:-[] 3 Celts & Company • "MACARTHUR"

This early branch of the Campbell clan long claimed its chiefship. The Argyllshire MacArthurs of Bruce's time took their part against the MacDougalls of Lorn, and were richly rewarded out of the latter's territory, including the custodianship of Dunstaffnage Castle. Their own too-ambitious power was broken in 1427 when John MacArthur their chief forfeited to King James I all clan territory, and his own head to the block. The clan afterwards acquired footings at Strachur in Cowal and around Glendochart, whist a sept of them were hereditary pipers to the MacDonads of the Isles.

:-[] 3 Celts & Company • "MACAULAY"

The Dunbartonshire MacAulays claim descent from MacGregor and hence MacAlpin stock. Seated at Ardincaple (now Helensburgh) since at least the 13th century, they were under protection of and closely connected with the old earls of Lennox [see clan Home | 'HUME' p.58,59]. It is from a brother Aulay of the earl in Alexander II's time that the clan name is believed to derive. A branch that removed to Loch Fyne took the name MacPhedran, which became Paterson.
Lord MacAulay (1800-59), writer and statesman but famed chiefly for his 'History of England,' was descended of a different small clan that was settled at Uig, on the west side of the Isle of Lewis. Of Norse origin, the name here deriving from 'Olaf,' these Northern MacAulays were often at feud with the neighbouring Morrisons and usurping MacKenzies.

:-[] 3 Celts & Company • "MACBETH"

One of the exceptions among the 'Macs,' the name means not the son of any person 'Beth,' but 'Son of life' or a man of religion. It developed a separate form Macbean (see above), and has also become confused with forms of the Norman name Bethune. Shakespeare, playing his immortal light over the old Celtic throne of Scotland, brings to focus the ruler of Moray who enforced his family claim thereon by the murder of King Duncan in 1040. Macbeths, frequently called Beatons, held high repute and rank from the 14th century to the 17th, as physicians and chancellors to the MacDonalds of Islay and Macleans of Mull, sometimes also to royalty and elsewhere.
