Author: R. Gunn
This two-part history of the Gunns in Scotland and the United States originated with the author's service in Europe during World War I and his introduction to soldiers and officers in Scottish Highland Regiments who were from regions of northern Scotland inhabited by members of the extended Gunn family.
The first (and shorter) portion of the book is devoted to background information on the origins of the Gunns, the lands they held in Scotland, and the traditions and customs of the Highland Scots as they evolved over the centuries.
The second part details the history and genealogy of those of the Gunn Clan who settled in the Unites States. There are chapters on the New England Gunns; the Virginia Gunns; William, George and Richard Gunn, who served in the Revolutionary War; the Gunns of Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi; and finally, Gunns from other parts of the country. The material relating to the United States is heavily genealogical, with extended family lines down into the first half of the 20th century. Overall, this history provides an extended view of the origins and history of the Gunns in Scotland, and as well contains extensive genealogical material on a large number of those who settled in the US.
