Anstruther

Periissem ni periissem

The Scottish King Alexander I bestowed land around Anstruther, Fife, to William de Candella in the 12th century. Future generations then took on the name of Anstruther. The family is thought to have descended from the Normans in Italy and may have assisted William the Conqueror in his battles. In the early 19th century, the estates of Carmichael in Lanarkshire came into the hands of the Anstruthers.
