that the Clan MacNicol is not of Danish or Norwegian descent. ,

In connection with this subject we have lately been favoured with the follow- •
ing—

*' Notes anent Clan MacNicol."" t



By William Nicolson, of Millaquin Refinery, Bundaberg, Queensland :

1. The badge of the Clan is a sprig of oak, in memory of their ancestor Daire.
— See O'Hart's Pedigrees; Annals of the Four Masters, &c.

2. The Daireiniaus or Dairinoi have been identified as the Kairinoi of Ptolemy,
and as the Clan now kno\^Ti as MacNicol or Nicolson, anglicd Nicholson.

3. The adoption of the Clan name of O'Niochol or MacNicol was the result of the
fealty of the Daireinians to Brian Boru, who having ordained that every sept should
adopt some particular surname, in order to preserve correctlj' the history and genealogy
of the different tribes, the majority of them adopted that of O'Kiochol, one of their
chiefs celebrated to this day for his unbounded hospitality. Niochol is No. 91 on the
Stem of the Clan.

4. Clan MacNeachtain, now MacNaughten, and Clan MacNeachdail now MacNicol
or Nicolson, have from time immemorial been in such close contact, that they have
often had their chief in common, and their Tartan is so remarkably similar as to point
out some special reason for the close affinity existing between them. O'Dugan names
O'Taireceirt (Daire) as chief of Clanna Neachtain ; and in the Annals of the Four
Masters, O'Taireceirt is given also as chief of Clanna Snedgile, otherwise SnackroU :
Snackroll being Nicol or Nicolson.

5. The persistence of some Nicolsons as to Danish descent, and the equally per-
sistent assertion of other Nicolsons as to the Irish lineage of the Clan cap be satisfac-
torily accounted for, and these apparently contradictory statements reconciled : For
example — Ottar Snedgile, or Snackroll, or Nicolson, an Irish prince and Earl of the
Western Hebrides, became King over the Danes in Dublin, from a.d. 1146 to 1148, by
choice of the Danes to whom he was allied by ties of relationship, and there are other
instances of the sort ;— moreover, the settlement of Nicolsons in Cumberland and in
Northumberland appears to be directly traceable to the period when Irish princes
formed matrimonial alliances with the princesses of Danish lineage ; — nevertheless,
in spite of the Danish affinities of some of the chiefs of Clan MacNicol or O'Niochol,
the majority of the Nicolsons seem to have fought for Brian Boru at Clontarf.

6. In the year 1204, Sitrig O'Sruithen, Archineach of Congbhala, chief of Clan
Congbhala, chief of Clan Snedgile, died and was buried in the church built by him-
self. It would appear that in him Fuileadh, No. 105 on the Stem of the Nicolsons
(Fuileadh the destitute), lost a friend and protector. Giollareigh was the next chief of
Clan Snedgile and of Clan Fingin, but who are Clanna Fingin ?

105. Fuileadh, the destitute, 106. Erblile, and 107. Sdacail, the Estate loser, were
aU contemporaries of and near of kin to the celebrated Andrew Nicolson who was, as
was Ottar Snackoll, a Hebridean chief and high in authority amongst the Danish
princes. Fuileadh, Erblile, and Sdacaill appear to have been on the Irish because
losing side in Clan matters : hence the flight and destruction that portion of the Clan,
from time to time removing from Ireland and settling in Skye, in Cumberland, in
Northumberland, &c., becoming of necessity increasingly allied to the Danish party.
Even the names of the members of the Stem of the Nicolsons, as traced by O'Hart,
prove this solution of the Irish and Danish traditions of the Clan MacNicol to be
correct.

101. Fogail the fugitive.

102. Muireadach at the time of the death of Sitrig O'Sruithen was, as his name
implies, a chief of Clan MacNicol or Snedgile, who had taken to a sea-fearing life, and

was probably supporting himself and his adherents by piracy with the help of Danish
allies.

103. Arailt, or Harold his son, as his name implies must have had a Danish mother,
for " Harold" is not an Irish name ; his mother was most probably a Dublin Danish
princess.

104. Erlile, his son, was probably reared in Skye ; for in his youthful days the
country of the O'Niochol in Ireland was ravaged by English and Irish alike. In a.d.
1212 Giolla Fialach O'Boyle, with a party of the Kinnel Connell, plundered some of the
Kiuel Owen, who were under the protection of the OTaireceirt. O'Taireceirt over-
took them, and in the conflict which ensued, was slain.

105. Fuileadh, his son : of the period in which he lived the Four Masters write
that then no man spared his neighbour, but took advantage of his misfortunes, and
spoiled and plundered him ; and that many women, children, and helpless persons
perished of cold and famine during the wars of this period. Nor were matters any more
favourable to him and his clansmen in Syke, where the Nicolsous were appealing to
Norwegians and Danes for help against the Scots of the mainland, who continually
made incursions into the Western Hebrides, slaying women and children, even placing
babes on the points of their spears and shaking them till they were pierced through
and fell down the shaft of the spears to their hands, when they threw them away life-
less. These horrible excesses led to King Hacon's Expedition, and at Largs Andrew
Nicolson, one of the most gigantic men of his day, fought at the head of a body of
Danes and Norwegian and Skye men, gaining for himself renown which lasts to this
day. It is recorded that prior to the battle he cut down one of his foes slicing him in
halves lengthways, i.e. from the crown of his head to the seat in the saddle, so that
his adversary dropped instantly half on one side of the horse he was riding, and half
on the other side. In spite of prodigies of valour the Skyemen, Danes, and Norwegians
were routed, but under Andrew Nicolsou's guidance (he being in command of Hacon's
fleet) they reassembled in Skye where the allies were abundantly supplied with
provisions.

Here then in the history of the times we have the clue to the Irish and Danish
traditions of Clan MacNicol — Fogail, the fugitive, becomes such by reason of his
unsuccessful opposition to Invaders of Ireland — Muireadach, his son, seeks on the waters
the safety he cannot find on land, and thenceforward the Nicolsons and Danes are
closely allied.

From the time of Sdacail, the Estate loser, dates, we believe, the foUowingpro verb : —
Bumasdair de chlann Mhic Neachdaill agus amadan de chlann Mhic Cuin.
(A fool of the Nicholsons and an idiot of the McQuinn) ;
A proverb evidently fixing some event in the career of the chiefs of each Clan,
whereby the Clan rights were prejudicially affected by them as representatives of the
septs.

This view of the case is confirmed by the fact of the well known break, here
occuring in the chief ship of Clan MacNicol, i.e.

108. Torstan McLeod, contemporary with 105, Fuileadh.

109. Torcin : his son ; contemporary with 106. Erlile.

110. Torcill : his son ; contemporary with 107, Sdacaill.

This Torcill is the Torcill who married the heiress of the Nicolson chiefs, whose
family in the male line became, according to Fullarton, at that date extinct. And it is
important to note that the son of Torcill and of this heiress is named Seaill, probably

I. and II. j was thrice married and

125. Malcolm: his son; Chief of
his Clan ; married the poetess Mary-
MacLeod, sister of John Garbh

her named Neil.

the original form of the name of Sdacaill the Estate loser. It is evident that the
peculiar form of the genealogy in the original Gaelic : —

Scalll, ic Torcill, ic Totin, ic Torstain McSdacaill, ic Erlile 0'' Fuileadh, ic Erlile
MacArailt, ic Muireadach, ic Fogail, is intended to convey some such solution of the
succession as this : —

Scaill the first then has his dynasty perpetuated in Scaill the second, — Scaill being
the true form of the name. That there is nothing farfetched in the hypothesis above
advanced will be clear to all \^ ho are familiar -witli Celtic and Hebraic play upon the
pronounciation and signification of names. O'Hart gives Nicail or Kicolto be equiva-
lent of one who ^^ loseth not \' i.e. Scaill and Sdacaill to be equivalent to "Estate
loser.'" Sdacaill's Heiress knew all this and named her son accordingly ; — just as in the
case of Jesus of Nazareth, those who believe him to be the Messias call him Jeschua, but
the Jews rejecting him call him Jeschu. Thej^ carefully leave out the " a, " because by
so doing they indicate that he could not save himself much less save his people ;
moreover, by omitting the "a" the Cabbalists were able to give an evil significance to
the name : the remaining letters being held forth as equivalent to " His name and
remembrance shall perish."

Lastly, upon the foregoing basis sundry difficulties of chronology are removed, and
all the conflicting elements of the Clan history are reconciled. Moreover, the reason
for Torcill's son by the Heiress being named Scaill, as a per contra to Sdacaill, is the
more evident on comparison of Celtic land laws with the record contained in Numbers
XXXVI.

No. 95. Tore Athcliath : It is supposed that the Castle of Athcliath, near Sligo,
demolished in a.d. 1317, was built by Tore.

No. 69. Con-a-cille : From a careful comparison of dates and periods of generation,
it becomes evident that Con-a-cille was contemporary with Laeghaire McNiall, first
Christian King of Ireland ; and that he gained his name by reason of his church
building for Saint Patrick, by whose ministry he was converted.

73. Cobthach Fionn (fair-haired victor) probably acquired soubriquet under Fergus
Mdr jNIac Earca when that foimder of the Milesian Monarchy in Scotland went
thither to fight the Picts. He would certainly head a substantial army of Daireinians
who could at no other date have had sufficient motive for emigrating from Ireland to
Scotland in sufficient numbers to found the colony of Dairinoi or Kairinoi, since iden-
tified as the Clan MacNicol. — See my Notes, 1, 2 & 3, supra.

88. Niochol Snackoll Snedgile : That the Clan was divided at Ciontarf seems
certain. Brian Boru declined the offer of troops made by the King of Ulster in con-
sequence of former feuds between them, but accepted the aid of Sitrig, the Dane,
against the Danes ; and as Tore Athcliath (or Tore of Dublin) was certainly one of
Brian Bora's supporters, and as Sitrig is a name not unf requent in Nicolson genealogies,
the inference may be justifiable that this Sitrig and Tore were kinsmen.

101. Fogail the fugitive : Excepting that the Four Masters mention the O'Taire-
ceirt heads of Clan MacNicol or Sneidgile as patriots, I have found nothing to show
which of the chiefs opposing the English Invasion Fogail could have been.

* Eoiyi : According to some records the three names between this Eoin and
Donald, No. 124, are as follows :— No. 121 Nicaill (3) ; No. 122, Andreas; and No.
123, Nicaill (4). This Nicaill (4), who was called the "Outlaw," had a son No. 124,
who was called Donald Mor, who had a son William, No. 125. It would _ however,
appear that the members of this Clan had a great partiality for marrying into their
own families ; from which cause the names of the sons-in-law, in those three generations
may have been inserted for those of the sons, or, vice versa : being of the same sirname.
