Clan Renwick

Wednesday, August 02, 2006

The name comes from Cumberland (England) , originally Raveneswic (dairy farm of an Anglo-Saxon called Raven), on the east side of the river Eden. James Renwick, the covenanter, was the last man executed (1688) for religious principles in Scotland-he was beheaded in Grassmarket Square, Edinburgh. John Runnick is recorded in Dalzell-Kittimure in 1634, Robert Rinnick in Stanehouse in 1657, Robert Rinnick in Dalzell-Kittimure in 1686 and Robert Rennick in Newbigging 1687. There is an ancient and rare Renwick tartan which may imply a link to a Clan.
