PREFACE.



In issuing the third volume of this work, the
authors are much concerned at the long delay that
has occurred in its preparation, and they feel that
an apology is due to their subscribers as well as to
the general public who are interested in the subject.
The protracted interval between Volumes II. and
III. has been due to a variety of causes more or less
connected with the extensive and complex character
of the work, the numerous branches that sprang
from the parent stock — many of them never before
dealt with—and the many sources, public and
private, from which they endeavoured to elicit
authentic information. These and other causes
tended to delay the appearance of the volume to an
extent that was never anticipated by the authors.
Though the volume is in the main genealogical, it is
not entirely so. The first two chapters are taken
up with the history of the House of Sleat, which
the exigencies of space did not allow of being
incorporated in Volume 11. ; the third deals with
the thorny question of the chiefship, and the fourth



Vlll. PREFACE.

takes up more or less exhaustively the social history
of the clan from about the middle of the 16th
century. The Volume also contains chapters on
the Bards of the Clan and other outstanding
Clansmen. The interest and attractiveness of the
volume are greatly enhanced by a number of
portraits and signatures of prominent clansmen.
The authors acknowledge gratefully the kindness
of many representatives of the various families in
placing at their disposal original portraits and
miniatures, and often taking much trouble in sup-
plying reproductions of pictures which, from their
character, were not adapted for removal. Among
these may be mentioned the Right Honourable the
Earl of Antrim, the Right Honourable the Lady
MacdoDald of the Isles, the Honourable Lady
Macdonald of Clanranald, Mrs Macclonald of Sanda,
Miss Macdonald (of Dalchosnie), Barnfield Hill,
Southampton, Mrs Macdonald Stuart of Dalness,
Mrs Head of Liverailort, Mrs Aylmer Morley,
Angus Macdonald of Clanranald, J. R. M. Macdonald
of Largie, Colonel John McDonnell of Kilmore,
J. A. R. Macdonald of Balranald, Allan R. Mac-
donald (of Belfinlay), yr. of Waternish ; Professor
Arthur A. Macdonell of Lochgarry, Oxford ; Dr
Duncan Macdonald, Oban; Alexander Macdonell
Stewart, Lynedoch Place, Edinburgh ; Allan Mac-
donald, LL.D., Glenarm ; and Andrew Macdonald,
Sheriff-Clerk of Inverness-shire.



PREFACE. IX.



The authors also desire gratefully to acknowledge
the assistance rendered by many members of the clan,
and others, who placed family genealogies and relative
records at their disposal, or otherwise helped in the
preparation of this volume. In this connection they
acknowledge their indebtedness to the Honourable
Lady Macdonald of Clanranald, Miss Macdonald of
Dalchosnie, Mrs Head of Inverailort (representative
of Barisdale), Miss Josephine M. Macdonell, London,
Miss Susan Martin of Glendale, Angus Macdonald
of Clanranald, Captain William M. Macdonald, late
of the Cameron Highlanders ; the Rev. R. C.
Macleod of Macleod, Admiral Robertson Macdonald
of Kinlochmoidart, Colonel Martin Martin, Ostaig,
Skye ; Lachlan Macdonald of Skeabost, Dr Keith
Norman Macdonald, Edinburgh ; H. L. Macdonald
of Dunach, Dr Duncan Macdonald, Oban : Allan R.
Macdonald, yr.- of Waternish ; Allan Macdonald,
LL.D., Glenarm ; Graeme A. Maclaverty of
Clianting Hall ; the Hon. William Macdonald,
Senator for British Columbia in the Dominion
Parliament of Canada ; Rev. W. J. MacKain,
Clifton ; Mr Murray Rose ; and the late Evander
Maciver of Scourie.

In a work involving so much minute genealogical
research, errors no doubt have unavoidably crept in;
but these will be found to be few and of little
importance.



X. PREFACE.



The authors desire finally to record their grateful
sense of the never-failing kindness and courtesy of
Mr R. M. Grant, the Manager of the Northern
Chronicle, while the volume was passing through
the press.
