History: This name is first recorded as a surname in the Lennox, a rich agricultural region north of Glasgow under the Campsie Fells, in the 12th century. In early medieval times the region to which Lennox belongs was an independent Welsh-speaking kingdom, with its capital at Dumbarton. It was not integrated into the rest of Scotland until 1124. The first recorded chief of the Galbraiths was Gilchrist ‘the Briton’, living in 1193.
