Malcolm Clan History

In older records, Malcolm is often listed as Callum.
There is a debate as to whether the Malcolms and MacCallums
are from the same stock, most think they are. The earlier
genealogy of Malcolm can be traced to the year 1450.

Sir Duncan Campbell, of Lochow, was said to have granted his
land in Craignish (on the banks of Loch Avich) to Reginald
MacCallum of Corbarron in 1414. Sir Duncan was the hereditary
constable of the castles Lochaffy and Craignish. Corbarron was
given to the last of the family, Zachary MacCallum of Poltalloch.
"The MacCallums were in Poltalloch previous to 1562,
and Duguld MacCallum of Poltalloch, who succeeded to the estate in 1779,
is said to be the first to adopt the name Malcolm permanently"
