Clan Ewing in Search of a Chief

This year, Clan Ewing will appoint its first chief in almost 250 years. 

Since the last Family Convention in 2014, Clan Ewing has been led by its commander, John Thor Ewing, and it has grown in strength and recognition.  But the institution of commander can only be an interim measure.  The time has now come to appoint a chief.

The last known Chief of Clan Ewing was Robert Ewing of Craigtoun, who is believed to have died in 1776.  Since then, the line of descent has been lost, and it has not been possible to discover the heir to the chiefship by right of inheritance.  So we’ve reached an impasse. 

The Ewing Family Association is organising a new Family Convention to be held later this year when, unless a hereditary claimant can be securely established, a new chief will be appointed by the clan.  If you cannot attend the Family Convention in person, there will also be an opportunity for eligible clansfolk to vote in advance.  Among the candidates will be John Thor Ewing, current Commander of Clan Ewing.  If you think you have a legitimate claim to be chief of this historic clan, or if you wish to stand for election as chief, Clan Ewing wants to hear from you now—straight away, before it’s too late!

The Ewing Family Convention will be held on 21st September 2024 at Strathleven House, West Dunbartonshire, Scotland, UK, and simultaneously at the Crowne Plaza St Louis Airport Hotel, Bridgeton, Missouri, USA, when, unless a claim can be proven through hereditary right, the clan will appoint its choice of chief—the first for nearly two-and-a-half centuries.  The meeting will be held under the supervision of George Way of Plean, Carrick Pursuivant and former Procurator Fiscal of the Court of the Lord Lyon.
