Cameron Purse

My name is Douglas Cameron Purse, Vancouver B.C.,
my father was David Cameron Purse, Vancouver B.C.,
my granfather was James Cameron Purse originally from Glasgow. We are of the Clan Cameron of Locheil. I am curious as to where we adaopted the name Purse, as it isn't listed as a clan affiliate. I heard a story once that one of our forebearers in the 1700's was a purser to the English king that's how we got our name. However I would like to find out for sure. Has anybody heard of this family line?
