Origin of the name

Apparently derived from the Gaelic language "Uamch" (or "Uaimh") meaning "Caves." This is directly related to the geography of the coast of Fife, Scotland, in which a series of caves are found at the location of the modern towns of East Wemyss, West Wemyss and Coaltown of Wemyss.

Clan

Clan MacDuff: The Wemyss are a "Lowland Family" directly descended from the Celtic nobles, the Macduff Earls of Fife.
