Sutherland Genealogy & History

Sutherland is a powerful Scottish clan name, originating in the northern highlands county of Sutherland in the days of the Picts. Derived from Old Norse "suthroen", meaning southern, plus the suffix "land", its northern location seems odd, but Sutherland is situated south of Scandinavia and specifically south of the Norse colonies in the Orkney and Shetland Islands. The Sutherland seat was Dunrobin Castle; the chief was the Earl of Sothyrland, with Sutherland genealogy tracing descent from a Flemish nobleman Freskin. Sutherland family history also includes a feudal manor in Caithness, the eastern county abutting Sutherland.� The family motto, "sans peur" means "without fear".
