Lumsden Tartan & Clan

The name Lumsden was taken from the name of their estate in Berwickshire and the various spellings evolved from there. Lumsdaine estate lies north of Coldingham in what was then the County of Berwick but is now Berwickshire. The manor of Lummesdene is first mentioned in a charter of 1098, when Edgar, King of Scots, son of St.Margaret and Malcolm III Canmore, refounded Coldingham Priory, endowing it with the villages of Coldingham, Lummesdene, Auldecambus, Renton and Swinewood in the County of Berwick.
