Clan Wallace Membership    

The Clan Wallace Society represents all Scots of any clan and all others who wish they were Scots.

The Society has over 1600 members in the United States, Canada, Scotland, England and as far away as Hong Kong and Australia. The Society was founded and chartered in Texas in 1966. The purpose of the society is educational with particular reference to the history of Scotland, its public figures, such as Sir William Wallace, the national hero of Scotland who suffered martyrdom for his country in 1305, its Clans and the heritage and achievements of those claiming Scottish descent. The current Chief of Clan Wallace is Ian Francis Wallace of that ILK, 35th Chief of the Clan and Name of Wallace and Honorary President of the Society.

The Clan Wallace Society is the only organization recognized by the Chief of Clan Wallace and the Lord Lyon Court as representing the interests of the Chief, the Clan, as a whole, and the Society. Any other groups and claims may be misleading and, possibly, illegal in Scotland. We are not affiliated in any way with any political organization or philosophy in the United States or elsewhere in the world. We are not interested in espousing any political causes or positions and will not respond to requests for support either financial or otherwise. Please don't include us in any literature or World Wide Web links that do not concern Scottish heritage, festivals and games.
