...... is a surname that rose to prominence in Argyll and Bute, in the western isles of Scotland. A prominent feature of this site is the presentation of family history and other information about the origins, relations, and descendants of Peter LAMONT and his wife Elizabeth STEWART. Peter and Elizabeth were married in Glasgow where Elizabeth was living in 1828. They were enumerated in the Burgh of Rothesay, Buteshire, Scotland, during the 1841 Census of Scotland, but then they disappear from the records - it's presumed that they died some time between 1843 and the spring of 1851. On Census Day in 1851, most of their children were living with an aunt - Euphemia McLACHLAN, at Stronduich in the Parish of Kilfinan, Argyllshire, near Ardlamont, the ancestral home of the Lamont Clan Chief. Descendants of Peter and Elizabeth can be found today in Scotland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the United States, and beyond. This site will also present evidence supporting the suggestion that Peter Lamont's parents were John Lamont and his wife Mary JOHNSTON.
