WHERE DOES THE Craig CLAN HAIL FROM?
The Craig name is found across Scotland associated with "craigs" (cliffs and rocky outcrops) and was never identified with one specific area. Ailsa Craig in the Firth of Clyde is a prime example.

In 1610, Sir James Craig and his family left Scotland to go to Ireland as part of the Jacobean plantation of Ulster. One of his descendants, James Craig of County Down was one of the organisers of the Ulster Volunteer Force set up during the struggle against Home Rule in the early 1920's. James went on to become the first Prime Minister of Northern Ireland by 1921 and took the title of Viscount Craigavon. In the 1960's a new town of Craigavon in County Armagh was named after him.
