Clan Cunningham is a Scottish clan. The clan does not currently have a chief, therefore it is considered an Armigerous clan by the Standing Council of Scottish Chiefs, though recently two contenders for the chiefship have emerged. Sir John Montgomery Cuningham Bt of Corsehill has petitioned the Lord Lyon for recognition (February 2011) but his petition has been challenged by W R B Cunninghame Graham of Gartmore. The case is currently before the Lyon Court and is awaiting his decision.
