Old French: Bailli
Badge: Boar's Head
Latin Motto:Quid clarius astris (What is brighter than the stars?)
The name Baillie is probably derived from the French Baillie meaning bailiff or steward which in Scotland would be sheriff. It could come from the place in Lanarkshire call Bailey.

It is first recorded in Lothian in 1311.  It is not a clan in the highland sense but is an old lowland family. The tartan was created in the 1700s for the "Baillie Fencibles", a 600 strong regiment based in Inverness. It is recorded in the 1819 Key Pattern Books of Wilson of Bannockburn.
