:-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.

:-[] 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.
