Clunes Family Genealogy Forum
It's my understanding that the spelling of names only became standardised in relatively recent times. When most people were illiterate, the spelling depended on what the scribe thought he heard!
I use the spelling Clunes, but have also seen Cluness, Clunis and Clunas.
My people were living in Sutherlandshire in the 18th & early 19th centuries. However, I have it on good advice that the name comes from Perthshire.
Anybody looking for any Gordon Clunes?
