Lineage. — The Macneills, or Clanneill, are one of the
most ancient clans in the West Highlands, and were at a very
early period divided into two great families, the Macneilis
of Gi'jha and the Macneills of Ba.rra.

The former of these families had their possessions in the
Southern part of co. Argyll, the latter in the island of Barra,
in CO. Inverness, and from the great distance which separated
them, as well as from other causes, the two families were
so disunited as almost to form distinct clans. It is stated,
however, that there is documentary evidence to show that the
Macneills of Gigha were the senior family, and were, di jure,
chiefs of the whole clan.

Macneill, of Taynish, by Ann Montgomery his wife, and the
