Media: DATA CD - 1 CD (490 pages)

Alexander Mackenzie was the foremost historian of Scottish families in the 19th century, and his works have well withstood the attention of the most recent historians. He was thorough, solid and exhaustive in his research and presentation. This title of his was originally published in 1884.
This history of the Camerons begins with a discussion of the origin of the family and of the name and then proceeds through biographical and historical as well as genealogical studies of the first 24 chiefs of the family. Chapter 19, for example, concentrates upon the 'Gentle Lochiel', certainly one of the most famous of all members of this illustrious house. There are also chapters on Dr Archibald Cameron of Lochiel and his descendants, the Camerons of Fassiefern, Worcester, Erracht, Inverailort, Callart, Lundavra, Glenevis, Speyside, Dawnie, Barcaldine, Cuilchenna, Kinlochiel, Clunes, Camisky and Strone.
This, then, constitutes a full and varied history not only of the main line of Camerons but of the cadet lines as well. Additional families which are included in some detail include: Campbell, Drummond, Davidson, Fraser, Gordon, Grant, Donald, Mackenzie, Mackintosh, MacLean, MacMartin, MacPherson, and Stewart.
This CD consists of scans of the original book, which can be browsed, enlarged and printed if required. Please note: it is not searchable.
