Clan Maitland Society
- We share a distinguished history
- Learn about your kinsfolk and forbears.
- The Society can provide limited guidance on your background and origins, but once a link has been found, we can trace descent back to the 13th century.
- Meet fellow Maitlands at social events in the UK, North America and Australia.
- Keep up to date with new research on our shared background through the Yearbook. Newsletters in the U.K., North America and Australia keep members in touch with local events.
- Maitland tartan is a fine demonstration of your membership of a family which has contributed greatly to the development of Scotland, Britain and the United States as well as Australia and New Zealand. The tartan is only available to members of the Society.
- Items in Maitland tartan, clan badges and other items associated with the family are available only from the Society, and are not sold in retail stores specializing in Scottish items.
