Buchanan Genealogy & History

Buchanan family history has deep roots in Scotland extending back at least to the thirteenth century, before the war for independence from Britain. It is a place name and refers to Clan Buchanan's historic territory of Buchanan near Loch Lomond in Scotland. The clan probably first occupied the land in the early eleventh century and received it officially by royal grant in 1225. Unlike Buchanan genealogy, the place name of Buchanan has obscure roots. It may come from Gaelic and mean "house of the canon" or from German and mean "beech wood."
