WHAT DOES THE Oliphant NAME MEAN?

WHERE DOES THE Oliphant CLAN HAIL FROM?
The Lords Oliphant at their most wealthy era owned lands in 7 counties with a minimum of three estates in each county. In some areas they owned considerably more land, such as Perthshire and of course Caithness where they owned about a quarter of the entire county.

Hatton Castle in Angus was built in 1575 by the 4th Lord Oliphant to replace nearby Balcraig Castle. Restored by Roderick Oliphant in the 1980s the Castle then sadly had to be sold due to taxes.
