  • Title: About Clan MacInnes
    Descriptive info: About the Clan MacInnes.. About the Clan.. A history.. Timeline of important events.. The name comes from the Gaelic.. MacAonghais.. , literally Sons of Angus ( mac , son or family of; aon meaning one or unique; and gusa meaning choice) - thus Unique Choice or Choice One.. Mac or mhic does not imply strict bloodlines, but could reflect kinship, dependant allies or tenants.. There are many Anglicized spellings of the name: McInnis(h), McGinnis, McKinnis, MacAngus, McKynes, M'Aneiss, McCanse, McNiesh and more.. Mac and Mc are interchangeable.. The name Angus, as the stem, is naturally included.. In addition, Masters, MacMaster and variants are of the Clan.. That s another long story.. The name Innes is often inaccurately linked to MacInnes.. Innes has a later origin in Moray.. Our distant forebears were among the early inhabitants of Islay, Jura and the Kintyre peninsula in Scotland, generally part of the region known as Argyll, or coastland of the Gael.. These Celtic, Gaelic-speaking people first appear there as settlers from Ireland in the last years of the 3 rd or 4 th century AD.. In c.. 500, three brothers - Fergus Mor, Loarn, and Oengus, expanded the north Irish kingdom of Dalriada to southwestern Alba.. It is now thought that Oengus had already established a colony on Islay and/or Jura and was the master of ships for the new Kingdom.. Fergus was the first King.. There is speculation that historical documents later linked these three as brothers only to assure the kingship lines.. Oengus (Angus) is considered to be the first of our Clan and is thought to be buried on Iona.. In the ensuing century, Dalriada gained influence and strength, and eventually the indigenous Pictish peoples and their culture were overwhelmed and the entire area became known as Scotland after the Scotti immigrants.. Stories and records that mention the MacInnes name go back to the earliest days of Scottish history.. It is believed that MacInneses lived on Iona with Columba.. The time, place and affection for the Church make this feasible.. Oengus and his descendants would have exploited their seagoing skills and ventured to Iona at an early time.. Iona is the final resting-place of many with our name and lore says that Columba selected the site whereupon the Kiel Church now stands in Lochaline near the castle built by MacInneses.. The MacInneses, MacGillivrays, MacMasters and MacEachearns were original members of an alliance known as Siol Gillebride (Seed of the Servant of St.. Bride) somewhat in the manner of Clan Chattan.. The great Celtic-Norse warrior Somerled is often referred to as Somerled MacGillebride and his father was believed to be a MacAonghais Chief.. Somerled s grandson was the first of Clan Donald.. By the time of Somerled, (killed in 1164), MacInnes people were well established in all of Morvern (the peninsula bounded by Loch Sunnart and Loch Linnhe and adjacent to the Isle of Mull).. They moved there probably as a result of constant Viking raids in the islands during the 9 th century.. A reliable account tells how MacInnes came to follow Somerled, progenitor of the McDougall and McDonald clans.. In the early 12 th century, with Vikings terrorizing their lands, the Chief of MacInnes sought Somerled to seek his aid.. A skilled warrior, Somerled agreed to help them if they would follow his directions completely.. He told them to kill and skin a herd of longhaired highland cattle, and to then march their normally kilt-clad fighters in plain sight of the invading Vikings.. Next they were to dress in the cowhides with the long hair turned outwards and march again before their enemies; then a third time they were to march in front of the Vikings, but the this time wearing the hides turned skin side out.. The MacInnes men followed his advice.. The Vikings were fooled into thinking the MacInneses had three times their actual fighting strength.. They turned and fled the overwhelming numbers and many were slain.. In thanks to Somerled, the MacInnes vowed to become his vassals.. In Morvern, the MacInnes Clan was known as the keeper of Kinlochaline Castle.. This 12 th century fortress is known as.. Caisteal an Ime.. ( Castle of Butter) because a Lady of Clan MacInnes, Dubh Chal, is said to have paid the builder with butter equal to the volume of the castle.. Its location, high on a rock at the head of Loch Aline, positioned it strategically for coastal defense.. Its walls are 10 feet thick blocks of rare sandstone and it is now fully restored as a home.. It is visible from the Sound of Mull on clear days.. 1358, the last chief of the Clan MacInnes was killed along with his sons by order of MacDonald, Lord of the Isles, presumably for interfering in the marriage of John, 1 st Lord of the Isles.. In 1390, the lands and castle were deeded to Clan MacLean, which had carried out the deed.. Clan MacInnes remains without a Chief to this day.. In 1997, the Chief of MacLean apologized for the act at the Glenfinnan Games.. It is known, however that MacInnes was in defense of the Castle when it was assaulted and burned by Colkitto in 1645.. In the 16th Century, many of the MacInnes Clan moved to Sleat on the Isle of Skye.. Five longships are said to have made the journey, each holding a family group.. From these five families are descended the five lineages of the name of MacInnes on the Isle of Skye.. Some of these MacInnes men became the hereditary bowmen to the Mackinnon of Strath.. The bowmen were known as Sliochd Neill a bhogha (The Line of Neil of the Bow).. Others of the dispossessed Clan had joined with Clan Dugall Craignish and some went to Perthshire and joined with the MacGregors, leading to an ill-informed present-day claim that MacInnes is a Sept of MacGregor.. It should be also noted that Clan Innes is unrelated to MacInnes having arisen in Moray east of Inverness at a later date.. In the 1745 uprising, MacInnes Clansmen took up arms on both sides.. Some stood with the Campbells and the House of Argyll, but others (mostly Skye men) supported Prince Charles Edward Stewart and fought beside Stewart of Ardshiel, who commanded of the Appin (Stewart) Regiment..  ...   Caisteal an Ime the Butter Castle.. It is in Morvern that we witnessed the rise of MacInnes and MacDonald alliances.. There is the famous Battle of Morvern in which the MacInneses, led by the legendary Somerled, drove the Vikings from Morvern and much of the mainland of Scotland.. Again in the Gaelic tradition we have a Lord of the Isles praising a MacInnes Chief of Kinlochaline for the brave performance of the MacInneses in battle.. It is interesting that some modern genealogists cite Somerled and Clan Donald as descendants of the old Cinel Aonghais of Islay the early MacInneses.. If so, this kinship would make sense of the intertwining of MacDonald and MacInnes history.. In the judicial commissions of the sixteenth century, MacInneses are listed as being among the leading gentry of Clan Donald of Glencoe.. On the darker side we have the incident of a Lord of the Isles authorising the murder of his MacInnes foster father and his five MacInnes foster brothers in the Castle of Ardtornish on the Sound of Mull.. MacInnes as the chief Councillor of the Isles had advised the Lord of the Isles to divorce his current wife and marry the future king Robert the Second s daughter.. Amie, the estranged wife and instigator of the murders, was said to have been the ruin of MacInnes.. Following the purge of Alexander the Second and the decline of the Lordship of the Isles the clan dispersed and many MacInneses left Morvern for Skye, Appin, Lochaber and Craignish.. A core of the clan remained in Morvern and on the islands of Mull and Iona.. The MacInneses of Morvern, Lochaber and Appin fought with the Stewarts of Appin for Bonnie Prince Charlie in the 45.. Young Donald Livingstone, the son of Anna MacInnes of Morvern, rescued the famous Appin Banner from the bloody field of Culloden the banner is now on display in the Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh.. West Highland Tales also relate how the sons of Anna MacInnes of Morvern secreted the remains of the ill fated James of the Glen from the gibbet at Ballachulish to a Christian burial at Keil Church in Appin.. After Culloden and The Clearances large numbers of MacInneses sought their fortunes in the New World and elsewhere.. Many to rise to distinguished positions in the new homelands.. Five men of the clan have received the Victoria Cross for valour over the past 150 years the highest military honour of the British Commonwealth.. The chiefship has been dormant since the murders at Ardtornish in the fourteenth century - there are no present plans to call a derbhfine to elect a chief.. The International Association of Clan MacInnes is currently led by High Commissioner Norman MacInnis of Massachusetts.. Today the descendants of this ancient Celtic clan of Scottish Dalriada are active worldwide in preserving their heritage through The International Association of Clan MacInnes..

MacAonghais, literally Sons of Aonghais ( mac son of or family of ; aon meaning one, and gusa meaning choice) thus Unique Choice or Choice One.. The International Association of Clan MacInnes has matriculated a new arms for Clan MacInnes.. Why a new Arms? The older arms and crests were either from past legacy or other families, but there was not a formal arms matriculated by the Association for our members to use.. Matriculation is the term used to express qualification, approval, admittance and registration in the official Public Registration of all Arms and Bearings in Scotland by the Lord Lyon and his court.. It is a lengthy and somewhat expensive endeavor.. This Arms is now considered the official Arms, Crest and Motto of the Association of Clan MacInnes.. It will be sent to the Standing Council of Scottish Chiefs and to Vendors to use in merchandising.. What about the old arms, crests and mottos? Whatever is in the public domain will remain, history cannot be erased.. These new arms will be recommended from now on, but the old symbols still remain part of the MacInnes heritage..

The late Patrick Barden, an expert on Scottish heraldry, told me that the correct adornment for a MacInnes clansman or clanswomen to wear was a sprig of holly.. Patrick scorned the present practice of wearing a chief s personal arms encircled in a belt and buckle as a relatively recent innovation.. Legacy Crest and Motto.. There are two found in the public domain.. The ancient one uses the bee sucking on a thistle flower and is said to have originated with a Lord of the Isles story with Clan Donald.. The second one, found in most gift stores, is the bow and arm  ...   Mull of Kintyre, Scotland.. (Crest - Boar with bow).. William John and Albert Garland MacInnis are descendents of Murdock MacInnis of Malagawatch Farm in Canada but Murdock was born on the Isle of Skye in Scotland.. A Shield only was granted to Murdock but Shields and Crests (Crest - Arm grasping a bow) granted to the two descendents.. The three shields although very similar, all differ according to the rules for depicting heraldic cadence (descendants)..

The Sleat historian Hugh MacDonald tells us that the principle surnames in Morvern were MacInnes and MacGillivray who are the same as the MacInneses..

  • Title: Culloden
    Descriptive info: Drumossie Culloden Moor was the place of the famous battle in 1746 near Inverness.. This is a very emotional battle for the Scottish people, as the Clans lost their right to wear their plaid colors, play the bagpipes or publicly meet as a family group.. In the Scotland Homecoming 2009, they called this conflict a civil war.. Scots fought on both sides.. Others consider it a religious war, and still others consider it a political battle.. This page will not go into details, as many books and web sites exist on the main battle.. by John Preeble (Penguin Books) is one of the better written documents.. Some more modern and colorful books are.. Culloden 1746.. by Peter Harringon (Osprey Military) or.. Culloden and the '45.. by Jeremy Black (St.. Martin's Press) show many of the maps and layout of the battle.. This page will cover the MacInnes connection that is still alive today.. The Appin Banner.. The Appin Chalice.. The Culloden Centre.. Appin Banner.. Most of the MacInneses at Culloden were in the Appin Regiment, although a few others were in regiments as noted below.. Each regiment had its own banner or colours and was always a target of the opposing side.. The Appin Regiment suffered severe casualties.. The Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh reports that as many as 17 different clansmen held the Appin Banner.. It was ripped with grapeshot that was used against the clansmen.. According to the book, NO QUARTER GIVEN , the muster roll of MacInneses in Prince Charles Edward Stuart's Army 1745-46 is shown below.. Editors are Alastair Livingstone of Bachuil (the father of the current Livingstone chief), Christian W.. H.. Aikman and Betty Stuart Hart.. MacInneses were represented by:.. 10 in Stewarts of Appin.. 1 in Gordon of Glenbucket.. 3 in MacDonalds of Clanranach.. 3 in MacDonalds of Glencoe.. 1 in MacDonnell of Keppoch.. 4 in MacKinnons.. Total of 22.. Donald Livingstone, 18, whose mother Anna was a MacInnes, bravely rescued the banner.. Donald wrapped the banner around himself, and then put on his coat to help hide it.. The British saw him and shot him.. He was said to have been knocked senseless, but was not injured.. He managed to grab a loose mount and went back to Morvern where he presented the Appin Banner to his mother.. Donald later gave the banner to the father of his commander, who lived in Ballachulish.. The banner was later hung in Edinburgh Castle and now resides in the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh.. Left: Mhairi Ross (nee Livingstone) carried the replica Appin Banner into St.. John's Church at Ballachulish as part of the 2009 Homecoming.. Her ancestor, 18-year-old Donald Livingston (son of Anna MacInnes of Morvern), rescued the Banner and Appin Chalice from the carnage after Culloden..

The gravestone has classic Celtic symbols like the skull and bones, and shield.. Here local historian Iain Thornber is pointing out the various symbolisms.. Visit the..

John's Church where the Chalice is now held.. The Glennfinnan Monument where Prince Charlie met with the Clans and received their oaths.. Close by is a center that details the history.. To the other side of this  ...   area is very small.. It is unfortunate that Clan MacInnes cannot support the Centre.. There are three main problem areas, recent changes from the National Trust for Scotland, that the Association feels the way history is portrayed has been changed.. 1) All the regiments were made up of volunteers from the area and most regiments had members of various clans involved.. Initially Clan MacInnes with 22 members in the muster was not mentioned in the display area in the Centre as one of the clans represented.. This omission was later corrected.. 2) Only the Stewarts and MacLaren are now mentioned on the Appin Regiment Marker Stone on the battlefield.. For many years the marker stone had merely stated Appin Regiment.. Why the amended version of the Appin Regiment, Stewarts and MacLarens on the new stone? All other clans have no objection to the specific listing of Stewarts as they had the largest representation in the regiment.. Why have the MacLarens received specific recognition to the detriment of other clans? After all, the MacLarens had fewer recruits in the Appin Regiment and lost fewer men than, for example, the MacColls.. Indeed the MacLaren Clan was chiefless from 1672 to 1957.. The International Association of Clan MacInnes would prefer that the marker revert to the earlier format of Appin Regiment.. As a compromise the Association would be happy for all participating clans in the Appin Regiment to be acknowledged.. A mail/email campaign with the National Trust for Scotland has to date, not been successful, and repeated attempts to set up a meeting.. with the Chairman of the Trust.. have been rejected (a copy of the.. appeal letter is shown here.. should you feel you want to add your weight to the campaign).. Clan Livingstone has also been very supportive of our efforts.. 3) The aftermath of the Battle of April 1746 is very much understated.. The atrocities that the British government committed against the Scots is well known; women and children were killed, clansmen hunted down and killed and the injured on the field mutilated.. The British Hanoverian commander Cumberlaud was nicknamed The Butcher because of his actions.. The walkway into the Centre is marked with stones of the various clans.. Clan MacInnes chose not to have a marker for reasons mentioned above.. Right: The blue flags marking the start of the clan line.. The wall leading into the Centre with the clan blue and Hannover British red markers.. On the left is the Gaelic of Culloden.. The battlefield is behind this wall..

This is the controversial stone marker of the Appin Regiment.. 250 is the number of men.. Bagpipes from 1746 at the entrance of the museum.. The battlefield map at the start of the outdoor tour..

Some have lost their markings, as shown below.. A simple marker for the British soldiers buried there.. Almost all the British soldiers were Scottish as well.. Several of the clan markers had flowers, showing the emotion that still exists.. To the right is a marker that list all the clans of that regiment.. The symbols of Scotland were abundant that day, heather in bloom alongside wild flowers and daisies.. And our friend, the bee, on a thistle along the blue flag path of clans.. MacAonghais a-rthist!..
