The head of Clan Lamont is Chief Peter Noel Lamont of that Ilk.
Rev. Lamont is a Roman Catholic priest living in Australia. He was born on 21 November 1955, and became chief upon the death of his father, Noel Brian Lamont, on16 July 1972. His branch of the family came to Australia in 1855, led by his great great grandfather, Edward Buller Lamont.
The chiefship moved to Australia in 1929, when Peter's great uncle, Edward Luis Lamont, became the 22nd chief. Peter has a younger brother, Gregory, who is married, and has sons, so the chief's line will continue in Australia through his nephews. He also has a sister, Roxanne. Father Lamont was ordained at St. Patrick's Cathedral, in Parramatta on 22 November 1986.
The chief's last visit to Canada was in July of 1996.
Our next event will be the Antigonish Highland Games on 8 July 2013.
