Mackenzie of Leoch & Family tree

The origins of this particular sept are somewhat obscure. Jacob MacKenzie, who is thought to have been related to the MacKenzies of Torridon, seized Castle Leoch by force in 1690, while the previous Lord of that Castle, Donald MacKenzie of Leoch, was absent from home. Donald died under mysterious circumstances before he could return to defend his property, and Jacob married Donald’s widow, Anne Grant, the daughter of Malcolm Grant of Glenmoriston, by whom he had issue:

·     Colum

·      Dougal, who married Maura Grant, daughter of William Grant, younger brother of Malcolm Grant of Glenmoriston and had issue by her, four daughters: Eleanor, Margaret, Molly, and Tabitha

·      Ellen, who eloped with Brian Fraser, bastard of Simon, 11th Lord Lovat. She bore him three children: William, Janet, and James.

·      Janet, who married Alexander Hay of Crimond, and died without issue, age 24

·      Flora, who died in infancy

·      Jocasta, who married first John Cameron of Torcastle, married secondly Hugh Cameron (“Black Hugh”) of Aberfeldy, and thirdly Hector Cameron of Arkaig, with whom she emigrated to America. Jocasta bore one daughter to each of her three husbands: to John Cameron, Seonag, to Hugh Cameron, Clementina, and to Hector Cameron, Morna

Colum MacKenzie married Letitia Chisholm, daughter of Andrew Chisholm of Erchless and had issue:

·      Hamish, who emigrated to Nova Scotia following the Rising of 1745 and the subsequent razing of Castle Leoch x)

The petition of Colum MacKenzie for a matriculation of arms was disputed by the heirs of Donald MacKenzie of Leoch, and was the subject of a prolonged legal process. The petition was not granted before the Rising of 1745, and after the Rising (in which the heir of Donald MacKenzie, his son and grandson, were all killed), the emigration of the only heir and the loss of his lands left the matter of the title undecided; the property of the estate reverted to a distant heir of Donald MacKenzie: Jeremiah MacKenzie.

x) It is thought that various family documents in the possession of Hamish MacKenzie and his heirs may have been preserved, which cast further light upon the antecedents of Jacob MacKenzie. As these documents are presently unavailable, however, nothing further can be adduced at this time.

I need more Outlander on my dash.  

I’m in the middle of Drums of Autumn, and I’ve rewatched the first 8 episodes more than is probably healthy……

I just finished Voyager and I need April to get here, fast!

OMG Bella you’re such a fast reader! I’m halfway through DIA. Damn my real life for getting in the way! (What life though?) hahaha

The books go right quick when you have 11 hours at work/commute to listen to them.

Reblog if you tell yourself a “bedtime story” at night to help yourself get to sleep

lynxgriffin:

It can be anything…a fanfic, a headcanon, a personal fantasy, an original story, smut, whatever. Just reblog if you think up some kind of fiction to yourself to help you fall asleep.

Francis and Mary in S02E04 The Lamb and the Slaughter promo [ x ]

There are 4 possible outcomes to this:

-Miscarriage: OUCHIE OUCH, damn that would hurt all Frary shippers dearly.

-Stillbirth: again OUCH

-Hysterical Pregnancy: Historically it is believed to have happened to Mary Tudor, so why not her cousin? But still OUCH.

-Fuck history Let’s have a Frary baby: It’s not like they haven’t established that precedent already; Bash didn’t exist, and historians agree that Francis was too sickly (most likely sterile as a result) to father children, so the as yet unnamed Frola baby definitely didn’t exist.  Mary only had one child, by her second husband when she was 24.

I just want to go get a drink, but apparently the only person I can hang out with in this new city is my roommate, because no one else has even acknowledged my presence here.   Today is the worst day to begin with and now I’m lonely on top of remembering dead mentors and friends. 

I need a new job because the transfer I made was a horrendous mistake. I can’t deal with this new store’s attitude, plus I’m still not being paid enough for what I’m doing, and I can’t connect with ANYONE that works there.

I’ve been in Chicago for a month now, and nothing has changed.  I’m still too fucking tired to do anything of consequence.

I want a hug.  And I miss my sister.
