Clan Carruthers

Carruthers is a Riding Name originating from Annandale in Dumfriesshire, South West Scotland. The earliest recorded use of our name is William de Carruthers, in the early 1200’s. Our chiefly line starts there, and progresses through the Carruthers of Mouswald, which became extinct in 1548, to Carruthers of Holmains where it sits to this day. Our family has played an integral role in regional and Scottish history and is part of the rich tapestry which has made up Scotland’s Border heritage over the last 1000 years and more.
