          NOTES TO GENEALOGIES OF THE HIGHLAND CLANS

           
          From the peculiar condition of society among the Highlanders,
        the investigation of family history becomes an important instrument 
        in ascertaining and illustrating the leading facts of their origin and
        history. The attention of the Club will, consequently, be in a
        considerable degree directed to this object; and it is proposed to 
        include in the Collectanea, a series of the Genealogies of
        Highland Clans which are still to be found in ancient MSS.  In
        the present number, the series commences with the contents of the
        most ancient Genealogical MS. now known to exist.  It was
        discovered, accidentally, in the Advoate's Library last year,
        and consists of eight parchment leaves, the last of which is covered
        with genealogies, written in the old Irish character, but so very
        much faded by time as to be read with great difficulty, and, in
        many instances, to be altogether illegible.  Of the authenticity
        of the MS. there can be no doubt, and a strict comparison of all the
        genealogies contained in it has satisfied the editor of its general
        accuracy.  The same careful examination shows that it must have
        been written about the year 1450, and this conclusion, with respect
        to its date, was afterwards corroborated by discovering the date
        1467 written upon one of the leaves.  The author of the MS. appears
        to have been a person of the name of Maclachlan, as the genealogy
        of Clanlachlan is given with much greater minuteness than that of
        any of the other clans; and the various intermarriages of that clan
        alone are given.  From this it seems probable that it once formed a 
        part of the well-known Kilbride Collection, which was so long preserved 
        by the family of M'Lachlan of Kilbride.  Although a greater proportion
        of the contents of this MS. has been deciphered than was at first
        anticipated, a considerable portion still remains, so much obliterated
        by age and exposure as to he in a great degree illegible.  Should any
        further progress be made in reading these parts of the MS., the result
        will be communicated to the Club, on a future occasion. It would
        occupy too much space here to enter into any detail of the very
        important effects which this MS. must produce upon the question
        of the origin of the Highland clans; it will be sufficient to state
        that it seems to establish three very remarkable facts - 1st, The
        existence, at a very early period, of a tradition in the Highlands
        of the common origin of almost all the Highland clans; 2dly, The
        comparatively  late invention of many of the traditionary origins 
        of the different clans at present believed; and, 3dly, The mutual
        relationship of various clans which have hitherto been supposed to be
        altogether unconnected.  It will be altogether impossible, in the
        limits of this branch of the Collectanea, to illustrate these
        curious genealogies as we could wish, or to do more than occasionally
        point out where the MS. is corroborated by record or history.

           Note (2): It will be observed that the MS. commences with a long 
           genealogy of the kings of Scotland from David I.  It has not been 
           thought necessary to translate this genealogy; but, in order to show
           the accuracy of the MS., the genealogy of these kings, contained in 
           the Chronicon regum, Innes' App. No. IV., (as collated with the
           original MS. in Pinkerton's Enquiry, I. 479). has been annexed.

         Note (3): This very curious genealogy appears to be that of the
         ancient Maormors or Earls of Moray.  The following notices from
         the Irish Annals will establish its accuracy.

        The Genealogy of the MacIntoshes, or Clanchattan.- William and
        Donald were the two sons of William son of Ferchar son of 
        William son of Michael son of Ferchar son of Shaw son of Gilchrist 
        son of Hugh the victorious son of Ewen son of .... grandson of
        Neill.  Lachlan son of Swen son of Shaw son of Leod son of Shaw 
        son of Ferchar son of Gilchrist son of Malcolm son of Donald called
        'the one-eyed lad' son of Muirich son of Swen son of Heth son of 
        Nachtan son of Gilichatan, from whom came the Clan Chattan, son of 
        Gilbert son of Diarmed called 'the Leinster man' son of Erc son of 
        Conlait son of Ferchar fada son of Feredach.

        Note:(6): It will be observed that the M'Intoshes are here made a part
        of the clan Chattan, and their origin deduced from Gilecattan mor,
        the well-known founder of that clan, a much more credible story than
        the improbably fiction of their descent from Macduff, Thane of Fife.

        Note: The Gaelic name "Clann Maelanfaig" was in the first part
        erroneously translated MacMillans.  They are, in fact, the Camerons, 
        of whom the Sept of the Camerons of Strone were always known in
        Gaelic as the Siol ic Maolonoy, or ic Gillonoy.

        son of Dunsleve son of Dedalan called the clumsy son of
        Henry, Lord of Badenoch.

        Note(7): "On a rocky point on the coast of Lochfine, about a mile
        below the church of Kilfinan, is to be seen the vestige of a
        building called Caisteal mhic Eoghuin or M'Ewen's castle.  This
        M'Ewen was the chief of a clan and proprietor of Otter."-
        Stat. Acct. vol. 14, p. 259.  From the genealogy, this tribe
        seems to have been a branch of the clan Lauchlan.

        Note(8): Kermac [Kenach] MacMaghan of the Earldom of Ross is
        mentioned in the public accounts of Lawrence le Grant, Sheriff of
        Inverness (then comprehending that Earldom) cir. 1263 in th reign
        of Alexander the third.  The &c. at the end of any genealogy, implies
        that its conclusion is to be sought for in that immediately preceding.

        Note(10); Paul Mactyre had a charter from William Earl of Ross, 
        Lord of Sky, of the lands of Gerloch, 1366.  Clan Andres is the 
        Gaelic appellation of the surname of Ross in Ross-shire to the

        Note(11): This seems to be the genealogy of the Mackays of
        Kintrye, and differs totally from the most authentic genealogies
        of the Mackays of Strathnaver, who are in Gaelic called clan Mhorgan.

        The Genealogy of Maclachlan.- Keneth son of John son of
        Lachlan son of Patrick son of Lachlan mor son of Patrick
        son of Gilchrist son of Dedalan called the clumsy son of
        Henry from whom are descended also the clan Niell.  Catharine
        the daughter of Duncan Maclamon was the mother of Keneth, 
        Patrick and Gilespic.  Agnes, MacDonald's daughter, was
        John's mother, and Elizabeth daughter of the Lord of Cowall,
        was the mother of Lachlan og; the mother of Patrick was the
        daughter of Donald son of Eiri son of Keneth Lord of Kerry
        and the daughter of Lachlan mac Rory was the mother of
        Patrick of Atholl.  
          Alexander son of Ewen son of Peter son of Alexander mor
        son of Ewen son of Duncan son of Dugald; Duncan son of
        Dugald son of Lachlan son of Alexander mor; Ranald son of
        Malcolm son of Duncan brother-german of Donald son of Malcolm 
        son of Dugall son of Gilespic son of Duncan; Duncan son of 
        Gillespic son of Duncan son of Malcolm son of Imair son of 
        Duncan; Neill son of Colin son of Duncan son of Dugall; Persuin 
        son of Duberan son of Duncan.

            The line "mc Anradan conerguid clanna Niel nai giall"
            is mistranslated by the editor - it should read "son of 
            Anradan where it converges with the Clan Neill Nai Giallach."
            This is probably the reason why Skene included the MacNeills
            in this group of descendants of Anradan.

        The Genealogy of the Clan Sorley.- Alan son of John son of Alan

        son of Somerled; John, Somerled, Alan and Alaster og the four sons
        of John son of Duncan son of Dugall.

        Note(14): It will be remarked that this is the genealogy of the
        Macdougals of Lorn.  "John macalan of Lorn, called Macdougal,"
        had from John Stewart, fourth Lord Lorn of that family, a charter
        dated in 1451, of the lands of Dunolly, the Isle of Kerrera, &c.-
        Argyle Writs.

        The Clan Eoin Bacach (the lame).- Eogil son of Lachlan son of
        Somerled son of John, Duncan son of Dugall Duncan son of Alaster son of
        John son of Duncan son of Malcolm son of Lauchlan son of John son of
        Duncan son of Dugall, Ferchar, Lauchlan and Iver the three sons of
        Malcolm son of Iver son of Dugall son of Lachlan son of Duncan
        son of Dugall, Alaster and Somerled the two sons of John son of
        Duncan son of Dugall.

        Note(15): There appears to be some confusion, caused probably by an
        accidental blunder, in this genealogy, which the reader will please to
        bear in mind.  The Eoin bacach of this genealogy is clearly the
        John son of Dunncan son of Dugall of that immediately preceding:-
        and the two form properly one genealogy under the general head of 
        Clan Sorly.

        son of Rory son of Ranald, from whom sprung the Clan Rory,
        Clan Donald, and Clan Dugall.

        Note(16); The words inserted within brackets in the translation, have
        evidently been omitted in the original MS.; and the editor has
        therefore ventured to give them a place, in order to prevent the
        confounding of two distinct genealogies.

        were Alan and John, who was blind during his youth, Donald, Angus the
        grizzled, and Dugall, and here are their children - the children of
        Alan are Rory, Huisten, and John - the children of Donald mac
        Ranald are John, whose mother was Laieve the daughter of mac Iver,

        Note(17): Instead of translating from the MS. the genealogy of the
        Macdonalds prior to Somerled, the editor has preferred placing beside
        it Dean Monro's edition of the same genealogy, dated more than a century
        later, in order that the two may be compared.  But the reader will bear
        in mind that the Dean's MS., to which the editor never had access, has
        been most inaccurately printed.  In the MS. of 1450, the genealogy
        is carried up through the Milesian Kings of Ireland to Adam.  This 
        part of the genealogy, however, the editor will be pardoned for
        having omitted.
