"The BUCHANANS of Buchanan, and of that ilk, are descended from
Gilbert, Seneschal to the Earl of Lennox, who obtained from him,
in the middle of the thirteenth century, a part of the lands of
Buchanan, in Stirlingshire, Scotland, and took his name from
them. The King confirmed these lands by charter to Gilbert's
descendant, Maurice of Buchannane. Alan BUCHANAN, second son of
Gilbert, eighth laird of Buchanan, m. Margaret of Lenney, dau.
of Gillespie of Lenney, who, according to a charter of Alexander
II to this Alan, dated 5th Oct. 1227, held Lenney “by virtue of
a small sword which King Culen (965-70) gave as a symbol to
Gillespie MOIR, her ancestor, for his particular service.” The
BUCHANANS of [p.108] Lenny received a charter from David II,
granting them permission to bear the Royal Lion, in memory of
their great antiquity as “Keepers of the Small Sword” to the
Kings of Scotland. Walter BUCHANAN, through the marriage with a
daughter of Menteith of Rusky, became connected with the royal
house. Sir Alexander BUCHANAN is said to have slain, in 1421, at
the Battle of Bauje-en-Anjou, the Duke of Clarence, and the
clan's war-cry, “Clain Inch,” is said to have come from this
event. Thomas BUCHANAN, the founder of the Maryland family, came
from England and settled in Prince George's Co., Md., in 1760.
He was a brother of Sir Francis James BUCHANAN, who was a
Lieutenant-Colonel of Artillery in the British Army, and who d.
Feb. 1787, and is buried at Bath, England."
