Clan or Society

What's the Difference? 


A Clan Society is not a Clan. If you have the blood of Arthur in your veins, you're a member of the clan. The Clan MacArthur Society was organized prior to the reestablishment in 1991 of Clan Arthur in Scotland.  In August, 2002, Lord Lyon, King of Arms granted then Commander James E. M. MacArthur of that Ilk, FSA Scot, from Edinburgh, Scotland the petition for arms of chief of clan arthur. Jim organised a worldwide society and nobly stood as chief until his death. His son, John Alexander MacArthur of that Ilk, FSA Scot resumed the title of chief in June, 2004.
