Mackintosh, Alfred Donald, of Mackintosh,

liineage.— The family of Mackintosh, into which Eva,
only dau. and heir of Doogal Phaol, Captain of the clan
Chattan, to. 1282, is deduced from Suaw or Sheagii, 2nd son
of Duncan McDuff, the 2nd of thutname, and 3rd Earl of Fife.
This Shaw or Sheagh being sent by King Malcolm IV., in the
year 1163, to repress a rebellion in Morayland, which he
effected in a most signal manner, was rewarded with the
Constabulary of the Castle of Inverness, and from his residence
among the people of the country, who spoke the Gaelic only,
was called Mac-in-tosh-ich, that is to say, Thane's son. or the
principal and first man in dignity in the country, and so
became the first of the name and tlie progenitor of a long line
of chiefs, as is very obvious from the present one being the
25th chief of that name, and 21st of the clan Chattan. Two
of the chiefs had the honour of knighthood; Lachlan, the
17th Laird, who was knighted by King Charles, and was
made a Knight of the Bedchamber; and iEneas, the 23rd
Laird, who was created a Baronet by George III.

William Mackintosh, of that ilk, eldest son and heir of
Angus and Eva his wife, heir of the clan Chattan, was
designed Captain ofthe clan Chattan, and added to the ancient

armorial hearings of the family, " Or, a lymphaasa.,"forcIau
Chattan. He was first of this family who had possession of
the Barony of Moy, and had also, from John Pilmore, Bishop
of Murray, a new lease of Rothiemurchus, dated 19 March,
1347. His son,

Malcolm Mackintosh (heir to his nephew), joined the Lord
of the Isles, and was one of the chief commanders at the battle
of Harlow, 1411, and for his services that day gotconfirmed to
him the right and possession of the lands of Glenroy and
Glenspean; in Brae-Locliaber, &c. In 1428, he was appointed
by KingJAMEsl. Constable and Keeper of the Castle of Inver-
ness, which he nobly defended the same year against Alex-
ander, Earl of Ross, who beseiged it. From him derived in
direct descent.

Sir Lauchlan Mackintosh, made by King James VI.
Heritable Steward of Locliaber, and appointed by him one of
