France holds a special place for our Clan. For centuries, France and Scotland were allied by the Auld Alliance. The Macleans were Jacobites supporting the Stuart cause and in the 18th century, the Maclean Chief was part of the Stuart Court at the Palace of St. Germain-en-Laye. Also, there were Macleans in French regiments such as the King’s Garde Ecossaise.
In 1991, Alan McLean brought together a group of Macleans and Rankins who held their first informal meeting in Paris at the apartment of the well-known flautist John McLean. Subsequently, in 2003 the formation of Clan Maclean Association France (CMAF) was celebrated at a gathering held on a boat moored in front of the Eiffel Tower.
CMAF is the only association of Clan Maclean which is in a non-English speaking country. There are currently 50 members (including children) who meet periodically. These take the form of soirées and dinners in local restaurants. Every two years a group assembles for the Scotland versus France rugby match at the Stade de France. Occasionally we hold joint meetings with Clan Mackenzie, France.
Alan McLean lives and works in France as President of the McLean Group of Companies. He is married to Dr. Elizabeth Jenner-McLean, JP. He has been a Life Member of Clan Maclean Association Scotland since 1988. In 2007 he was elected an Honorary Member of Council of The Clan Maclean International Association in recognition of his ‘outstanding contribution to the Clan’.
