[9] From Amelia - Vol ii appendix Q.-Page l74 Copy from an original paper written by "Duncan Macpharie" the narrator of the Clan Gregor's campaign in 1745-6. Memorandum for the head of the Family of Dugal Keir. "Donald Murray of Craigruie and Inverlochlaraigbeg was acknowledged by the whole Clan Maculekeir that this Donald was the head of yr family. He Died and his son succeeded, his name was Callum oge, Callum was Captain in Perth's Batalion in prestonpans and he was mortaly wounded and Died his wife being a widow having Two sons James and Ludovick & Daughter. James died in Craig¬nech near Drummond Castle, bred a Doctor, Ludovick was bred a Miln Wright and Died in Jamaica.-Now this branch is clean out. This Donald had a younger brother that Listed in the Gray horse, they cald him John Murray, he lived some time ago upon his pension in the South country in a vilage called Yedbrouch if he or his be in life they are the head of Clan Dugal Kear, I shall defy any man living to Dispute this for its truth."

[10] This Family (Gregor dhu MacDhugail) resided from time immemorial in Caol-letir the very Head of Glenfalloch, a mile south from Crianlarich and two miles west from Innerardoran, till about the beginning of the year 1700. Gregor dubh married a sister of Donald Glas in Glengyle and had a son Malcolm

[11] Malcolm MacGregor otherwise Murray of Marchfield received from John, Duke of Atholl, Feb. 7,1707, a feu charter of the four mark land of Manahilbeg, the three and thirty shilling land of Wester Innernentie and the half of Wester Drummilich all in the parish of Balquhidder and which were afterwards named generally Marchfield or Ledcriech." Malcolm left several sons who will be mentioned later.

[12] The source for Margaret, dtr of John in Kyletter (Caolleitir) marrying Coll, son of Rob Roy is a genealogy printed in WH Murray's "Rob Roy"
From Amelia vol ii, page 491 (Appendix O) marriage contract between Coll and Margaret
"Be it known to all men be these presents, me Coll Campbell Son to Robert Campbell late of Inversnaid Forasmuch as in the month of December last bypast (ie 1720) there was a marriage betwixt me and Margaret Campbell eldest lawful daughter to John Campbell in Kerletter in Glenfalloch"
It has been claimed (notably by Stephenson in "The Hunt for Rob Roy") that this was a marriage linking Rob Roy's family in Balquhidder with his rival Iain oag beag in Glencarnaig. If it was then it blows a large hole in Iain oag's grandson John Murray's claim to descend from Patrick Abrach, Ladasach and the MacGregors of Brackley!
