The name is from the lands of Dunlop around Cunninghamin Ayrshire.  It was first recorded in 1260 when Dominus Willelmus de Dunlop witnessed a deed.

The family were prominent Presbyterian and Covernanter supporters in the sixteen hundreds suffering forfeiture of lands and imprisonment. In the '45' they supported the Government.  In the Peninsular wars James Dunlop commanded a Brigade under Wellington and gained the rank of Major General.
 

The tartan was designed in 1982 for the House of Dunlop with stong connections with America.
