    The name Gibson was first found in Galloway (South West Scotland) where they held their family seat from early times. Descendants from Gilbert, Lord of Galloway. The Gibsons first settled in Lennox (Just north of Glasgow). They were historically very important family.

    Gibson is indeed a sept of Buchanan: http://www.scotclans.com/scottish_clans/clan_buchanan/ whose lands are Loch Lomond-shire, these lands were granted by the Lord of Lennox so there are connections there.

    An interesting family, they are described as a ‘formidable force’.

    Best wishes with your journey into finding out about where you are from.
