  • Note:
    The name Adam was popular in the Clan Macduff. Adam of Ceres (Syras) --whichs lies between Cupar and Cameron -- is thought to have been a younger son of Gillemichael Macduff, earl of Fife in 1133 and Duncan, Earl of Fife (1154-1204), had a younger brother Adam. A charter of Tay fishings in the Carse of Gowrie was witnessed by Adam of Cameron (Kamerum) early in the thirteenth century.

    Robert of Cameron (Cam-brun) was granted the lands of Ballegarno in the Carse of Gowrie by king Willian the Lyon (1165-1214). A branch of the Clan Macduff, sprung from a younger son of the Earls of Fife, became Earls of Atholl in the second half of that century;

    and in 1296 Sir Robert Cameron (Cambron) was Sheriff of Atholl, the great highland district bordering on Lochaber. He was doubtless the Sir Robert Cameron (Cambroun) of the county of Perth, whose red castle was at Ballegarno near Dunsinane in the Carse of Gowrie, near the Earl of Fife's Barony of Kinnoull, and whose seal in 1292 bore a shield with the same three bars borne later on their armorial shields by the Camerons of Lochiel in Lochaber.
