Welcome to Clan Cunningham International !

Clan Cunningham International was founded as an organization for all persons of Cunningham descent, regardless of viewpoints, as well as for persons descending from the District of Cunninghame families, or for those who wish to help promote the proud history of our clan. The organization has evolved and grown greatly in these few short years and represents Clan Cunningham at Scottish Games and Celtic festivals all over the United States, Canada, Scotland and New Zealand, just to mention a few. And our presence isn't limited strictly to the US! We now have members in New Zealand, England, Canada, and Scotland.

Clan Cunningham is a proud member of the Council of Scottish Clans and Associations since 2002.

Chief's Message

Officers of CCI,

Many of you have been kind enough to send me welcoming congratulations on being officially recognised by the Lord Lyon as Chief of the name of Cunninghame. Actually this matter will not be completely ratified until the 23rd January 2014. In one sense it would have been better to have kept the matter under wraps until then.
I made a promise to those who were at the dinner in Glasgow some three years ago that I would formalise my position as Head of the Family if you so wished. With your encouragement I started making the necessary arrangements to accomplish this. After a few months of preparation I was confident that the matter would be settled in a further two or three months. However a Respondent appeared and both my lawyers and the Lyon's office had to consider the matter much more rigorously. The matter then dragged on for over two and a half years, took a great deal of my time and I might add, money. Although I never doubted the outcome, it has been an irksome delay for all of us. For this I apologise, but there was nothing I could do to speed things up. On the 23rd January we will have finality and I greatly hope you will be pleased at that.
In the Western World life has been pretty tough over the last few years, but the economic outlook both in the United States and in Britain seems to be gradually improving. Let us hope that 2014 will be a good and happy year for all of us and for Clan Cunningham International.
I wish you a successful and rewarding New Year. May God bless you all
John Cunninghame"
