Clan History

watson_img_historyWatson History

The name Watson derives from Walter along with many others such as Wat, Watt MacWattie, Macouat and MacWatson.  The name is fairly common throughout Scotland (listed 20th most common in 2003) and England, but is more strongly associated with certain areas such as Aberdeen and Kincardineshire.
The Watsons are linked to the Forbes clan in Angus and to the Buchanans in Stirlingshire and western Perthshire.
