The origins of the surname 'Fraser' came from France as "de Fresel", "de Friselle", of Norman origin appearing in the 12th century.
Then they held land in East Lothian followed by Aberdeen shire and Kincardineshire but though marriage acquired the Bisset lands round Beauly Inverness-shire.
The latter was granted by Alexander III (1249-86) to Simon Fraser of Lovat.
He fought against the English for William Wallace and Robert the Bruce whose life he saved in battle on three occasions which is the origin of the three crowns on the Fraser arms.
