General Information

Until the late eighteenth century, there were very few Mathesons anywhere outside Scotland. Today, however, the family has spread across the globe and there are few countries where the name is not known. Norway is just one example of where many Mathesons have settled. The Clan Matheson Society was set up in the mid-twentieth century to help members keep in touch with their family and roots. As well as running their own events and keeping in contact with their own communities, each branch of the Society takes every opportunity they can to get together. This is helped by regular Clan Gatherings, every four to five years. In addition, members often visit branches in other countries. If there is no branch in your country, please contact the Clan Chief for further assistance.
