Lineag'e. — M'Alester, of The Loupe, is descended in a
direct line from Alasteb, or Alexander, eldest son of Angus
Mob, Lord of the Isles and Kintyre, 128-1.

Alexander acquired large additions to his territories by
marriage with Amie, one of the daus. and co-heirs of Ewin de
Ergadia, but having espoused the cause of Balliol, in opposition
to the claims of Eobert Bruce to the Scottish throne, he was
defeated by that monarch, who besieged him in his principal
stronghold of Castle Swain. Being forced to surrender, he was
imprisoned in Dundonald Castle, where he died. His posses-
sions were bestowed on his younger brother, Angus Oge, who
assumed the Lordship of the Isles, and from whom arc de-
scended the various chieftains of the M'Donald tribes. But the
M'Alesters possessing that^'it.s sanguinis of which noforfeiture
could deprive them, claim to represent the ancient Lords of the
Isles, as lineal descendants and heirs male of Alester, eldest
son of Angus Mor, who was the son of Donald, the son of
Reginald, son of Somerled, Lord of the Isles and Thane of
Argyll 1010, the common ancestor of the clan Donald, clan
Dugall, and clan Alester, known also as the clan Ean-Dubh.
The sons of Alester, with their adherents, being driven from
the Isles, sought refuge on the mainland, and obtained posses-
sion of several strongholds in Knapdaleand Kintyre. On the
overthrow of the dynasty of the Isles, in the reign of James IV.,
1493, they became a separate and independent clan, under
their chief Ean-Dcbh, who fixed his residence at Ardpatrick,
in South Knapdale, and for several generations his descendants
retained the patronymic of Vic-Ean-Dubh. He was s. by his

Charles, appointed Steward of Kintyre 1481. He was s. by
his son,

Angds Vic-Ean-Dcbh, styled also Angus M'Alester, of The
Loupe. He is mentioned in the Eegister of the Privy Seal,
1515, He was s. by his .son,

Alexander, mentioned in Pitcaim's Criminal Trials as
having incurred the penalty of forfeiture for treasonably
abiding from the army of Siilloway, but obtained, in 1540,
remission of the sentence for himself and fifteen of his clan.
He left a son.

Hector M'Alester, who did not long survive. He was s.
by his son,

Alexander M'Alester, who, in 1573, obtained a charter
from Archibald, Earl of Argyll. His name appears on the
EoU as one of those who, by Act of Parliament, were called
upon to deliver hostages, whose lives were to be held respon-
sible for the obedience of their chiefs. At his death, his son
and successor,

Godfrey M'Alester, was yet a minor. In 1591 he obtained
a charter from the Earl of Argyll, and therein is designated

Gorrie M'Eachine Vic-Alester-Vic Ean-Dubh. At an early
age, he became tlie hero of a tragedy still remembered in the
Highlands.the heads of which are given in Pitcaikn's Criminal
Dials. He took an active part in most of the feuds and con-
flicts of the troubled period in which he lived. He closed his
turbulent career about the beginning of the 17th century, and
was buried at lona, in the tomb of his ancestors. His statue,
in black marble, was to be seen there within the last century.
He was ,'i. by his son.

Hector M'Alester, who had charters from the Earl of
Argyll for the lands of Loupe and others, being therein
designated Hector M'Gorry-Vic-Eachine-Vic-Allister-Vic Ean-
Dubh. He m. 11 March, 1G20, Margaret, dau. of Campbell, of
Kilbeny. His son and successor,

Godfrey M'Alester, of Loupe, m. a dau. of Sir Robert
Montgomerie, of Skelmorlie. His son and successor,

to the last, and was engaged at the battles of Killiecrankie and
the Boyne. He m. Jane, dau. of Sir James Campbell, Bart, of
Auchenbreck, by whom he had a numerous family. (The 3rd
