Duncan Revaich,
William Jhone the Lubissone,

Patrick succeeded (his Father, Duncan Aberach, who was killed at Bentoig April 1604). He was co-temporary with Malcolm

Brackley appears in the list of chief families of the Clan Gregor, sent to Sir John Murray of Tullibardine the end of the 16th century, where the first name under the "House and Gang of Gregour McAne” is that of" Gregour McAne in Brackley in Glenurquhy." He was Captain of the Castle of Glenurchay under Sir Colin Campbell, 1570. The next mention is 1629, July 26th, when "Johne Grahame alias McGregour of Brackly complained against Christian Comrie, Relict of …. McGregour in Glenogill, her son Patrick McGregour having slain Johne McGregour Dow McGregour son to Johne in Dullatur, Sister Sone to the Complainer." In 1635 Sept. 4th," Patrick Graham sumtyme McGregour, eldest son and nearest heir of umqle James Graham sumtyme of Bracklie" has a precept of "Clare Constat" of the two merk land of the same. This Patrick figures in several little borrowing transactions or "obligations." In 1674 Patrick McGregor of Brackly gives [page 305] an obligation and his name appears in a list of families summoned to Inver¬lochy to give a Bond to the Commissioners of Council 1679, while in Sept. of that year “McGregor of Brackland" is named in a Commission of Fire and Sword given to Campbell of Laweris against the Clan.
In 1682, Patrick McGregor of Bracklie gave a disposition of the lands to John his eldest son. In a Latin confirmation of this disposition, April 11th, 1683, it is stated that Patrick McGregor had inherited Bracklie from his father, James Graham or McGregor, of whom no other mention is made. In 1685 there occurs an adjudication against John McGregor of Braiklie and John his eldest son. As the following year John obtains Sasine of the estate, on the previous disposition, it is to be inferred that Patrick died about this time.
In 1686, 28th August, Resignation of the lands of Bracklie by John MacGregor of Bracklie and Patrick Graham his father, to John Earl of Breadalbane.
In 1687, March 26, there is an obligation by John MacGregor Fiar of Braiklie - and in 1690 in an act for sequestrating "Rebels' Rents" “McGrigor of Braikley" is amongst the names, which shows he must have been on the Loyalist side in the previous wars.
In 1714, when Balhaldies was elected chief he bound himself" if the Government were pleased to allow him a pension to destinate a third part of it to the following Heads of families " …Glengyle, Gregor McGregor of Bracklie, head of the Family of Bracklie, and to Roro….." Gregor McGregor, head of the family of Bracklie, signs the Bond of Election to Balhaldies," and some persons overlooking the fact that Bracklie was given to a younger son some generations previously, infer from this signature that the older family- i.e. the House of Duncan Ladosach - agreed to the Election. Bracklie however was a junior branch, and had not in reality any prominent position in the Clan.
