Clan MacEwen Commander

Sir John R.H McEwen, 5th Baronet of Marchmont and Bardrochat

 

The Commander of our Clan is Sir John McEwen, an actor and writer, small-holder and husband, father of four and resident of Berwickshire in which county he was born in 1965. He is the 5th Baronet of Marchmont and Bardrochat. His grandfather Jock, a poet and politician, was appointed to the baronetcy in 1953, in recognition of his service to Scottish public life. He was succeeded in 1962 by his elder son Jamie, a painter, who died in 1971. John’s father Robin, a lawyer and illustrator, then became the 3rd Baronet. In 1980 Robin died and his elder son James, a cartoonist and musician, succeeded. The 4th baronet died young in 1983 and John succeeded aged seventeen. Educated at Ampleforth, University College London and the University of Glasgow, John has worked extensively as a journalist but recently rediscovered a passion for the theatre. In the last four years he has acted in numerous plays, directed several more and written and produced, and acted in, three full-length shows. He is Chairman of his local theatrical troupe, the Duns Players. He is married to Rachel, a science teacher, and his children are Susanna (born 2002), Georgia (2004), Joseph (2008) and Robin (2013). They live in the ancient village of Polwarth where visiting Clansfolk are always welcome.
