Nope. No Barrister here!

I'm part of Clan Henderson.

I'm a lineal descendant of "Big Henry" ... Eanruig Mor Mac Righ Neachtan ... son of King Nectan (King of the Picts in 710).

Like all who bear my surname, I am Son-of-Henry ... or Henry's Son: Henderson!

Sola Virtus Nobilitat
Virtue Alone Is Nobility
