Welcome to Clan MacLennan New Zealand. Our Clan genealogy pages for New Zealand have probably the best coverage of any region in the world – with roots going back to Scotland and elsewhere. The evidence for the work include official record citations, certificates, headstones and much more. We have good coverage of the McLennans who migrated from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia to Waipu (and surrounds). Access to the on-line Clan database is available simply by joining the Clan association – please click on “Membership application” on this page.

We attend Highland Gatherings in different parts of NZ, our Facebook page is a place to connect with other Clan members.

The WW1 Roll of Honour in the timber Presbyterian Church at Kaurihohore, Northland, New Zealand. Many of these families had migrated first to Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia or PEI from Applecross and other parishes on the west coast of Scotland. In the 1850s they moved on again to the north of New Zealand.
David Alexander McLennan (i11240 in the Clan Records) died in the Dardanelles, and Alexander McLennan (i11767) in the Somme, France – both were sons of Norman and Isabella McLennan of Kaurihohore.
