Alexander Mackenzies massive study of the Monroes was published as The History of the Munros of Foulis, and has from its publication to the 21st century been one of the most respected and consulted accounts of this venerable Scottish family. This publication continues and expands that earlier work by detailing the genealogy and history of the Irish branch of the Monro family. Major Daniel Munro of the House of Obsdale, accompanied by his brother Robert and his nephew George, went to Ireland in 1642 in the army commanded by General Robert Munro. For the next ten years or so, he fought in Ireland, and in 1666 was rewarded by King Charles II with the lands of Lower Iveagh. It therefore was through this third son of George Munro of Obsdale that we have the link between the Scottish and the Irish branches of the Munro family. This history contains extensive materials on the history of the Munroes in Ireland and in North America, from their arrival in Ireland in 1642 through the end of the 19th century.
