Many years ago I learned that my family’s origin goes back to one of the families of Scotland – the Home/Hume family (Please note that in Scotland the name “Home” is always pronounced “Hume,” which is what led some of the family to change the spelling to match the pronunciation). The Home/Hume family is considered a family and not a clan since they inhabited the lowland and border regions next to England, whereas the clans of Scotland are all found in the highlands.
In my research, I have discovered the family tartan, it’s crest and the fact that there is a Hume Castle. Some of my discoveries are below:
