• Clan Maxwell Society Membership •

 

(d) Honorary Members may be designated by the Executive Council in recognition of meritorious and outstanding service to the Society or to the Clan. Honorary Members shall not be required to, but may, make financial contributions to this Society.

Clan Maxwell Society accepts members in four categories:

FULL MEMBERS - Persons 18 years of age or older (i) who bear the surname Maxwell or any of the recognized names of families historically allied with the Maxwells, however spelled, by birth and descent or adoption, or (ii) whose mother or any maternal grandparent, great grandparent, or great-great grandparent bears, or bore, the surname Maxwell or any of the recognized names of families historically allied with the Maxwells by birth and descent or adoption.

ASSOCIATE MEMBERS - Persons who are spouses or partners of one who qualifies for full membership in the Society.

AFFILIATE MEMBER - Persons 18 years of age or over whose descent from persons bearing the surname Maxwell or the surname of an Allied Family is more distant than five generations; or any other adult person desirous of being affiliated with Clan Maxwell Society.

HONORARY MEMBER - Persons designated by the Executive Council in recognition of meritorious and outstanding service to the Society or to the Clan. Honorary Members shall not be required to, but may, make financial contributions to this Society.

ALLIED FAMILIES - Persons with surnames recognized as allies and sependents of the House of Maxwell are eligible for membership in all three membership types described above, simply substituting their family surnames for “Maxwell” to determine the appropriate category. The allied and dependent families recognized by Clan Maxwell are:

Adair Blackstock Dinwiddie Dinwoodie Edgar Herries Kirk
Kirkland Latimore MacKittrick Maxton Monreith Moss Nithsdale
Peacock Pollock Polk/Paulk Rawlins Sturgeon Wardlaw  
 

What Are the Benefits?

  • Members receive the Society’s quarterly newsletter, The House of Maxwell. This award-winning publication includes updates on Clan Maxwell activities, articles on Maxwell (and allied families) history, and interesting stories of Maxwells around the world both past and present.

  • Members receive an annual Membership Directory containing names, addresses, and e-mail addresses of all other Clan Maxwell Society members.

  • Members participate in Scottish festivals throughout the United States, representing the clan whenever and wherever Scottish clans gather. These events inevitably lead to fellowship with never-before-met Maxwells, and they allow us to display our heritage for family and non-family alike.

  • Members can participate in Clan Maxwell’s efforts to research and preserve the family’s Scottish heritage. For example, the group is currently sponsoring historical research and artistry designed to produce a visual depiction of the “lost” Maxwell Castle of Dumfries, Scotland.

  • Members will have access to the Clan Maxwell Society genealogy database when it is completed. The database is currently being developed, and plans are underway to make it accessable to members via the internet. Members also regularly publish genealogical queries in the quarterly newsletter, often leading to connections with members who have answers they need.

  • The greatest benefit of Clan Maxwell membership is simply knowing that you are part of your worldwide family, proudly remembering its colorful past and enjoying opportunities to be with others who share your blood, your heritage, and your inheritance as members of the House of Maxwell.
