  • Marriage*: Sir James MacDonald IX, 2nd Baronet of Sleat married Mary MacLeod, daughter of Ian 'Mor' MacLeod of MacLeod, 16th Chief and Sybella MacKenzie, on 8 December 1675 in Scotland.5
  • Death*: Sir James MacDonald IX, 2nd Baronet of Sleat died on 8 December 1678 in Scotland.6
  • Biography*: He was the son of Janet, commonly called "fair Janet," second daughter of Kenneth Mackenzie, 1st Lord Mackenzie of Kintail and Sir Donald Gorme Macdonald, 8th Laird of Sleat. James Mor Macdonald joined the Marquis of Montrose in 1645, and when Charles II of Scotland marched into England in 1651. He died December 8, 1678.

    Sir James Macdonald, 2nd Baronet of Sleat, had just succeeded his father, in 1644, when civil war broke out in the British Isles. At the time the population of his estates was estimated to have been about 12,000, and in consequence he would have been a power to be reckoned with within the Highlands. According ot A and A Macdonald, it seems that the baronet had not been very enthusiastic for the royal cause. In the autumn of 1644, when Alasdair MacColla arrived on the west coast, with Irish auxiliaries supplied by the Marquess of Antrim, he offered command to Sleat, yet Sleat declined the offer. Following the battle at Inverlochly, Montrose marched northwards. Shortly before the Battle of Auldearn, Montrose wrote to the Laird of Grant, informing him that, among others, 400 of the baronet's men had joined him. It is unknown who led the Macdonald of Sleat contingent, or what part they played in the campaign. A and A Macdonald considered it probably that the Sleat men fought under the command of the baronet's brother, Donald Macdonald of Castleton. The Sleat men continued with the campaigning following the defeat at the Battle of Philiphaugh. They took part in the siege of Inverness. When the king surrendered to the Scottish Army at Newark, and ordered Montrose to disband his forces, the Sleat men returned home to Skye and Uist. The baronet then made terms with the Committee of Estates, for himself and his principal followers who had taken part in the insurrection.

    The Duke of Hamilton marched down to recover the king. The Hebridean men had mustered in large numbers and were a part of the force which was defeated at the Battle of Preston in 1648. After the expedition had failed, the engagers were replaced in the Government by a new Committee of Estates, with Argyll at their head. In 1649, the baronet was cited to find caution for good behaviour. The baronet took no notice. In the summer of 1650, Charles II arrived in Scotland and was crowned at Scone. In expectation of Cromwell's advance, he appealed for support to his Highland supporters. The baronet was given a commission to levy a regiment on his estates in Uist and Skye-which was completed in January, 1651 and then marched to support the king. At the Battle of Worcester they formed a part of the Highland wing of the army. The Sleat men and the Macleods suffered severely in the battle, and only a remnant ever returned to their homes in the isles. After the defeat, the king fled to the continent, and the baronet made peace with Commonwealth of Scotland. Later the baronet refused to aid the Earl of Glencairn and others in 1653. He was hard pressed by his former allies, notably Glengarry who was a noted loyalist. The 2nd baronet died in 1678 and was succeeded by his eldest son, Donald Macdonald, 3rd Baronet of Sleat.9

  • Birth*: Sir Roderick MacKenzie of Castle Leod, Tutor of Kintail was born in 1579 in Kintail, Ross & Cromarty, Scotland.1,2
  • Marriage*: He married Margaret MacLeod, daughter of Torquil 'Conanach' MacLeod of Lewes and Margaret MacDonald, circa 6 May 1605 in Scotland.4
  • Death*: Sir Roderick MacKenzie of Castle Leod, Tutor of Kintail died in September 1626 in Scotland.2
  • Biography*: Progenitor of the Earls of Cromarty.

    He lived at Tarbat, Scotland. He lived at Coigach, Scotland. He lived at Castle Leod, Strathpeffer, Ross-shire, Scotland. He was invested as a Knight before 1619 for pacifying the Highlands.

    In the early seventeenth century the main chieftainship line of the Clan MacLeod of Lewis became extinct, and the chieftainship passed to the MacLeods of Raasay. Later the Lewis MacLeod clansmen were forced to accept the ascendancy of their cousins at Dunvegan and the two MacLeod clans became one. As a result the Barony of Lewis fell into the hands of the chief of the Clan MacKenzie. The last chief of the MacLeods of Lewis had married a daughter of the MacKenzie chief. The MacKenzie chief thereby claimed the barony of Lewis as his own. However, the MacLeod clansmen prospered under the chieftainship of the Clan MacLeod of Skye.

    The castle was granted to John of Killin, 10th Chief of Clan MacKenzie (1485-1561) after he fought at the Battle of Flodden. The castle was passed to his great-grandson Kenneth Mackenzie, 1st Lord Mackenzie of Kintail, who granted it in 1608 to his brother Sir Roderick "Rorie" Mackenzie. In 1605 Sir Roderick married Margaret MacLeod, heiress of Torquil MacLeod of Lewis, bringing her immense wealth into the family and also settling the feud between the MacLeods and the Mackenzies Castle history

    The castle is believed to have been built on the site of a very ancient Pictish fort from before the 12th century. The current castle is the result of work carried out in the early 17th century by Sir Roderick Mackenzie, the ancestor of the Earl of Cromartie. The castle has remained the seat of the Earls of Cromartie ever since.over the Barony of Coigach, which thus passed into the Mackenzie family.1,2,5

    Biography
    In 1595 he went to Ireland with 500 of his clan to assist Hugh Roe O'Donnell with his war against the English. Upon his return he became involved in a feud with his Brother-in-law Donald Gorm MacDonald, who was Chief of the powerful Clan MacDonald of Sleat. The two clans had fought together in Ireland and had now become enemies when for some reason MacDonald rejected his wife, Sir Roderick's sister, and became very hostile towards his old allies. After a year of feuding the two Clans finally met in the Battle of Coire Na Creiche and the MacLeods were defeated. This was the last Clan battle on the Isle of Skye.

    In December 1597, an act of the Estates was passed that required that all the Chieftains and Landlords of the Highlands and the Western Isles to produce their title-deeds under pain of forfeiture. Roderick ignored the act and a gift of his estates were given to a number of Fife gentlemen for the purpose of colonisation. After these attempts were dealt with he was ultimately successful getting a remission from King James VI of Scotland dated 4 May 1610 for his lands of Harris, Dunvegan and Glenelg.

  • Burial*: He was buried after 27 February 1611.1
  • Biography*: He held the office of Hereditary Constable of the Castle of the Bishop of Ross in 1595. He was invested as a Privy Counsellor (P.C.) [Scotland] in February 1595/96. He was created 1st Lord Mackenzie of Kintail [Scotland] on 17 November 1609. He held the office of Justice of the Peace (J.P.) for Inverness-shire in 1610. He held the office of Justice of the Peace (J.P.) for Nairn-shire in 1610. He held the office of Justice of the Peace (J.P.) for Cromarty in 1610. He held the office of Justice of the Peace (J.P.) for Elgin in 1610. He held the office of Justice of the Peace (J.P.) for Fife in 1610.

    Kenneth Mackenzie, the first Lord Mackenzie of Kintail (c.1569-1611), was a Highland clan chief who secured for himself and his heirs the entirety of the island of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides and successfully pursued a bloody feud with the Macdonells of Glengarry.

    Origins
    Mackenzie was the son of Colin Cam Mackenzie of Kintail (died 1594) and Barbara, daughter of John Grant of Grant. The Mackenzies were a clan from Ross-shire that had risen to prominence in the 15th century during the disintegration of the Lordship of the Isles.

    Political advancement
    On 9 November 1594, soon after his father’s death, Mackenzie made oath in presence of the King and the Privy Council that he would "faithfully, loyally, and truly concur, fortify, and assist his Majesty's Lieutenant of the North with his advice and force at all times and occasions as he may be required by proclamations, missive letters, or otherwise."

    Under date of 18 February, 1595-1596, there is an entry in the records of the Privy Council that Kenneth Mackenzie of Kintail "being elected and chosen to be one of the ordinary members" of the Council, and being personally present, makes faith and gives oath in the usual manner. Mackenzie’s connections to central government were to prove invaluable to him in the turbulent times that lay ahead. He proved himself to be a masterful political operator but even he had to deal with potentially serious setbacks and the Privy Council’s records show that he was on at least one occasion imprisoned in Edinburgh Castle.

    Mackenzie was one of the eight Lesser Barons who constituted the Lords of the Articles in the Scottish Parliament which met for the first time on 17 June 1609. Although he was raised to the peerage on 19 November 1609, by the title of Lord Mackenzie of Kintail, he was not so designated in the Privy Council Records until 31 May 1610, when the patent of his creation was read and received by their Lordships, and he was thereupon acknowledged to be a free baron in all time coming. Mackenzie’s peerage accompanied his final triumph in his long campaign for the island of Lewis.

    The conquest of Lewis
    Mackenzie’s greatest opportunity arose from an internecine struggle within the Macleods of Lewis. Roderick “Old Ruari” Macleod of Lewis (c.1500-c.1595) divorced his wife, Janet (the daughter of John Mackenzie of Kintail and therefore Kenneth Mackenzie’s great-aunt), and disowned his son by her, Torquil Cononach Macleod. By another wife, Roderick had another son, Torquil Dubh Macleod. After Roderick’s death, Torquil Dubh retained Lewis, but Torquil Cononach (who had the support of central government) held the mainland Macleod estates at Coigach and Loch Broom. Torquil Cononach had no sons. His daughter and co-heir, Margaret, married Mackenzie’s brother, Roderick (progenitor of the Earls of Cromartie), and the Mackenzies accordingly took up his cause against Torquil Dubh.

    In 1596/7, Mackenzie complained to the king of attacks made by Torquil Dubh on Coigach and Loch Broom. When Torquil Dubh failed to appear before the Privy Council on 11 February 1596/7, he was denounced as a rebel and Mackenzie obtained a commission of fire and sword against him. Torquil Dubh’s rights to Lewis were forfeited and he himself was captured and beheaded in July 1597. Torquil Cononach surrendered his rights in Lewis to Mackenzie and identified Roderick Mackenzie as his heir in respect of Coigach and Loch Broom.

    However, a new obstacle to Mackenzie’s campaign of self-aggrandisement now arose. In 1598, Lewis was granted to the Fife adventurers, with the professed object of civilizing the inhabitants. Their colonising efforts over the next several years met with vigorous local resistance, which was intermittently and discreetly assisted by Mackenzie.

    At a meeting of the Privy Council, held at Edinburgh on 30 September 1605, Mackenzie received a commission to act for the King against Neil MacNeill of Barra, the Captain of Clanranald, and several other Highland and Island chiefs, who had "of late amassed together a force and company of the barbarous and rebellious thieves and limmers of the Isles," and with them entered Lewis, "assailed the camp of his Majesty's good subjects," and "committed barbarous and detestable murders and slaughters upon them." Mackenzie was in consequence commissioned to pursue these offenders with fire and sword, by sea or land. This was the beginning of Mackenzie’s conquest of Lewis.

    Mackenzie received another commission in Lewis on 1 September 1607 against Neil Macleod, another of Old Ruari’s sons, who was conducting a guerilla campaign against the Fife adventurers and had recently captured the Castle of Stornoway. This commission was to continue in force for six months.

    Mackenzie at one point succeeded in fortifying his rights under Torquil Cononach’s resignation with a deed under the Great Seal confirming his ownership of Lewis, but was compelled to surrender his rights to the King, who vested them in 1608 in Lord Balmerino (later forfeited for treason), Sir George Hay and Sir James Spens of Wormistoun. By covert support for local resistance, Mackenzie once again skillfully undermined their campaign to assert their rights, with the eventual result that they sold them to him for a substantial sum and a lease of his woods at Letterewe. Having had his rights confirmed by the King, Mackenzie returned to Lewis in 1610 with 700 men and finally brought the island to submission.

    Feud with the Macdonells of Glengarry
    Mackenzie’s feud with the Macdonells of Glengarry may be said to have its origin in the revenge taken by two cousins of Glengarry for the murder of their fathers in Lochcarron in 1580. They burned the house of one of the murderers at Applecross, killing him and his family, and also slew in his bed Donald Mackenzie, who lived at Kishorn. Kenneth Mackenzie and Glengarry both went to Edinburgh to present complaints against each other, but Mackenzie is said to have got the better of his opponent by producing before the Privy Council Donald Mackenzie’s shirt, covered in his blood. Glengarry fled the city and, although repeatedly summoned, failed to put in an appearance. The Records of the Privy Council under the date 9 September 1602 show that he was declared outlaw and rebel. A commission of fire and sword was granted to Mackenzie against him and all his followers, with a decree of ransom for the loss of those who were burnt and plundered by him, and for Kintail's charges and expenses, making altogether a very large sum.

    Meanwhile, Angus Macdonell, Younger of Glengarry, had conducted a raid on Mackenzie’s homeland at Kintail, killing several and carrying away a large spoil of cattle. Armed with his commission and accompanied by a large force, Mackenzie defeated Macdonell at Morar and drove back to Kintail “the largest booty ever heard of in the Highlands of Scotland”. However, Glengarry’s cousins continued to commit outrages, including raids on Kinlochewe and Applecross, and the conflict became broader and more general when Glengarry formed an alliance with the Macdonalds of Moidart and other Macdonalds against Mackenzie. Mackenzie, in his turn, sought assistance from his brother-in-law, Hector Og Maclean of Duart. While Mackenzie was in Mull securing Maclean’s support, Glengarry’s son (who was by now the real moving spirit behind the feud) launched a raid on Lochcarron. His galley was soon afterwards intercepted between Kylerhea and Kyleakin by a force of Mackenzie’s men and he himself was killed, his body being brought back to Mackenzie’s wife, who was holding the fort at Eilean Donan.

    Glengarry himself died the following year, in 1603. A cousin of his, Allan Dubh MacRanuil of Lundie committed one further great atrocity when he burned the church of Kilchrist in Easter Ross, killing the congregation gathered inside. Glengarry’s piper is said to have marched around the flames, playing a pibroch which has been known ever since by the name of "Cillechriost," as the family tune of the Macdonells of Glengarry.

    However, the Macdonells, despite their sanguinary excesses, were no match for the politically astute Mackenzie, who (in 1607) succeeded in obtaining a crown charter to the disputed districts of Loch Alsh, Lochcarron and others, and who steadily bought up the claims of third parties against Glengarry. Their differences were eventually settled by an arrangement which secured absolutely to Mackenzie all Glengarry’s lands in Ross-shire and the superiority of all his other possessions, but Glengarry was to hold the latter, paying Mackenzie a small feu as superior.

    Marriage and children
    Mackenzie married, first, Ann Ross, daughter of George Ross of Balnagown and had:
    Colin Mackenzie, 1st Earl of Seaforth, later became the first Earl of Seaforth
    Janet Mackenzie, who married Sir Donald Gorme Macdonald, 8th Laird of Sleat, 1st Baronet, son of Archibald Macdonald and Margaret Macdonald
    Sybella Mackenzie, who married Ian Mor Macleod of Macleod, 16th Chief
    Barbara Mackenzie, who married Donald Mackay, 1st Lord Reay
    He married, secondly, Isobel Ogilvie, daughter of Sir Gilbert Ogilvie of Powrie and had:
    George Mackenzie, 2nd Earl of Seaforth, who subsequently became the second Earl of Seaforth
    Thomas Mackenzie
    Simon Mackenzie of Lochallin or Lochalyne or Lochslin d 01.1666, who married 05/06.1634 Elizabeth Bruce dau of Peter Bruce, Principal of St. Leonard's, son of Bruce of Fingask.

    Death
    Mackenzie died on 27 February 1611. The Earl of Cromartie said of him that he "was truly of an heroic temper, but of a spirit too great for his estates, perhaps for his country, yet bounded by his station ..."1,3,5

  • Birth*: Kenneth na cuire MacKenzie 10th of Kintail was born circa 1515 in Kintail, Scotland.3
  • Marriage*: He married Lady Elizabeth Stewart, daughter of John Stewart 2nd Earl of Atholl and Lady Janet Campbell, in 1538 in Scotland.4,5
  • Death*: Kenneth na cuire MacKenzie 10th of Kintail died between 6 June 1561 and 6 June 1568 in Scotland.2
  • Burial*: He was buried in 1568 in Beauly, Inverness-shire, Scotland.3
  • Biography: Kenneth Mackenzie (died 6 June 1568), traditionally reckoned 10th of Kintail and nicknamed Coinneach na Cuirc (or “Kenneth of the Whittle”), was a Highland chief, head of the Clan Mackenzie, who flourished in the turbulent Scottish politics of the mid-16th century.

    Origins
    Kenneth was the only son of John Mackenzie, 9th of Kintail (d.1561) and Elizabeth, the daughter of John Grant of Grant. The Mackenzies were a clan from Ross-shire that had risen to prominence in the 15th century during the disintegration of the Lordship of the Isles. In 1539 he was tenant of Little Skattil and Bawblair and, by a charter dated 24 April 1543, his father resigned to him and his wife part of the lordship of Kintail and the lands of Mekill Braan.

    Disputes with the Earl of Huntly
    In 1544, Kenneth was commanded by the Earl of Huntly, who held a commission as Lieutenant of the North from the Queen Regent, Mary of Guise, to raise his vassals and lead an expedition against Donald Glas Macdonald of Moidart. Kenneth declined, with the result that the Earl of Huntly ordered his entire army of 3,000 to proceed against both men. Huntly was however unsuccessful and was eventually obliged to retire from the West without achieving any significant victory. Some years later, Kenneth again embarrassed Huntly at a skirmish known as “the affair of Dingwall Bridge”.

    A follower of Queen Mary
    Having succeeded his father in 1561, Kenneth was one of the Highland Chiefs who met Mary, Queen of Scots, at Inverness in 1562 and helped her to obtain possession of Inverness Castle, from which she had been excluded by Alexander Gordon, the governor. Thereafter, he appears to have retired from public life. An Act of the Privy Council of 21 May 1562 records that Kenneth delivered up to the Queen Mary MacLeod, the heiress of Harris and Dunvegan, who had somehow found herself in his custody. The Act held him harmless against any proceedings by James Macdonald of Dunnyveg and the Glens, the legal guardian of Mary MacLeod, who had previously demanded her return.

    Family
    With his father, Kenneth received a remission in 1551 for the imprisonment of his cousin John Glassich Mackenzie (the son and heir of Hector Roy Mackenzie of Gairloch), who had died in mysterious circumstances in Eilean Donan Castle. It was said that John Glassich had intended to renew his father’s claim to ancestral Mackenzie homelands in Kintail.

    Kenneth married in 1538 Lady Elizabeth Stewart, daughter of John Stewart, 2nd Earl of Atholl, by Lady Janet Campbell, daughter of the Archibald Campbell, 2nd Earl of Argyll. His own children also made very advantageous marriages:
    Colin Cam Mackenzie, who succeeded him, married Barbara Grant, daughter of John Grant of Grant.
    Roderick Mackenze of Redcastle married Florence, daughter of Robert Mor Munro, 15th Baron of Foulis
    Janet married, first, Aeneas Macdonald of Glengarry and, secondly, Alexander Chisholm of Chisholm.
    Catherine married Alexander Ross of Balnagown and died on 12 April 1592.
    Agnes married (contract 11 May 1567) Lachlan Mor Mackintosh of Mackintosh.
    Margaret married (contract 24 November 1556) Walter Innes, son and heir of John Innes of Inverbreckie, and died in June 1570.
    Elizabeth married Walter Urquhart of Cromarty.
    Marjory married (contract 30 May 1574) Robert Munro, son and heir of Robert Munro of Foulis.

    Death and burial
    Kenneth died at Killin on 6 June 1568 and was buried at Beauly Priory.2,4

  • Burial*: He was buried after 9 September 1513 in Kimun, Cowal.2
  • Biography*: He succeeded to the title of 3rd Lord Campbell on 10 May 1493. He succeeded to the title of 2nd Lord Lorne on 10 May 1493. He succeeded to the title of 2nd Earl of Argyll on 10 May 1493. He held the office of Master of the Household to King James IV in March 1494/95. He held the office of Lieutenant-General of the Isles in 1500. He fought in the Battle of Flodden on 9 September 1513, where he commanded the right wing of the army, along with his brother-in-law, the Earl of Lennox.

    Gillespie Archibald Campbell, 2nd Earl of Argyll (died 9 September 1513) was a Scottish nobleman and politician who was killed at the Battle of Flodden.

    Biography
    Argyll was the eldest son of Colin Campbell, 1st Earl of Argyll and Isabel Stewart, daughter of John Stewart, 2nd Lord Lorne.

    He was made Master of the Royal Household of James IV of Scotland on 24 March 1495. After a crisis of law and order in the west of Scotland, Argyll was made governor of Tarbert Castle and Baillie of Knapdale, and this was followed by an appointment as Royal Lieutenant in the former Lordship of the Isles on 22 April 1500. Argyll eventually rose to the position of Lord High Chancellor of Scotland. His "clan" was rivalled only by Clan Gordon.

    The Earls of Argyll were hereditary Sheriffs of Lorne and Argyll. However, a draft record of the 1504 Parliament of Scotland records a move to request Argyll to hold his Sherriff Court at Perth, where the King and his council could more easily oversee proceedings, if the Earl was found at fault. The historian Norman Macdougall suggests this clause may have been provoked by Argyll's kinship with Torquil MacLeod and MacLean of Duart. These western chiefs supported the suppressed Lordship of the Isles.
    The Earl of Argyll was killed at the Battle of Flodden on 9 September 1513, with the king and many others.

    Family
    By his wife Elizabeth, a daughter of John Stewart, 1st Earl of Lennox, Argyll had issue:
    Colin Campbell
    Archibald Campbell of Skipness (d 1537 escaping from Edinburgh Castle), second husband of Janet Douglas, Lady Glamis
    Sir John Campbell of Calder (d.1546) ancestor of the Earls Cawdor
    Donald Campbell the Abbot of Coupar Angus
    Margaret Campbell, who married John Erskine, 5th Lord Erskine
    Isabel Campbell, married Gilbert Kennedy, 2nd Earl of Cassilis
    Janet Campbell, married John Stewart, 2nd Earl of Atholl
    Jean Campbell, married Sir John Lamont of that ilk, son Duncan Lamont
    Catherine Campbell, married MacLean of Duart, secondly to Archibald Campbell of Auchinbreck
    Marion Campbell, married Sir Robert Menzies of that ilk
