Blair Clan Book
Witness to some of the most dramatic events in Scotland’s frequently turbulent history, bearers of the Blair name can lay claim to roots buried deep in the nation’s ancient soil.
From the bloody thirteen and fourteenth century Wars of Independence to the religious schisms of the seventeenth century, they played a pivotal role in key events while others have gained recognition through other endeavours and pursuits that include politics.
A controversial figure to this day over his support for the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan in 2001 and of Saddam Hussein’s Iraq two years later, Tony Blair is the former Labour politician who served as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from May of 1997 to June of 2007, while John Blair, born in 1732, is recognised as one of the Founding Fathers of the United States.
The colourful and dramatic tale of the Blairs of both yesteryear and today is recorded here.
