Brief Clan History

The Gaelic, Mac-an-T'saoir, translates as, Children of the Carpenter and is the name of a Clan which settled around Ben Noe, under Ben Cruachan, in the 14th century.

Although there is an association with Clan Campbell, they are on record as having been Hereditary Foresters to the Stewarts of Lorn. A tradition tells us that they farmed the lands of Glenoe from 1380 until 1810, but there is no evidence to substantiate this. In the 15th century, a branch of the MacIntyres in Badenoch took protection from the Clan Chattan Federation.

The first Chief of MacIntyre in Lorn appears to be Duncan, who married a daughter of Campbell of Barcaldine. During the Civil War in Scotland, Royalists forces under Alasdair Colkitto, MacDonald, invaded the lands of Argyll, but Glen Noe was spared, the reason given that the MacIntyres were kin to Clan Donald.

However, the MacIntyres supported the Marquis of Argyll at the Battle of Inverlochy in 1643 and were soundly defeated by Colkittos ally, the Marquis of Montrose.

James, 3rd Chief of MacIntyre, was sympathetic to the Jacobite Cause, but held back because of his Campbell connections. However, several MacIntyres joined the Stewarts of Appin to fight at the Battle of Culloden, and five were killed and five wounded. Duncan Ban, the MacIntyre Bard, fought for the Government at the Battle of Falkirk in 1746.

Donald, 4th Chief of MacIntyre emigrated to America in 1783. In 1955, Alasdair MacIntrye of Camus-na-h-erie recorded arms as a cadet of the Chiefly House.

In 1990, James Wallace MacIntyre, 9th Chief, matriculated arms as Chief of MacIntrye.
