Iiineagre.— The Mac Debmots, the O'Conors, and other
powerful families derived a common origin from Murryach,
sumamed Mullathan, who reigned over Connaught in the 7th
century. The Mac Dermots were possessed of a large territory
known as "Mac Dermot's Country," including a considerable
portion of the cos. of Koscommon and Sligo, and some dis-
tricts in Mayo, until deprived of the greater part of their
patrimony by the confiscations which followed the CromwcUian
and Williamite wars.

Maolbhna Mob, brother of Connor, King of Connaught,
described in the ancient annals as " Prince of Moylurgh," was
Vaa prepositiis of the race as distinguished from the O'Conor
or elder branch descended from the above mentioned Conor.
His (Maolruna's) son led the sept at the battle of Clontarf in

Dermot or Diaemaid {dia, god ; armaid, of arms), was the
lineal descendant of Maolruna in the sixth generation. He d. in
1165, distinguished alike for valour and wisdom, and was s. by
his son,

CoNOB Mac Debmot or Macdiabmaid, son of Dermot, with
whom the surname Mac Dermot thus originated. He was s. by
his son,


from the fortress he built in 1204 on the island in Lough Key,
Hear his chief mansion-house, called from that fortress. Port-
na-Carrige. The direct filiations between him and Bryan 3Iac
Dermot next mentioned are Cormac, Conor, Gilla-Christ(ramc.-
i-as Christi), Maalrony, Tomoltach, Conor Hugh, Eoderick,
Teig, Eoderick, who d. in 1540, and was .■!. by his son,

Bryan Mac Debmot, Chief and Prince of Moylurg, m. Sarah,
dau. of O'Conor Sligo, and niece of O'Donel, Prince of Tyr-
connel, and was father of

Bbvan Mac Debmot, the younger, of Carrige Mac Dermot,
the family seat, now Eockingham, in the possession of the
King-Harmans. Bryan being under age at the time of his
father's death, the family patrimony was put in wardship, and
in the Patent Rolls of the 3rd year of the reign of James I.
he is described in connection with this wardship as chief of his
name. In the 13th year of the same reign a grant by patent
was made him of the lordships, manors, and advowsons, com-
prising Rockingham, in the Barony of Boyle, and large terri-
tories in the cos. of Roscommon and Sligo. This patent,
nchly illuminated, covers sixteen skins of parchment, and is in
the possession of the present Mac Dermot of Coolavin, together
with the articles entered into upon the marriage of the same
Bryan with Margaret Burke, of Clanricksrde. He had issue
by her, two sons, Terence and Cliarles. Terence, who d. iinm.,
by indented deed, dated 1640, assigned the family patrimony,
including 389 quarters, to his brother,

Chables Mac Debmot, of Port-na-Carrige, styled Cathal Roe,
•who became Chief and Prince of Moylurg, and m. Eleanor,

• The family title was originally Prince of Moylurg, Tir-
oilel, Airteach and Clancuain, as may be learned from the
books of Lecan, Balltmotb, and Kilionan, and the annals of
Lough Key, the writings of Doctor O'Conob, Burke's Uibemia
Dortiinicana, &c. Driven from his ancient patrimony during
the Cromwellan wars, the tlien chief of the race removed to
Coolavm, on the shores of Lough Gara. This title has since
been territorially connected with the portion of the family
possessions which escaped confiscation. It is one of the few
Irish titles stUl surviving, and has been distinctively borne by
the chief of the name for a period extending over eight ccn-
; tunes.

youngest dau. of O'Mulloy, of TJghterera, co. Roscommon.
During the Cromwellian wars this Charles was an active
adherent of the Stuart cause, which led to the forfeiture of the
chief part of his patrimony. Driven from his fortress of The
Rock, he removed to Coolavin, on the shores of Lough Gara.
In 1689, his eldest son, Hugh, garrisoned Sligo at his own
expense in the interests of James II., and in Sept. 1090, he was
again restored to the family inheritance. The order under
which he was restored to possession is dated Sept. 1690 ; it
bears the signature of Theobald, Viscount Dillon, as Lord-
Lieut, of the CO. of Roscommon, and it directs possession to be
given him, Charles, of the Castle of Carrige Mac Dermot, the
Castle and Stronghold of Conbo, and other lands which are
therein described as his "Ancient Inheritance." This docu-
ment is in the possession of The Mac Dermot of Coolavin.
After the battle of Aughrim, where his son, Hugh, fought, and
was taken prisoner, he was again driven from Roscommon. He
was s. by his eldest son,

Hugh Mac Debmot, of Coolavin, m. Elizabeth Kelly, of the
family of Aughrim, and had a son and successor,

Chables Mac Debmot, of Coolavin, m. Catharine Dillon, of
the family of Clonbrock, and was s. by his son,

Xiineage. — The first of the race of whom any authentic
account exists is So.meeled, designated by Scottish historians
Thane of Argyll, but by foreign authors and charters extant,
King of the Isles, and Lord of Argyll and Kintyre. He m.
the dau. of Walter Stewart, Earl of Atholl, brother of Robert
II, and was s. by his son,

day, m. Florence, dau. of the Lord of Ardnamurchan, and
was s. by his son,

Eanau), who m. a dau. of Lord Lovat, and was s. by his

Ranald Macdonald, designated Ranald Gald, who, with his
grandfather, Lovat, was driven from his inheritance by a ri.sing
of the clan, which declared his cousin John, the son of Alex-
ander and grandson of Allan M'Eory, chieftain. This insur-
rection led to the celebrated battle of Blairleine, fought between
the Frasers and Macdonalds in July, 1554, in which the former
were defeated, and Lovat, together with his eldest son, Simon,
and Banald Macdonald himself, were slain. BanaldGald never
til., but left three natural sons, Allan, John, and Alexander,

who received from the Crown a charter of legitimation, 13
June, 1555. The victory of Blairleine secured the dignity of
chief to

John Macdonald, of Moydart, son, as above-mentioned of
Alexander, and grandson of Allan M'Rory. This distinguished
chieftain, Capt. of Clanranald, during the unsettled govern-
ment of Queen Mart,™. 1st, Mariatte M'ICane, and by her had,

a son and successor,

JoDN Macdonald, of Clanranald, who powerfully .supported
King Charles against the Covenanters, and gallantly fought
under Montrose. He survived to witness the Eestoration and
paid his respects to King Charles on his landing in the shire
of Moray, 1660. He then retired to the Island of Uist, and d.
at an advanced age, 1670, leaving by Moir his wife, dau. of
Mac Leod, of Mac Leod, three daus., Moir, wife of Lauchlan
Mac Lean of Coll ; Catherine, m. M'Neill, of Barra ; and Ann,
m. Ranald Mac Donald, of Benbecula; a son and successor,

Donald Macdonald, of Clanranald, who had served with
his father in the memorable campaigns of Montrose. At
Kilsyth, a gallant charge made by young Clanranald decided
the victory, and after the iU fated issue of Philliphaugh,
Donald, staunch to his royal master, marched to Islay against
the Campbells. In 1648, at the head of a considerable force,
he joined the Earl of Antrim in Ireland, and was engaged in
all the engagements in that kingdom until the defeat of the
king's army in the Queen's co., where he and Glengarry were
taken prisoners. Clanranald m. Marion, dau. of John Mac
Leod, of Mac Lood, and had, with a dau., Margaret, m. Donald
Macdonald, of Benbecula, two sons, Allan, his heir, and
Ranald, successor to his brother. He d. 1686, and was s. by
his son,

Allan Macdonald, of Clanranald, who, firm to the cause of
the Stuarts, summoned his clan in aid of Dundee, and with
his tutor, Macdonald of Benbecula, mainly contributed to the
victory of Killiecrankie. When all hope of success for King
James expired, young Clanranald refused to take the oaths to
the new Government, and retired with his brother, Ranald, to
France, where ho completed his education, and became one of
the most accomplished gentleman of his time. After residing
some years at the Court of St. Germain's, he obtained a com-
mission under the Duke of Berwick, and in a foreign land, and
in a foreign service, preserved his name unsullied. When
peace was restored, he went again to St. Germain's and thence
returned to Scotland, and fixed his residence at Ormiclate
House, in South Uist. In this, one of the remotest of the
Western Isles, he hoped to enjoy rest and tranquillity after the
storms and vici.ssitudes of his early life. But the calm was
of brief continuance. No sooner had the Earl of Mar raised
his standard in 1715 than Clanranald hastened from Uist with
his followers, and summoning his vassals of Arisaig and
Moydart, joined the Chevalier's army with a considerable
force. In all the subsequent operations he took part, and at
length sealed his devotion to the Stuart cause by his heroic
death at Sheriffmuir, leading the right wing of Mar's army.
On that fatal occasion it was that Glengarry, stepping forward,
exclaimed " Revenge to day, mourning to-morrow." Clanra-
nald was universally esteemed and respected by friend and foe,
and his memory is still fondly cherished in the Highlands. He
m. while in France, Penelope, dau. of Col. Makenzie, Governor
of Tangier under Charles II., but had no issue. His brother
and heir,

Eanald Macdonald, d. unm. at St. Germain's, 1725, when
the succession devolved on his cousin,





Donald Macdonald, of Bcnbecula. who took no partin the
insurrection of '15, but resided in retirement at Benbecula,
until, at the decease of Ranald, he became chieftain, as nearest
heir male. He m. 1st, Margaret, dau. of Donald Macdonald,
of Clanranald, by whom he had a son, Ranald, his heir, and
2ndly, Margaret, dau. of George Mackenzie, Esq. of Kildun,
by whom he had Alexander, who obtained the estate of
Boisdale, and Anne, wife of Lochlan M'Kinnen, of Strathura-
dale. Clanranald d. 1730, and was s. by his son,

Ranald Macdonald, of Clanranald, b. 1692 ; to. Margaret,
d.iu. of William Sl.acleod, of Bernera, and had two sons and
one dau., Ranald, his heir ; Donald, an officer of high reputa-
tion in the British service, killed with Gen. Wolfe at Quebec ;
and Margaret, who d. unm. The eldest son,

Ranald Macdo.vald, was educated at .St. Germain, and was
considered at the French Court, from his position as the
principal West Highland Chief, a man of importance to assist
any French designs on that coast. Prince Charlie was
directed on leaving France to communicate with him, and
went first to South Uist, and then to the mainland, where he
found him. The Chief, finding he was without arms or funds,
urged him to return to France, but by the evil advice of other
chiefs in the district he would not do so. These chiefs and
others received bonds from I'rince Charlie, but Clanranald
never would receive anything. Ho led his Clan at the battle
of Gladsmuir, and at the maicli into Fiigland when not at the
side of the Piincc. He gave a large bond to enable the army
to leave Edinburgh. Being attainted he had to fly to France
after Culloden, where lie was badly wounded. He was
appointed A.D.C. to Marshal Saxc, and was charged with
conveying the ncrts of the Marshal's death to Louis XV. In
1770, in consequence of his attainder having been made as
Donald in lieu of Ranald, he claimed restitution of his estates,
which he obtained some time after, but he found them in utter
disorder, they having been occupied for several years by a
regiment of Hessians, in consequence of the active and im-
portant part taken by Clanranald. Shortly after he, in con-
junction with Lord Macdonald (who had not taken part in the
recent wars), raised a regiment which was eventually, as the
84th, disbanded in Nova Scotia. He m. 1st, Mary, dau. of
Lord Basil Hamilton (younger son of the Duke of Hamilton),
eventually Earl of Selkirk, and by her, who d. 11 May,
1750, he had one son, Charles James Soinerlcd, who d.
1756, aged 5. He m. 2ndly, Flora Mackiunon, dau. of the
