Balfour History

The Balfour clan takes its name from the barony of the same name and is located near the joining of the rivers Ore and Leven in Fife.

The first record of the name is that of John de Balfure who appears on an assize in 1304, and there is note of a William de Balfure who witnessed a charter by Duncan, Earl of Fife (1331-1335).
