:-[] 3 Celts & Company • "LAMONT"

The Clan MacEarcher (i.e. from some Farquhar chief, earlier than the northern Farquharsons' ancestor) were the immemorial of their part of Argyllshire, centered on Castle Toward in Cowal. A chief or his son in the 13th centuiry seemingly acquired a special judicial rank that earned the clan, or its earliest branch, the new name 'Law-man,' hence Laumon, Lamont and other variations. The clan lost power and territory to Campbells and other neighbours, through marriages and less gentle means. A Dunoon monumnet recalls the 1646 capture and destruction of Toward Castle, with the subsequent massacre of many principal Lamonts on the excuse of their adherence to the royalist cause. The chief's seat there-after became Ardlamont, at the other end of the Kyles of Bute.

:-P:-[] 3 Celts & Company • "LESLIE"

The name is from the lands of Leslie in Garioch, Aberdeenshire, granted to Malcolm, son of Bartholf or Bartholomew under King William the Lion. A 13th-century descendant obtained grant of the Fife lands now also called Leslie; and a later marriage brought to the family the earldom of Rothes in Moray, now seat of the Chief. John Leslie (1526-96), Bishop of Ross, was a notable historian and devoted champion to Mary Queen of Scots. Then in the following century there were at one time active three Generals Leslie: Walter, Count Leslie, with the German Emperor, whilst Alexander and David Leslie both earned distintion first with Gustavas Adolphus, then with Scotland's Covenanting armies.

:-P:-[] 3 Celts & Company • "LINDSAY"

The widespread Lindsays claim Norman origin, the name from an "Isle of lime-trees' near Rouen and said to have been spelt nearly 200 different ways, as Limesay, Lindesey ect. in England. Under David I, Sir Walter Lindsay was the first to hold position in Scotland, the family settling by Tweedside, from Earlston to Caddonlea. Connected from the 12th century with Crawford on Upper Clyde (hence their chief earldom title), by the 14th they had extended by marriage to Fife and Angus. 'The Lindsays light and gay'--and some who were neither--took high rank in Scotlands affairs and battles. Sir David Lindsay of the Mount, tutor to King James V, could infuse gaiety into the reforming courage of his great drama of 1540 'The Three Estates,' recently given successful revival. The Lord Lindsay of 1740 was the first Colonel of the Black Watch regiment.
