Recognition of Cunningham Chief
Petition Background (Preamble):
Fortunately the last four chiefs were unified in their designation of a female line as heirs should their male-heir line fail, and we have found the eldest descendant of that line.
Therefore it it time to have him recognized by the Crown through Lord Lyon and take the leadership in Clan Cunningham.
Robert William Bontine Cunninghame Graham of Gartmore is the eldest surviving descendent from the 12th Earl of Glencairn and Chief of Clan Cunningham. In 1796, his ancestor, Robert Cunninghame Graham of Gartmore, as eldest surviving son of Lady Margaret Cunninghame, eldest daughter of the 12th Chief, from her marriage to Nicol Graham of Gartmore, received the ancestral estate, undifferenced arms and name of Cunninghame upon the death of her nephew, the last Earl of Glencairn and Chief of Cunningham by entail of the 12th Earl. He bears the undifferenced arms of the Earls of Glencairn and Chiefs of Cunningham. His line of descent was chosen as heir by the lasts Chiefs and as such we clan members, associates and supporters request that he be recognized as our Chief of Cunningham.
He is also descended from Robert the Bruce, King of Scotland and Edward the I, King of England.
