Inverness-shire. Edited and abridged by Henry Paton, and originally

Like other great Highland families, the Mackintoshes preserved records
relating to marriage contracts, land transfers, loan arrangements, and a
multitude of other legal documents dating, in this case, from the 15th through
the early 19th century. These documents are presented individually, with details
of the transaction to which they applied, and with the names of those who were
involved, either for or against the Mackintosh chief.
The preponderance of names relate to Mackintosh, the families involved in the
Clan Chattan Confederation, and the great and small families holding land
adjacent to or involved with the Mackintoshes.
Among the names most often cited (other than those of the Chattan
Confederation) are: Baillie, Bayne, Chisholm, Clark, Cumming, Cuthbert, Dean,
Duff, Dunbar, Fraser, Gordon, Graham, Grant, Hay, Innes, Leslie, M'Conechy,
M'Ean, M'Ewin, Mackenzie, MacLeod, MacMartin, MacQueen, MacThomas, MacWilliam,
Menzies, Munro, Rose, Ross, Sutherland, Waus, and Winchester. This compilation
of documents and extracts is most useful to those researching areas in and
around the Mackintosh lands or directly relating to Mackintosh and Clan Chattan.
