:-[] 3 Celts & Company • "KEITH"

In the time of David I, Hervey de Keith possessed half of the lands named Keith in SW East Lothian, and his great-grandson acquired the other half by marrying its Fraser heiress. As hereditary Grand Marischals of Scotland, the chiefs took a prominent part in the country's affairs and battles, and attained vast possessions, pricipally northwards. About 1390, Sir William Keith was the builder of historic Dunottar Castle as his main seat; and in 1593 the fifth Earl Marischal founded the famous Marischal College of Aberdeen. The tenth and last earl forfeited title and all estates for active support of the Old Chevalier in 1715. The numerous Dicksons of the Border and Dixons in England descend from one of the early Keith-Marischal.

:-[] 3 Celts & Company • "LAMONT"

Clan Siol Eachern: the race of Innes. Mac Dúbhghaill Creaginnis/Dugald of Craignish/Campbell of Argyle, Clan Lamond. ( Angus mac Erc ).

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.
