• Clan Maxwell Society •


The Clan Maxwell Society is the world’s largest Maxwell family society. The organization participates in Scottish festivals throughout the United States, promotes the study of all things Maxwell, and helps family members to connect with each other. Organized in 1964 at Grandfather Mountain, North Carolina, the group has accumulated members in Europe, South America, Canada and Australia as well as throughout the United States. Membership is open to all who are descended from Maxwells and the following Allied and Dependent families:

Adair   Blackstock   Dinwiddie/Dinwoodie/Dinswoodie   Edgar   Herries   Kirk/Kirkhoe   Kirkland   Latimer/Lattimer/Latimore/Lattemore   MacKitterick/MacKettrick/Macetterick/MacKetterick   Maxton   Monreith   Moss   Nithsdale   Peacock   Pollock/Pollok   Polk/Paulk   Rawlins   Sturgeon   Wardlaw  

Clan Maxwell Society is perhaps most visible through its sponsorship of Maxwell tents at Scottish festivals throughout the United States. We show the Maxwell colors at more festivals every year — more than 30 last year and more added annually. Clan Maxwell Society also supports projects related to Maxwell history, is building a Maxwell genealogy database which members will be able to access via the internet, and publishes a quarterly newsletter filled with information about Maxwell history and Clan Maxwell Society activities.

Clan Maxwell Society’s biggest event each year is the Annual General Meeting (AGM), a time for conducting the year’s business while meeting and enjoying other family members. The meeting is always held in conjunction with a Scottish festival, with the location changing from year to year to include varying geographic areas.
