron in New Zealand, who has a family tree through the Camerons of Camisky and Strone to the Gentle Lochiel.
