The Carmichaels took their name from the lands of Carmichael in Lanarkshire which were granted to them in 1370 by William, Earl of Douglas and Mar. In 1647 Sir James Carmichael of Carmichael was created Lord Carmichael, and in 1701 his son became Earl of Hyndford. The family became ‘Carmichael Anstruther’ upon the death of the 6th Earl in 1817 but in 1980 the present chief succeeded and readopted the ancient family name and started a flourishing ‘Clan Carmichael’. Some Carmichaels spread to Galloway where they were known as Mac-Michael, and later to Lismore, becoming a Sept of the Stewarts of Appin, whilst another family became hereditary henchmen of the MacDougall chiefs. Others were settled in Islay and Kintyre by the Duke of Argyll, but many more dispersed to Ireland and the new world. Crest: Armed arm holding broken spear. Motto: ‘Tout Jour Prest’ (always ready). Chief: Richard Caramichael of Carmichael, 30th Chief.
