CAMERON Family History

This famous and ancient Scottish surname has two origins; firstly, as a Highland clan name it represents a nickname from the Gaelic "cam" meaning crooked, bent, plus "sron", nose. Secondly, in the Lowlands it is normally a locational name from any of the various places so called, all of which show early forms such as "Cambrun", and are named from the Gaelic "cam" plus "brun", hill. The surname dates back to the early 13th Century (see below), and early recordings include: Hugh Cambrun (1219), sheriff of Forfare, and Johannes Cambron (1233), a witness in Moray. Church Records include the christenings of John, son of John and Helen Cameron, on September 5th 1628 in Edinburgh, and Robert, son of James and Anna Cameron, on February 25th 1666 in Edinburgh...
