liineagre.— The clan Macdonald, or McDonnell, is un-
doubtedly one of the most ancient in Scotland, and can be
traced back to a period coeval with that of any family in the
kingdom. The first of the race from whom any authentic
account exists, is Somebled, designed by Scottish historians
Thane of Argyll, but by foreign authors and charters extant
King of the Isles, and Lord of Argyll and Kiutyre.
Among his descendants has long been disputed the chieftain-
ship, and many and acrimonious have been the conflicts on the

Reginald Macdonell, son of John Macdonell, Lord of the
Isles, seventh in descent from Somerled, received from his

4 N 2





father a very large estate, as appears from a charter of con-
firmation by King Robert, dateil 1 Jan. 1373. This Ecsinald
Is stated to have been murdered by the Karl of lioss in the
Abbey of Elcho, at Perth, while heading tlie men of the Isles
as their lawful chieftain. He left, with other issue, a son,

Donald Macdonell, of Glengarrj-, who was served heir to
his father in the pi incipal part of his fortune, and became a
powerful baron. He left (with a younger son, Kanald, from
whom descend many of the Macdonnell's of Perthshire), an
elder son and heir, John Macdonnell, of Glengarry, who m.
a dau. of Macleod of Lewes, and was father of Alastair Mac-
donnell, of Glengarry, who m. the only dau. of Slaclean of
Dowart, and had three sons, John, his heir. John (Ire), from
whom many of the Macdonalds of the north are derived; and
-Eneas, from whom came the House of Shcan. The eldest son
and heir, John Macdonnell, of Glengarry, m. a dau. of
Lochiel, chief of the Camerons, and was father of Alexander
3JACD0NELL, of Glengarry, who id. Margaret, dau. of Celestine
