Heut.-col. in the army, and governor, and commander-in-chief of the island

royal sign manual, 6 Dec. 1822; married^ 28 May 1808, lady Elizabeth

Murray, da. of the duke of Atholl, and has issue ; 1. JOHN-ATHOLL-

Though this family have, in the last two
or three generations, assumed the name of
Murray, they are in fact of the race of Mac
Gregor. The royal descent of this most
ancient clan might be traced from the
chronicles of the Scottish kings to the re-
motest antiquity ; but we shall carry it no
further back than prince Gregor, 3d son of
king Alphin, sou of the celebrated Achaius,
king of Scotland, who began to reign 787.
The 5th in descent from him was Gregor
Garubh, or the Stout, who m. a da. of the
ancient house of Lochow, predecessor of
the family of Argyll. He fought under
Duncan I., in his battles against the Nor-
mans and Danes, highly resented the mur-
der of that monarch by Macbeth, and was a
powerful promoter of the restoration of his
son, Malcolm, prince of Cumberland. In
the early part of the 17th century there
happened great animosities between the
Macgregors and the Cokjuhouns, Bucha-
nans and Graemes, which produced several
bloody conflicts ; and their adversaries hav-
ing favour at court, the Macgregors were
persecuted with great fury. To such a
height of ferocity were matters carried, that
a price being set upon the heads of the clan
by the privy council, two of their enemies
who had shared considerably of their estates,
got bloodhounds, with which they hunted
them, devouring and mangling them where-
ever they were found. So keen and power-
ful were the conductors of their destruction,
that a very severe act was made against
them, whereby their name was proscribed,
and all persons were at liberty to mutilate
or slay them without being liable to law ;
nay, encouraged to it by a promise of tlieir
moveable goods and gear. In this situation
the Macgregors contmued till the time of
the solemn league and covenant, which, as
their principal enemies were interested in,
afforded them a respite. They were much
courted to join the confederacy, upon pro-
mises of future friendship : but rebellion
against majesty had ever been detestable to
them, and they declared, '• That as they

bore the croivn on the point of their sivords,
they would not fail to use the latter in sup-
port of the former." Patrick Macgregor
afterwards joined Montrose in support of
the royal cause with above a thousand of
his clan. Mr. Nisbet, in mentioning the
loyalists, says, " The Macgregors also, a clan
inferior to none in bravery and activity, fol-
lowed their chief."

Patrick was in particular esteem with
Montrose, two of whose letters are carefully
preserved, addressed to " His special and
trusty Friend, the honourable Patrick, Laird
ofMacg-regor : " that great man, in the strong-
est terms, expressed his hearty approbation
of his unshaken loyalty, and assured him
that " His Majesty's ajjuirs being once upon
a pernument fioting, the grievances of his fa-
mily and clan shoidd be effectually redressed."
But their chief hopes died with this great
hero ; though they were, in consequence of
their loyalty, restored to their name, by act
of parliament in the reign of Charles II.
Patrick m. Marian, da. of Macdonald, of
Auchatrichatan, chief of the most powerful
tribe of Macdonalds in Glenco, by whom he
had three sons, 1. John; 2. James, a major
in the army, who went to America, where
he in. and acquired a great estate ; he was at
last killed by a party of rebel Indians, but
some of his posterity still flourish near New
York ; 3. Duncan, d. unm. John, the eldest
son, was a steady loyalist ; he m. Ann, da.
of Macgregor of Ross, by whom he had a
son, John, and several other children. John
Macgregor, alias Murray, m. Catharine,
eldest da. of Hugh Campbell, of Lix, esq.,
descended from some of the first families of
Scotland, by whom he had five sons, 1. Ro-
bert; 2. Peter, m. and left a da., Catharine,
w. John (iregorson ; 3. Duncan, rejiresent-
ative of the family, was sorely wounded
at the battle of Prcstonpans 1745 ; he had a
son, John, and a da., Drummond-Mary ;
4. Evan (of whom hereafter) ; 5. John, who
signalized himself at the siege of Car-
thagena 174<t, and in the succeetling war was
killed at Ticonderago. Robert, of Glen-



camock, the eldest son, assumed the name
of Murray, was attached to the interest of
the Stuart family, and had the command of
a regiment of his own clan 1745. The duke
of Cumberland sent to assure them, that if
they would lay down their arms and return
home, they should be restored to their name,
and otherwise favoured by government ; or,
if they would join him, that their com-
manders should have the same rank, and
their promotion be esteemed the peculiar
care of his royal highness. This message
produced a spirited but polite refusal ; and
after the battle of Culloden, the Mavgregors
marched in a body to their own country
with flying colours, and then dispersed in
small parties. Soon afterwards the king's
troops burnt all the houses on Glencamock's
estate, carried off the cattle, &c.

Glencamock having at length surrendered
himself to the duke of Argyll, was, with
the earl of Kelly and others, confined for
several years in the castle of Edinburgh.
He m., 1st, Christian, da. of John Camp-
bell, esq., by whom he had one da.. Chris-
tian, m. capt. John Graham, and had issue ;
2dly, Robma-Jacobina, da. of major Do-
nald Cameron, by whom he had several
children, all of whom d. young, except
John, who went abroad a volunteer under
general lord Loudon, and highly distin-
guished himself upon several commands,
but at the siege of Louisburgh a cannon-
ball carried oft' his head ; 3dly, Mary-Anne,
da. and h. of William Drummond, esq., by
Mary, sister of sir John Miln, governor of
Guernsey, bart., by whom he had no issue.
He d. at Edinburgh, Oct. 1758. We now re-
turn to

Evan, 4th son of John, and brother of
Robert, in whose regiment he was a major,
and suffered exceedmgly in the same cause.
He was afterwards appointed an officer in
the 88th regiment, and served in Germany
with distinguished gallantry. He m. Janet,
