:-[] 3 Celts & Company • "FARQUHARSON"

A branch of Clan Chattan, the Aberdeenshire Farquarsons or MacEarachers descend from Farquhar, son of the Shaw Macintosh of Rothiemurchus, Strathspey, who was awarded lands in Braemar by Bruce, for assistance against the northern Comyns. No such motive could be ascribed the clan for their devotion to the Stewart causes in after centuries. From Farquhar's grandson Finlay comes MacKinlay and some other sept names. The clan extended well into Perthshire, but MacEarachers etc. of around Argyllshire are of Lamont or other origin.

:-[] 3 Celts & Company • "LAMONT"

Clan Siol Eachern: the race of Innes ( 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.
