Allisters of Scotland and Ireland were a branch of the MacDonnells, and took theii'
name from one of their chiefs named Alastrum or Alexander; and as the name
"Sandy" or " Saundei's" is a contraction of "Alexander" some of MacAllisters
have anglicised their names " Saunderson." The MacSheehys, according to Lodge,
were also a branch of the MacDouuells, who came from Scotland to Ireland ; and they
also were celebrated commanders of galloglasses, particularly in Mimster, under the
FitzGeralds, earls of Desmond, Sir Randal MacDonnell, son of Sorley Buighe {Buifihe :
Irish, yelloit), son of Alexander, was created earl of Antrim, by King James the first.

MacDONNELL. (No. 2.)

Earh of Antrim.

Arms : For the ancient Arms of the family see *' MacDonnell" (No. 1) pedigree.

Sir Randal MacDonnell, a younger brother of Sir James, of Dunluce,
county Antrim, who is No. 116 on the (foregoing) "MacDonnell" (No. 1)
pedigree, was the ancestor of MacDonnell^ earls of Antrim.

* Alexander: Sir Alexander MacDonnell, Bart., was born in Belfast in 1794. He
was educated at Westminster and Oxford, where he displayed the most brilliant
abilities, and was called to the English Bar at the age of thirty. In 1839 he was
appointed Resident Commissioner of National Education, of which he became thd
presiding and animating genius. A zealous Protestant, he uniformly sustained the
principle that the faith of the children of his poorer fellow-countrymen should be pro-
tected in the spirit as well as in the letter. He was made a Privy-Councillor in 184S ;
he resigned the Commissionership in 1871, at the age of 77, and was created a baronet
early in the following year. Of him the Spectator said : ..." He was in his daily life
and amongst his friends an example of how high a creature the Celt may become under
the fairest influences of culture ; for, he was a Celt of the Celts, if an ancestry of a
thousand years could make him so." He died on the 2l8t January, 1875, aged 80 years,
and was interred at Kilsharvan, near Drogheda. A beautiful statue has been erected by
his friends and admirers to his memory, oa the ground* at the Education Office (Tyrone
House), Marlborough-atreet, Dublin.

* Randal ; Sir Eandal MacDonnell, first Earl of Antrim, succeeded to the family
estates on the death of his brother James, in 1601. He was known as Arranach, from
having been fostered in the island of Aran. In the autumn of 1602 he abandoned the
cause of Hugh O'Neill, and joined Sir A. Chichester, offering to serve against his former
ally with 500 foot and 40 horse, maintained at his own expense. He was subsequently
knighted by Mountjoy. In 1603, James I. granted him 333,907 acres between Lame
and Coleraine. About 1604 he married Alice, daughter of O'Xeill. His position after
the flight of O'Neill and O'Donnell was very perilous ; but, by devoting himself
entirely to the consolidation and improvement of his estates, his movements, as O'Neill's
son-in-law, ceased to excite the suspicion of the authorities ; and when he had occasion
to visit London, in 1608, he was cordially received at Court. In 1618 he was created
*' Viscount Dunluce," a member of the Privy Council, and Lieutenant of the county
Antrim ; and two years afterwards the title of " Earl of Antrim" was conferred on him.
Besides estates in Ulster, he owned lands on the Scottish coast, the sustainment of his
rights in which gave him at times no little trouble. The Earl died at Dunluce on the
10th December, 1636, and was buried at Bonamargy.

* Marquis : This Eandal, Marquis, and second Earl, of Antrim, was bred in the
Highland way ; " he wore neither hat, cap,^nor shoe, nor stocking, till seven or eight
years old." In 1635 he married the widow of the Duke of Buckingham, who thereupon
returned to Catholicism, which she had renounced on her first marriage. On the
breaking out of the war in Scotland he was appointed by Charles I. one of his lieutenants
and commissioners in the Highlands and Islands. In June, 1640, he took his seat in
the Irish House of Lords, and continued to reside in Dublin until the War 1641 -'52
broke out. On the 26th January, 1644, he received a Marquisate. The Cromwellian
Settlement deprived him of his estates for a time ; but in July, 1666, he was restored to
the possession of 87,086 acres in Dunluce and Glenarm. He died at Ballymagarry on
the 3rd Feb., 1682, and was buried in state in the family vault at Bonamargy.
