Cumming Tartan & Clan

The first of the Cummings (Comyn) Clan to come to the UK was Robert Comyn, a chum of William the Conqueror. When Robert came to these shores in the eleventh century he was made the Earl of Northumberland. His Family grew in power over the years, eventually having two claims to the throne of Scotland. During the thirteenth century Clan Cumming was the most powerful Clan in Scotland but this came to an end when Robert the Bruce challenged and defeated the Cumming's claim to the throne, leaving the clan in tatters.
