Gaelic Manuscript of 1467, known earlier as MS1450

Gaelic Ms. of 1450
Collectanea De Rebus Albanicis (Iona Club) No. 1
Genealogies of the Highland Clans


For a complete discussion of these genealogies, see Skene's "Celtic Scotland", Vol. 3; and "The Highland Clans," Vol. 2. A discussion of the clans in descent from Clan Donald in Argyle may be found in "Memorials of Argyleshire."


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 andhistory. 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.

The Clan ..... or children of Millonoy of Stron, son of Gillony, son of Martan og, son of .... son of Martan mor, son of Gilla Cameron. 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. Clann Gillacolum .i.

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(9): The descent of this tribe from one Kry-cul (the Gregall of the MS.) is corroborated by the tradition of the country, as stated in the account of the parish of Eddirachylis.- Stat.

Note(10); Paul Mactyre had a charter from William Earl of Ross, Lord of Sky, of the lands of Gerloch, 1366.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
