Origin of Clan Dunlop

[Book] Origin of Clan Dunlop

[Thin Blue Line]

The Scottish family of Dunlop takes its name from the Gaelic community of "dun laib" ("muddy fort"> in Ayrshire.

In 1496, a family living in this area styled themselves as "Dunlop of that Ilk" (meaning `Dunlop of that place'). From that time, the Scottish families of Dunlop spread throughout the western regions of Scotland.
