Maxwell History

The early history of the Maxwell family is closely intertwined with the history of Scotland. Maxwells helped shape the fledgeling Nation and steered it towards independance.

Here then is a brief history of some of the events in the lives of our Maxwell forefathers. The history has been divided up into logical parts for ease of reading and to give some different viewpoints on the same subject.
