Nathaniel Dunlop was born in Campbeltown and moved to Glasgow for work, taking a job a a clerk with the Glasgow based Allan Line and rising through the ranks to become a director and also the longest serving Chairman of the Clyde Navigation Trust.

Dunlop is a famous Scottish surname, which derives from a place near Cunningham, in Ayrshire. The original meaning was the fort, dun, at a muddy place, Lapach. The name is very popular in the America and Canada, although the spelling form has almost reverted to the original dialectal of the middle ages being found usually as Dalape, Dunlap or Dunlape. William Dunlop the Elder, is recorded as having emigrated to California, America, in 1680, before returning to Scotland to become Principal of Glasgow University in 1690. He died in 1700 at the age of only fifty one. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Dom Gullelmus de Dunlop, which was dated 1260, a charter witness at the town of Irvine, Scotland.
