:-[] 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. 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.

:oops::-P:-[] 3 Celts & Company • "MACDONALD (of the Isles)"

Clan Siol Cuinn: the race of Conn - Rory, Donald & Dugall ( the Chief Gallgael ).

Maormorship of ir-Galgael:: Siol Cuinn, Gillevray/Neill/Ewen/Lachlan, Siol Eachern/Lamont, Donnachie/Robertson, Pharlane/Macfarlane.

Greatest and most widespread of all, Clan Donald has its main roots in the old Gaelic and Pictish times, with additions from the Norsemen just when the curtain of history begins lifting on personalities. There is a legendary ancestor Conn of the Battles, but the first clear one is Somerled, the thane of Argyll to become wellnigh an independent king of the 'South Isles' (from Ardnamurchan round to Bute), swaying his naval alliance between the rival powers of Scotland and Norway. In 1135 he availed David I to expel the Norse from Arran and Bute, and eventually fell at Renfew in 1164 when himself invading against Malcolm IV. Of his three sons by a daughter of Olaf, Norse king of the Isle of Man, the eldest founded the MacDougall clan of Lorn, and the next son Raginald or Ranald was ancestor to all the clans that derive name from his eldest son Donald.
[...]MacDonald allegiance to the Scottish crown was now unquestionable--so far as it could be induced or enforced. Bruce at Bannockburn granted the clan their jealously upheld honour of position on right of the Scottish battle-array: and in the following reign Angus Mor's grandson John of Islay reunited the North and South Isles by marrying the MacRorie heiress, and first assumed the Lordship of the Isles[...]After 1493[...]Chiefship shifted to the Sleat branch in Skye, called MacDonalds of the Isles, to distiguish them from the branch-clans.
The numerous sept names have various origins[...] Small clans or families sought or fell under the MacDonald protection, or like the MacBeths took high service with the chiefs.

• "MACDONALD of Clanranald"

Strictly, all the MacDonald clans are of Clan Ranald and were frequently so termed, from Donald's father Reginald or Ranald. Thus some confusion arises when a particular branch-clan adopts that general name,[...] (Specifically of Clanranald) They derive from another Ranald, doubly descended from the first, being a younger son of John, first Lord of the Isles[...]
