Andrew "Dubh" MacFarlane 2nd Baron of Gartartan or Gartvertane1,2

  • Birth*: Andrew "Dubh" MacFarlane 2nd Baron of Gartartan or Gartvertane was born circa 1524 in Gartartan, Perthshire, Scotland.1,2,3
  • Marriage*: He married Margaret Campbell, daughter of Dougal Campbell of Ardaillour and Janet Graham, circa 1560.4,3
  • Death*: Andrew "Dubh" MacFarlane 2nd Baron of Gartartan or Gartvertane died before 1611 in Scotland.1,2
  • Biography*: Captain of a force of two hundred men promised by the Duke of Lennox to assist in the settlement of the "Plantation of Ulster" in Ireland. They settled in county Tyrone and many would have been Macfarlanes whose desendants would have emigrated from there to North America, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

    Andrew, eldest son of Walter is mentioned as taking part in the raid upon the Colquhoun in 1543. He does not appear however to have taken an active part in the feud with that clan between 1589 and 1610, although he was held responsible for the depredations with other leaders of Clan Parlane as detailed in Chapter XV Vol 1. 'Andrew of Gartavartane' and three of his sons, Malcolm Dubh, Andrew and John Dubh, are named in Letters of Lawborrows registered in the Books of Secret Council, 1590.

    John Erskine, Earl of Mar, became security for him and his eldest son, Malcolm, when a truce was made with the Colquhoun Clan in 1597. In that year also, on 6 March, Malcolm, presumably also on behalf of his father (although Andrew's name does not appear) entered into a Mutual Bond of Friendship with John, Earl of Monteith. Malcolm is described as 'Malcolm Mcpharlane, Friar (Fiar) of Gartavartane'. We give the document in full:

    "mutual Bond of Friendship between John, Earl of Menteith and Malcolm Macpharlane, Friar of Gartavartane, 6 March, 1597. At the downance, the 6th day of March, the year of God 1597, it is appointed, agrees and finally indicted between the noble and potent lord, John, Earl of Menteith, on the one part and Malcolm McPharlane, Fiar of Gartavartane, on the other part in manner and form and effect as after follows:

    That is to say for as much as the said noble Lord has become bound and obliged and by the tenour hereof binds and obliges himself and his heirs to maintain and defend the said Malcolm "McPharland and his heirs and to take plain part with him in all his honourable undertakings against all persons or persons whomsoever, the King my lord's chief, his Lordship's own house, with those of the name of Graham, alone excepted. For the which cause aforesaid, Malcolm McPharland and his heirs have become bound and obliged and by the tenour hereof binds and obliges himself and his heirs by the faith and truth of his body, to take plain part with the said noble lord and his heirs in all the said noble lord's undertakings whatsoever and to give his leal and true service to the said noble lord and his heirs, in maintaining and defending his lordship and his house in rising, assisting and fortifying the said noble lord, by himself his heirs and all that he may command and 'mak' of the surname of McPharland, to the said noble lord's use and honour against all persons whomsoever, the King's Majesty, the Duke of Lennox and the said Malcolm's chief, excepted 'Alanerlie'; and that the said Malcolm, nor his heirs, nor no others of that surname, as he may 'mak' or command shall neither know, 'wit', see nor hears, 'prive or onprive', any hurt or scathe of the said noble lord, his heirs or house, of their person, body, goods and gear, but he and his foresaids shall foresee and manifest the same to the said noble lord so far as they know or get intelligence of their power, and that there shall be neither theft or oppression done to the said noble lord nor his country in selling or taking away, heirships or goods, but that the said Malcolm and his foresaids shall endeavour diligently by their 'moyane', fortifications and assistance to bring home the same, within their power, and that the said Malcolm shall array his force and power at all times to the said noble lord, and his lordship, has to do against all persons whomsoe ver, the forsaids excepted. And in case the said Malcolm, or his aforesaid b e found untrustworthy or disobedient in the prem ises, in le.. and true service, or otherwise the said noble lord to be free as if bond or contract had never been made, and the same to take effect hereafter and for the more verification, keeping and observing of the premises, both the said parties, in taking of their consent, have subscribed the same, year, day and place foresaid as also the said noble lord binds and obliges himself, his heirs and servants, to assist the said Malcolm, in case to do in like manner, before these witnesses:
    William Grahame of Douchray as witness
    Thomas Grahame witness
    John Henryson witness"

    In 1599 Malcolm on behalf of his father and himself found sufficient cautioners to keep the peace, under pain of two thousand merks, in the persons of David Cunningham of Ibert, Walter Leckie of Easter P oldar, and William of Duchray, and in 1603 for himself and in the name of his father's brothers, he made the peace with the Colquhouns, from which the Arrochar Macfarlanes were expressly excepted. Colquhoun bound himself to stop all proceedings against the Gartartan Macfarlanes and for his part Malcolm became bound under a bond of manrent and service to Alexander Colquhoun. The details of this agreement are to be found in Vol 1 p 89. It should be observed that while Malcolm's 'father's brothers' are mentioned in this treaty his father is not named. It may be assumed therefore that Andrew died in or before 1603.

Gartartan_Castle - MacFarlane

The ancestry chart of Archibald MacFarlane (ID # 34) is presented because he unites the ancestry of both his parents. If an individual appears more than once in Archibald's chart this indicates descent from the individual in more than one line. By clicking on the each instance (i.e. Ancestry of Archibald MacFarlane (#5)) each line of descent will be shown.

  • Birth*: Walter MacFarlane 1st of Gartartan or Gartvertane was born circa 1506 in Arrochar, Dunbartonshire, Scotland.1,5,2
  • Marriage*: He married Janet Galbraith, daughter of James Galbraith 13th of that Ilk, 7th of Culcreauch and Agnes Colquhoun, circa 1520 in Culcreuch Castle, Fintry, Stirlingshire, Scotland.1,5,2,6
  • Death*: Walter MacFarlane 1st of Gartartan or Gartvertane died on 10 September 1547 in battle of Pinkie Cleugh, Midlothian, Scotland.1,5,2
  • Biography*: Gartartan, the most powerful and wealthest, Cadet House was founded by the only son of the second marriage of Sir Iain/John MacFarlane of that Ilk & Arrochar, 8th Chief & 11th Baron, to a daughter of Herbert, 1st Lord Herries.

    Walter MacFarlane of Ardleish, Tarbet, & Gartartan, 1st Baron, Tutor of Arrochar, who was born circa 1506 in Scotland, and was killed on 10 September 1547 at the battle of Pinkie Cleugh in East Lothian, Scotland.

    On 19 October 1529 he, as Tutor of the chief and thus exercising the latter's authority, was summonded to appear before the Privy Council with four other barons to tender advice anent restoring peace in Menteith. This indicates that his eldest brother the Chief (Andrew MacFarlane of that Ilk & Arrochar, 9th Chief & 12th Baron) was not able to act for himself. Was it at this time that Andrew made his journey to Rome? He was given extensive lands around the north end of Loch Lomond and on 17 September 1531 he received a charter to the barony of Gartartan in Perthshire from King James V., of which on 1 February 1536 he made a Precept of Sasine to his young heir, Andrew.

    At the battle of Glasgow Muir (1544, Lanarkshire, Scotland) Walter fought under his nephew (and later chief), Duncan MacFarlane of that Ilk & Arrochar, 10th Chief & 13th Baron, for their liege lord and mutual second cousin Matthew, 13th Earl of Lennox, and in July 1546 he commanded the light infantry when Earl Matthew led the expedition around the Firth of Clyde on behalf of his ally, King Henry VIII of England. Walter was forfeited for his part in that raid, but soon found respite and met his end fighting for Scotland on the "Black Saturday of Pinkie." He married his distant cousin Miss Janet Galbraith of Galbraith & Culcreuch who became Lady Gartartan, daughter of James Galbraith of that Ilk & Culcreuch, 13th Chief & 7th Baron. They had issue four children, a daughter and three sons:
    [ from 'The barons of Arrochar and their cadets' a manuscript by Chevalier Terrence Gach MacFarlane; chapt. 1-12d & chapt. 22 -start ]

    Progenitor of the MacFarlanes of Gartartan & Ballaggan.

    He held lease for Ardeish, a farm on the eastern shore of Loch Lomond & Stuckgown a farm about a mile south of Tarbet. He and some 200 men "well armed in shirts of mail and two-handed swords" fought with Lennox in an army supplied by King Henry VIII of England. They took the islands of Bute and Arran, defeated the Earl of Argyll, and burned down the castles of Rothesay and Dunoon. However when they attempted to take Dumbarton Castle they were defeated. Walter was fortunate to recieve an indulgance of 3000 pounds. This was provided by Andrew, Lord Evandale, Henry, Lord Methven and Sir John Hamilton of Finnart. Walter fell with his nephew, Duncan, the thirteenth Chief, together with many clan bowmen, 10,000 nobles, lairds and common men at the Battle of Pinkie in 1547.

    The founder of the Gartartan family was Walter of Ardleish, third son of John, the 11th Chief. His mother was a daughter of Herbert, Lord Herries. Walter had several sons, Andrew Dubh, who succeeded him; one unnamed who received from his father the estate of Dulator, near Port of Monteith; and possibly Malcolm Beg of Letter in Strathgartney (Loch Katrine), to whom (and his son Walter) reference is made in Vol 1 pp 96/97.

    The patrimony of Walter of Ardleish in the Arrochar country was the estate of Stuckdown (Stuckgowan?), Tarbet; the Gartartan (anciently part of Vartane) lands near Gartmore in West Perthshire being acquired in 1551 from John Lyle:.. of the reason for the description 'of Ardleish' we have no record.

    His adventures in the Lennox and his exploits during the Lennox/Glencairn rebellion during the minority of Mary, Queen of Scots, are described in Chapt. X1V Vol 1. It may be noted that his nephew, Duncan 13th Chief, chose Walter as his regent at Arrochar when he himself was absent 'upon the war path'. Both fell at the fatal Battle of Pinkie in 1547.

    Pitcairn's Criminal Trials, under date 16th August, 1536:- 'Walter MacFarlane found John Napier of Kilmahew and John Buntyn of Ardoch, as cautioners for his entry at the next Justice-aire of Dumbarton, to underlie the law for art and part of convocation of the leiges in great numbers, in warlike manner, etc...'

    [E-mail from Terrance Gach MacFarlane rec: 26 Nov 2009 confirms this account concerns Walter of Gartartan]


    As to Walter of Ardleish & Tarbet being third son of (Sir) John (who we are agreed was not Sir & did not fall at Flodden) the Historians cause confusion by calling him "first son by daughter of Lord Herries but she was a second wife. The elder two sons, by a daughter of James Lord Hamilton, were Andrew (the Wizard) 12th chief and Robert of "Inversnait".

    Your point is a good one regarding the third son getting such a good "bit" but the same, or similar remark would apply to Gartartan. I expect the Herries lady had money or her people drove a hard bargain. There is a record of a Campbell wife getting all the land from Stronafyne to Gordon [Gorton] as tocher or jointure.

    Anyhow this Walter was a fine fellow. He was in command of 140 men with Lennox and Glencairn in the taking of Bute and Arran, in time of Mary Queen of Scots and in this connection there is a promontory beside Millport called MacFarlane point or some such name. I have wondered if this has any association with this campaign.

  • Birth*: James Galbraith 13th of that Ilk, 7th of Culcreauch was born circa 1470 in Scotland.1
  • Marriage*: He married Agnes Colquhoun, daughter of Humphrey Colquhoun 10th of Colquhoun & 12th of Luss and Helen (Jean) Erskine, circa 1490 in Scotland.2
  • Biography*: Clan Galbraith is a Scottish clan. The clan does not have a chief recognised by the Lord Lyon King of Arms. Because of this, the clan is considered an armigerous clan, and as such Clan Galbraith has no standing under Scots Law. The clan-name of Galbraith is of Gaelic origin, however its meaning denotes the bearer as of British origin, as opposed to Gaelic. The early Galbraiths were centred in the Lennox district, which spans the Highland and Lowland border of Scotland. The 17th chief of the clan brought ruin to the clan in the late 16th and early 17th century, and eventually lost his lands and fled Scotland for Ireland. His grandson, the 19th chief, was the last chief of Clan Galbraith.

    Origin of the clan

    The surname Galbraith is of Gaelic origin. The name is derived from the elements gall ("stranger") + Breathnach ("Briton"), meaning "British foreigner". The elements used in the surname would denote the differences between the Gaels —who have been generally thought to have begun migration to Scotland in about the 5th century— and the native Welsh speaking Britons, particularly the those of the Kingdom of Strathclyde. The Strathclyde Britons remained a distinct ethnic group from both the Highland Gaels and Lowland Angles until the 14th century. The former capital of the Kingdom of Strathclyde was Dumbarton ("Fortress of the Britons"), in the Lennox.

    In Scottish Gaelic the Galbraiths are called Breatanuich or Clann-a-Breatannuich, meaning "Britons" and "Children of the Britons". The early Galbraiths held lands in the Lennox, in the area of Loch Lomond, north of Dumbarton. The stronghold of these early Galbraiths was on the island of Inchgalbraith which is located on west side of Loch Lomond about 2 miles south-east of Luss. The heraldist Iain Moncreiffe of that Ilk speculated that the Arms of the Galbraiths —which bore three bears' heads— may allude to the British name Arthur that is thought by some to mean "bear"

    History

    The man who is considered to be first chief of Clan Galbraith was Gilchrist Bretnach who married the granddaughter of the first Earl of Lennox.

    The fourth chief, Sir William Galbraith of Buthernock, married a sister of "Black Comyn" who was head of the most powerful family in Scotland at the time. Sir William, however, sided against the Comyns when he had a part in the rescue the boy king Alexander III from Comyn's control. Ultimately Sir William rose in power to becoming one of the co-Regents of Scotland in 1255. Sir William's son, the fifth chief of the clan, Sir Arthur, supported Robert the Bruce, and also married a sister of Sir James Douglas. 'Good Sir James Douglas' is famous for perishing in Spain against the Saracens, while leading a small band of Scottish knights carrying Bruce's heart to the Holy Land.

    A branch of the Galbraiths held Culcreuch in Strathendrick in 1320, and before the end of that century had inherited the leadership of the clan. In 1425 the ninth chief James Galbraith of Culcreuch joined the rebellion of James Mor Stewart against King James I of Scotland, in support of the overthrown regent Murdoch Stewart, Duke of Albany. As many as 600 members of the clan were forced to flee after the failure of the revolt, exiled to Kintyre and the Isle of Gigha, where they adopted the new name of MacBhreatneaich of M'Vretny ("son of the Briton") .

    In 1489 the twelfth chief, Thomas Galbraith of Culcreuch, was captured by James IV and hanged.3

  • Birth*: Sir Iain/John MacFarlane of that Ilk & Arrochar, 11th Baron, 8th Chief of the Clan MacFarlane was born circa 1480 in Scotland.1
  • Marriage*: He married the Honourable (?) Herries of Terregles, daughter of Herbert Herries 1st Lord Herries of Terregles and Mariot Carlyle, circa 1500 in Scotland.1
  • Death*: Sir Iain/John MacFarlane of that Ilk & Arrochar, 11th Baron, 8th Chief of the Clan MacFarlane died on 9 September 1513 in the Battle of Flodden, Kirknewton, Northumberland, England;
    Clan historian James Macfarlane in 1948 correspondance states that (Sir) John "was not Sir & did not fall at Flodden"
    The response of other historians was that he was probably knighted at Flodden just before the battle, as was the kings custom, in order to engender support and loyalty in the conflict ahead.

    The fact that he was alive after Flodden is confirmed by a document relating to the property of Morlaggan referring to one "Dugall McCoull" in 1514 who pledged the land to "Johne Mcfarlane of Araquhur" by way of a wadset (old style mortgage) for the grand "soum of fourty punnds" (¹40)!1,3
  • Biography*: The following is from History of Clan MacFarlane by James MacFarlane
    Chapter XIII

    SIR JOHN MACFARLANE was the son of Andrew, and therefore nephew of his contemporary, Matthew, l0th Earl of Lennox.

    The honour of knighthood was bestowed upon him by James IV.

    In a charter which he granted to one William MacFarlane of the lands of Garrowstuck, Sir John is designated :-

    " Honorabilis, Sir Johannes Macfarlane dominus ej usd miles capitaneus de Clan Pharlane, filius Andreae, etc," which is : -

    " The honourable Sir John MacFarlane, lord of the same, soldier, captain of Clan Pharlane, son of Andrew, etc."

    This charter is the occasion of the misconception, already dealt with, in respect to Sir John being merely " Captain of the Clan," and not Chief. Matthew, the earl, and Sir John married sisters, daughters of James, Lord Hamilton, and nieces of James III. By his wife, whose name is not given. Sir John had two sons, Andrew, his heir, and Robert, who founded the branch of " Inversnait." Sir John married a second time, a daughter of Herbert, Lord Herries, by whom he had a son, Walter of Ardleish. Walter was the progenitor of the MacFarlanes of Gartartan and Ballaggan. Thirdly, Sir John married Lady Helen Stewart, daughter of John, third Earl of Athole, by whom he had a son, John, and a daughter, Grizel.

    " Sir John," says the chronicler, " was a man of spirit and resolution, and accompanied King James IV. to the fatal field of Flodden, 15 14, where he lost his life fighting gallantly for king and country."

    John evidently had a fifth son, named Duncan, In 1545, at Irvine, there was a bond of Manrent (feudal service), entered into by " Duncan, uncle to the laird of MacFarlane " to Hugh MacMaster of Eglinton, At this date Duncan, the son of Andrew, Sir John's grandson, was laird of Arrochar. The first mentioned Duncan was, therefore, a brother of Andrew, the I2th Chief, and a younger son of Sir John. This is confirmed in a Colquhoun complaint of 21st December, 1544, against Duncan MacFarlane of Arrochar, Andrew MacFarlane, Robert MacFarlane and Duncan MacFarlane, his fader, brether, i.e., his father and father's brothers.3,4
