Welcome to all Mathesons, Mathiesons and Mathisons (and other variants of the name).

The Clan Matheson Society was founded in the mid-twentieth century to link Mathesons around the world.  This is the website of the New Zealand branch of the society, one of several branches in countries where large numbers of Highland Scots settled. This branch has been active for 30 years, and you can find out more about it here.

The Clan Matheson Society links clan members worldwide and provides a connection to their Highland Scottish heritage.  People interested in their Matheson heritage can connect through their branch’s events, newsletters and websites, and gather occasionally to discover more about their clan’s origins.
