The Sprouting Oak: The Newsletter of the Clan Watson Society

We will make available all editions of The Sprouting Oak on this page. Our very first issue, dated February 2022, is now available and we aim to issue a new edition every quarter.

Topics we would like to cover in future issues include

  • Heraldry - an introduction, plus a summary of our research to date on Watson heraldry
  • Watson/Forbes links
  • What is a clan? Were the Watsons really a clan? Does it matter in a 21st century context?
  • How to research your own ancestry
  • DNA testing
  • Other Watson clusters (plus any links to the Watsons of Saughtons)
  • As we include feature articles in the newletter, we will incorporate relevant material on the main website. We would also like to introduce one member of our community each issue.

    If you would like to contribute to the newsletter, would like to feature in it yourself, or would like to provide us with feedback, please contact us!
