This is your website

We hope it acts as a reference point for all those of you, no matter where you are in the world, who bear the name of Napier, or are descended from a Napier, or are just interested in the Napier family.

What you will find here

There is a great deal of information here about the Clan Napier. Firstly, there is a discussion on the origins of our surname; details on the Kilmahew, Wrichtishousis, and Merchiston Families; a list of immediate descendants of John Napier (of logarithms fame); and a Napier Book List. Browse around, and you will find much more. We hope you like our photograph album, and the section on Napier homes.

This website has the blessing of our Clan Chief, The Right Honourable Sir Francis David Charles Napier, 15th Lord Napier, 6th Baron Ettrick and 12th Baronet of Thirlestane, Chief of the Name and Arms of Napier, who has written you a Page of Welcome.

What is the Clan Napier Society, anyway?

We are an association based in the UK, a sister organisation to CNNA (which is based in North America), and we own and run this website. You'll find out more about us here. New members are always welcome, so why not join today?
