The goal of this project is to ... offer a focal point for all members interested in the Lairds and Chiefs of Clan Piper together with members bearing the name Piper, the related families and those recognised as septs of Clan Piper.
Here are some of the tasks that I think need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help.
  • promoting the entries of those bearing the name Piper on Wikitree.
  • ensuring entries appearing on Wikitree are as accurate as possible, correcting mistakes once spotted.
  • encouraging interest in and study of Clan Piper.

From House of Names [2]:

Piper History - The people known in ancient Scotland as the Picts were the forefathers of the Piper family. It is also the name for a person who played the bagpipes.

Early Origins of the Piper family - The surname Piper was first found in Innerbundy in Aberdeenshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Obar Dheathain), located in the Grampian region of northeastern Scotland. They held a family seat from early times and first records appeared on the census rolls taken by the ancient Kings of Britain to determine the rate of taxation of their subjects.

Piper Spelling Variations - When dictionaries were produced in the last few hundred years, spelling gradually became standardized. Before that time, scribes spelled according to sound. Names were often recorded under different spelling variations every time they were written. Piper has been written Piper, Pyper and others.
