Editors Note: The Stirlings of Fairburn claim to be MacGregors who, under the protection of Clan Stirling, took the Stirling name during the proscription and kept the Stirling name when the proscription was lifted. The Lord Lyon of Scotland has recognized this ancestry by granting arms with the MacGregor charges surmounted by the differenced Stirling bend and buckles.
