The Arms of Gavin George Duncan of Sketraw, ygr.

Duncan is one of the oldest names in Scotland dating back to the early Celtic Scots infiltration of Scotland from Ireland c500AD and the creation of the Kingdom of Dalriada in South West Scotland.  One of the first early records of the name was King Dunchad (Duncan) mac Conaing who co-ruled Dalriada with Conall II (c650 – 654AD). Other early accounts of the name are Dunchad (Duncan) the 11th Abbot of Iona c707 – 717AD; King Duncan I (c1034 – 1040AD); Duncan II (1093- 1094AD) and Donnchad in the 11c. Celtic Book of Deer. 

The first known record of a Duncan armiger was Duncane, Hague Roll 1592. Argent, a chevron Sable between two stars Gules and a hunting-horn Sable, stringed Gules.

Gavin George Duncan of Sketraw, ygr. uses the arms of his father debruised with a three point label to signify he is the eldest son of John Alexander Duncan of Sketraw (See entry No 0067)

Euan Michael Duncan is the second son of John A. Duncan of Sketraw and uses a crescent for differencing. (See entry No.0221)
