MARYLAND HERALDRY History Of Distinguished Fami lies And Personages. THE MACKENZIES AND ARMS Of The Proud Scotch Clan Connected With The Royal Fanlily Of Bruce Letters On Genealogy. By Emily Emerson Laxtz. Al! the blue bonnets are bound for the border. Many a banner spread, Flutters above your head. Many a cre6t that is famous in story. Mount and make ready, then. Sons of the mountain glen. Fight for the Queen and our old Scottish glory. "Border Ballad," Sir Walter Scott. Arms Azure, a stag's head puissant bleeding at the forehead. Crest A dexter arm bearing a naked sword. Supporters Two greyhounds. Motto Fide parta, fide aucta. Nothing is more potent than a name to call up a mental picture, and as a magician's wand summons to the beholder realms of fairyland, so a Scottish name la the magic whereby is Invoked to the mental eye visions of a land and people where the Scotch Highlands is the picturesque background for an everchanglng panorama of historic romance and adventure, of courage and daring, that possess a charm as unfading as the beauty of Scotland's everlasting hills. The name Mackenzie Is borne by one of those proud Scottish clans that boast intermarriage with the kingly family of Bruce and whose antiquity is so great that historic traditions of centuries antedates actually proven facts concerning Its beginning. The first authentic records of the clan are concerning one Kenneth, eldest son of Angus, a scion and near relative of the O'Beolans, the ancient Earls of Ross, who before and during the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries were the superior Lords of Kintail. . A rhyme gives it thus : MacKenneth, great Earl of the North, The Lord of Loch Carron, Glensheil and Seaforth. The name Mackenzie was originally Mac-Choinnich, but the Gaelic patronymic was unpronounceable to the Saxon tongue and the simpler name Mackenzie is its altered form. The domain of the Mackenzles lies In the northern portion of Scotland and their ancient stronghold is Islandonian, a fortress castle in Kintail, built on an insulated rock at the extremity of Lochalsh and the junction of Loch Duich and Loch Long, the whole forming, it is agreed by several authorities, the Itus of Ptolemy and Richard Cirencester. The jurisdiction of the chief extended over the districts of Kintail, Lochalsh, etc. The clan Mackenzie was long one of the most powerful of the Highlands and continues to be one of the most numerous and influential. The Celtic muster roll during the reign of King James, in 1704. gives the number of Mackenzie men mustered as 1,200, while the full fighting force is given by Forbes as 2,500 men, which includes all the branches of the clan. Their war cry is "Tulach Ard," a mountain near Castle Don-nan, one of the ancient strongholds of the Mackenzies, and their Tartan plaid includes soft tones of green that suggest the mosses of the forest : blue, whispering of the lakes, Interlined with fine stripes of red and white, while under all is a subtone of black. The coat of arms is a stag's head puissant, bleeding at the forehead, borne on an aiure field, supported by two greyhounds. The crest is a dexter arm bearing a naked sword surrounded with the motto "Fide parta, Fde aucta." The history of the coat of arms is interesting, and to be understood an ancient legend concerning the origin of the clan must be given. It is as follows : An Irisn nobleman named Colin or Cailean Fitzgerald, son of the Earl of Kildare, or Desmond, was driven from Ireland in 1262 and toot refuge at the court of the youthful Scottish King, Alexander III, who was at that time preparing for an expected Invasion of the King of Norway? Colin, the Irish stranger, fought bravely in the defense of the Scotch and helped conquer the invaders at the famous battle of Largs. After conquering the Norwegian King, Cailean Fitzgerald was sent to garrison the western boundaries of Alexander's domain, who settled him as the Governor of Islandonian, and was said to have granted him a charter giving to Colin and his successors all the lands of Kintail for faithful, service rendered in both war and peace. The charter is said to have been signed at Kincardine, supposed to be situated on the River Dee, and at that time an incident is reported to have occurred In the Forest of Mar which led to the adoption of the coat of arms. The King Alexander was hunting when an infuriated stag, pursued by hounds, dashed toward and attempted to attack the sovereign. Colin Fitzgerald, who was of the royal hunting party, gallantly Interposed his own person between the King and the frenzied animal, letting fly at the same moment an arrow; which struck the stag between the eyes, causing its death. The King, In acknowledgment of his gratitude, granted his rescuer the armorial bearings given above, which -continued to be the distinctive arms of the Mackenzies of Seaforth until it was considered expedient, as corroborating their claims upon the wide possessions of the MacLeods of the Lews to substitute tlie crest of that ancient clan, namely ,a mountain (Tulach Ard) in aflmes, surcharged with the words "Luceo non uro" with the ancient shield supported by two savages naked and wreathed about the head with laurel, armed with clubs issuing fire, which are the bearings now used by representatives of the ancient Mackenzies of. Kintail. At Brahan. Castle, one of the seats of the Mackenzies, still hangs a painting by the noted academician, Benjamin West, the rub-ject of which Is the dramatic incident of the royal hunt and Colin Fitzgerald's daring rescue of the King Alexander. One writer says of the Mackenzies : "Until the forfeiture of the Lords of the Isles the Mackenzies always held their lands from the Earls of Ross and followed their banner in the field, but after the forfeiture of that great and powerful earldom the Mackenzies rapidly rose on the ruins of the MacDonalds to the great power, extent of territorial possession and almost regal magnificence for which they were afterward distinguished among the other great clans of the North." Scotch heraldic blazonings are preserved with rigid exactness and a peculiar characteristic is the lack of strange and often uncouth animals as supporters of their shields. In past centuries the Scotch engaged in tournaments permitted their henchmen to stand by their shields in naked savageness or native plaids and thus supported their coats of arms are shown. The signal mountain with top aflame and the blazing torches held .as clubs by the supporters is vivid reminder of early days when the fire signal of danger threatened GEMS FROM Poems are like paintings: some close by. Some at a distance most delight the eye.jjoracs. SONKET. BY MlCHELAXGELO. If it be true that any beauteous thing . Raises the pure and just desire of man ' From earth to God, the eternal fount of all, Such I believe my love ; for as in her, So fair, in whom I all besides forget, I view the gentle work of her Creator,' I have no care for any other thing. Whilst thus I love. Nor Is it marvelous. Since the effect Is not of my own power. If the soul doth, by nature tempted forth, Enamored through the eyes. Repose upon the eyes which it resembleth, And through them rlseth to the Primal Love, As to its end, and honors In admiring ; For who adores the Maker needs must love his work. was flashed to the clan from Tulach Ard, and the watchword of the gathering place sped from hand to hand in the cross of fire. The badge of the Mackenzies is the holly, and for carrying these marks of distinction after 1745 some of the clan were subjected to the penalties of the disarming act. The Mackenzie clan is entitled by Its rank to certain ceremonious musical features in their clan life, such as their appropriate musical salutes, laments for the dead, etc. The following is a list of the piobrachds and other military music of the Mackenzies, still preserved and entered, it is said, in the orderly book of the Seventy-second Regiment, the first that was raised from the clan : Surachan Daybreak. Tulloch ard Cruinneachdh, gathering or turnout. Failte mhic coinnich Salute when the chief come on the field. An cuilfhionn Slow march. Cats teal donnan Quick march. Caber feidh The charge.

When Robert Bruce in his wanderings after he left the Island of Rachrin, in the North of Ireland, was lost for a time and supposed by many to have perished from exposure, the records of Kintail relate that he was concealed and protected in true knightly fashion by John, son of Kenneth, chief of the clan in the fastness of Islandonian, until again able to take the field against his enemies. At the battle of Bannockburn in 1314 Mackenzie of Kintail led 500 of his own men to the support of Bruce. At a later day Roderick Mackenzie, who bore a strong resemblance to Prince Charles, fought with the "Chevalier," as Prince Charles was called, at the battle of Cullo-den. Defeated and surrounded by the troops of King George II, Mackenzie disdained either flight or submission. He attacked his enemies single-handed and died fighting, sword In hand, exclaiming as he died, "You have slain your prince !" To this generous sacrifice is chiefly attributed the escape of Prince. Charles, for whose head a reward of 30,000 had been offered. Being mistaken for the Prince, Mackenzie was beheaded and his head presented for his leader's head, and those scouring the country in search of the Chevalier relaxed their vigilance. To revert again to the descent of the Mackenzies, the family records published in various forms state It to be of pure Scoto-Gaelic descent, with a strain of Irish. The Iona Club Transaction gave the descent in 1450, as follows : "The genealogy of the Clan Kenneth : Murdoch, son of Kenneth, son of John, son of Kenneth, son of Angus, son of Christian, son of Adam, son of Gil-leoin-Oig of the Aird." King David II of Scotland Is said to have confirmed the charter of the Earl of Ros3 for the lands of Klntale in 1344, and after the forfeiture of the Lords of the Isles the clan, like all others in the West, became independent. Kenneth I, son of Angus of Islandonian Castle, appears to have been a nephew of William, third Earl of Ross, and the energy with which the young chief gar-risoped his castle with relatives and friends very greatly disturbed the serenity of the old Earl, who began to fear in his youthful relative a too powerful ruler. War between the two was interrupted by the death of the Earl and the strength and importance of Kenneth's leadership was not further disputed. By his prudence, popularity and power he was able to keep order in his own district and extend his influence over most of the adjoining isles. Alexander, seventh chief of Kintail, accompanied James I in 1426 in his expedition to the North. John, the ninth chief, followed James IV of Scotland to Flodden, where a battle disastrous to the Scots was fought near the Cheviot Hills and the chief narrowly escaped being made a prisoner. He was faith- Jr . -s .'s&c'X ' W--': s - X ? -js-, jV - - Vs; - V V'jv ,w - y , Vl-x .w2',. .

For his loyalty to his royal mistress, Colin Mackenzie -was afterward pardoned by the Regent Murray, and Kenneth, his eldest son, was raised to the peerage In 1609 as Lord Mackenzie of Kintail. From this Kenneth descended the Mackenzies of Pluscar-dine and Lochslyne, and his eldest son, Colin Mackenzie, was created 'Earl of Seaforth In 1623. The Earl of Seaforth and his brother John of Lochslyne dying without children, the title devolved upon his, George Mackenzie, who succeeded Earl Colin as second Earl of Seaforth, who went to Holland after the murder of Charles I and was subsequently Secretary of State for Scotland. Kenneth Mackenzie, third Earl of Seaforth, was born at Brahan Castle In 1635, and was a loyal cavalier. He was excepted THE POETS TEMP: CHARLES I.

Head of the Clan Mackenzie. from pardon by Cromwell and his estates seized, but upon the restoration of Charles II the Earl of Seaforth was restored to his honors, and he was made High Sheriff of Ross, in which office he was succeeded by his eldest son, Kenneth. Kenneth Mackenzie, fourth Earl, was one of the Privy Council to James VII and chosen a companion of the most noble Order of the Thistle on the revival of that ancient order, in 1687j. He followed his royal master to Ireland and France, through war and exile, and was created Marquis of Seaforth. William, fifth Earl, succeeded at a most important era in the history of Scotland, just when the country was divided on the great question of union with England. He was attainted in 1517, and in fighting for the Jacobite cause was severely wounded in battle. . He later escaped to France, until pardoned by King George I. He died in 1740, and would have been succeeded by his son Kenneth, Lord Fortrose, as sixth Earl, but for the attainder. Kenneth Mackenzie, son of Lord Fort-rose, repurchased the possessions of the family from the Crown ; was created an Irish peer as Viscount Fortrose, and in 1771 was restored to the Earldom of Sea- MACKENZIE The latter is the present head of the MacKenzie Maryland. fcrth. In recognition of this royal favor he and the MacKenzie clan raised in 1778 the old Seaforth Highlanders, afterward numbered as the Seventy-second, 1,000 strong, for service in India. In 1793 the clan, under Huniberston, who died Earl of Seaforth in 1S16, raised the Seventy-eighth Regiment, commonly, known as the Ross-shire Buffs. Both regiments are now formed in one, as the first and second battalions of the "Duke of Albany's Seaforth Highlanders." One of the somber pages of the Mackenzie history is that written in acts of legal persecution by Sir George Mackenzie (brother of the second Earl of Seaforth). appointed Lord Advocate of Scotland in 1659. A man of deep learning, but whose conception of the mission of prosecuting attorney was to prosecute irrespective of the guilt or innocence of those accused. Sir George Mackenzie achieved for himslf the fear and hatred of the Scotch people while living and the sobriquet of "the bluidy (bloody) Mackenzie" after death. Loyal, gifted, founding and building up for Scotland the famous Advocates' Library, a man whose writings include essays upon how to be. happy and direct the way as depending upon inner spiritual life, this man is still hated by his people, and his grave in the crowded churchyard of Greyfriars1 at Edinburgh shunned of men. It is an Imposing tomb built after the style of a classic temple, and there Is a story current to the effect that a criminal sentenced to the gallows once achieved liberty by hiding for a long period In the tomb of Sir George Mackenzie, the one place In Edinburgh that no man approached. Twice in the writings of Sir Walter Scott the figure of Lord Advocate Mackenzie passes across the pages, a gifted but guilty and gloomy figure, and his memory falls across the canvas of centuries "the bluidy Mackenzie" of all time. Other literary men of the Mackenzie family have been John Mackenzie, who wrote "The Beauties of Gaelic Poetry" and other works, to whose memory a monument has been erected by his Gaelic admirers. Alexander Mackenzie, editor of the Celtic Magazine, who has also written a history and genealogy of the Mackenzie clan and "Historical Tales and Legends of the Highlands," and Henry Mackenzie, who was author of "The Man of Feeling." A sketch of the Scottish Mackenzies would be incomplete without some allusion to the- prophecies of the Brahan Seer, whose revelations, due, it is said, to second sight, have been made the subject of a most interesting volume written by Alex ander Mackenzie, F. S. A. (Scot.), with an introductory chapter by Andrew Lang. . The seer was one Kenneth Mackenzie, of humble birth, who was a crystal gazer, born at Baile-na-Cille, in the Parish of Uig and Island of Lews, about the beginning of the seventeenth century. He was celebrated throughout the whole Highlands for his great powers of divination and his relations to the invisible world ; but, born on the domain of the Seaforths, his association was mainly with that branch of the Mackenzie family. A hundred and fifty years before the Caledonian canal was projected the seer foretold that ships should sail east and west by the back of Tomna-hurlch. near Inverness. His gift of second sight led to his death, and his last prophecy concerning the house of Seaforth has been peculiarly fulfilled several generations afterward. He was summoned by Isobel, Countess of Kenneth, wife of the third Earl of Seaforth, to Brahan Castle. The Earl had been absent many months In Paris and the Countess, anxious concerning his welfare, ordered the seer to reveal through divination where the Earl was and what he was doing. Strongly against his will and after bribes and threats had been exerted, the prophet pictured the Earl forgetful of wife and children and absorbed in the gayeties of the French Capital. The Countess was so angry and humiliated that she commanded that the seer be put to death as indicative of her disbelief in his prophecies. This was done, but before dying the condemned man once more applied his crystal to his eyes and said :."I see into the far future and I read the doom of the race of my oppressor. The long-descended line of Seaforth will ere many generations have passed end in extinction and in sorrow. I see a chief, the last of his house, both deaf and dumb. He will be the father of four fair sons, all of whom he will follow to the tomb. He will live careworn and die mourning, knowing that the honors of his line are to be extinguished forever and that no future chief of the Mackenzies shall bear rule at Brahan or in Kintail. After lamenting over. the last and most promising of his sons he himself shall sink into the grave and the remnant of his possessions shal.l be inherited by a white-colfed (or white-hooded) lassie from the east, and she is to kill her sister. And as a sign by which It may be known that these things are coming to pass there shall be four great lairds in the days of the last deaf and dumb Seaforth Gairloch, Chis-holm, Grant and Ramsay of whom one shall be buck-toothed, another hair-lipped, another half-witted and the fourth a stammerer. "Chiefs distinguished" by these personal marks shall be the allies and neighbors of the last Seaforth, and when he looks around him and sees them he may know that his sons are doomed to death; that his broad lands shall pass away to the stranger, and that his race shall come to an end." Francis Humberston Mackenzie, the "last of .the Seaforths," was born in 1794 and lost his hearing from the effects of a severe attack of scarlet fever when a boy. He had a fine family of four sons and six daughters, but the sons all died, and his grief was such that in the latter part of his life he refused to speak, and he finally died himself, in 1815 or 1813. His modern title became extinct, the chiefdom of the Mackenzies, divested of its rank and honor, passed to a remote collateral, who succeeded to no portion of the property, and the great Seaforth estates were inherited by a white-hooded lassie from the East Lord Seaforth's eldest surviving daughter, the- Honorable Mary Frederica Elizabeth Mackenzie, who had married n 1804 Admiral Sir Samuel Hood. Bart, A. B., admiral of the West India station. Sir Samuel died very nearly at the same time as Lord Seaforth. so that his youthful wife was a recent widow at the time and returned home from India in her widow's weeds to take possession of her paterral inheritance. She was thus literally a white-hooded lassie (a young woman in widow's weeds and a Hood by name) from THE MACKENZIE ARMS the East. Later Lady Hood married a second time a Mr. James Stewart, grandson of the sixth Earl of Halloway, who assumed the name of Mackenzie. Mrs. James Stewart Mackenzie was unfortunately the instrument of her sister's death at a later period, since she was driving a pony carriage of which the ponies took fright and ran away, throwing both ladies out and injuring the younger, the Hon. Caroline Mackenzie, so severely as to cause her death.- The final portion of the prophecy concerning the passing of the estate of the Seaforths has also been fulfilled. One writer says: "One section after another of the estate had to be sold. The remaining portion of - Kintail, the sunny braes of Hoss, the church land of Cba-nonry.'the Barony of Plucarden and the Island of Lews a principality in itself were disposed of one after the other, until now nothing remains of the vast estates of this Illustrious house except Brahan Castle and a mere remnant of their ancient pat" rlmony." Sir Walter Scott, in his poem entitled "Lament for the Last of the Seaforths," refers thus to the white-hooded lassie from the East: And thou, gentle dame, who must bear, to thy grief For thy clan and thy country the cares of a chief. Whom brief rolling moons in six changes hare left Of thy husband and father and brethren bereft; To thine ear of affection how sad is the hail That salutes thee, the heir of the line of Kintail t Sibell, noted as the beautiful Duchess of Sutherland, eldest daughter of the late Francis Earl of Cromertie. was declared In March, 1895, to hold all the titles of her father, who died in 1893, and is the present head of the house of Seaforth, which 13 the eldest branch of the Mackenzies. Kenneth Mackenzie, of Gairloch, was created a baronet in 1629, and there are six other baronetcies borne by members of the clan, which includes over 30 distinct houses or families. Khouter Mackenzie, in the Crimea, is so named from Admiral Mackenzie, who commanded the Black sea fleet under Katharine II and fortified Sevastopol. To Be Concluded Xext Sunday. .

Editors: "Descendant" In The Scnt of April 16 Inquires about the family of Sir Thomas Lawrence, Bart., Secretary of Maryland. There is, I believe, no full printed pedigree of his family, which was of Chelsea, Middlesex, where there is a Lawrence Chapel in the venerable parish church of St. Luke, in which many of the name are buried. Thos. Lawrence, buried there In October. 1594, had a son John, of Chelsea and Delaford. Bucks, born 1588, created a baronet October 9, 1620, married Grissei.-daughter and coheiress of Gervase Gibbon, of Benenden, Kent, and died in November, 1630. A grandson. Sir Thomas, the third baronet, was Secretary of the Colony of Maryland. September 20, 1690, his appointment was revoked and given to his son, Thomas Lawrence, Esq., during pleasure. He died April 14, 1701, and July 11 of that year his father was reappointed. There is a good deal about his quarrels with the House of Burgesses in the Colonial records. Returning to England he was burled at Chelsea April 25, 1714. He married Anne, daughter of Mrs. E. English (burled at Chelsea in 1710), who was buried at Chelsea November 2, 1723. Issue : Anne, baptized at St. Luke's, Chelsea, May 4. 1675, and John, baptized November 5. 1676 ; married an. Elizabeth, who died in 1701, and sold an estate at Chelsea March 26, 1706. The family disappears from the records in that generation and the baronetcy became extinct. From the Maryland records It Is clear that the secretary-baronet was in urgent need of money and he would seem to have died in poverty. The coat of arms of the family and several other Lawrence genealogies may be found in pages 387 to 435 of the Thomas book at the Maryland Historical Library. D. B. T. Messrs. Editors: In reply to "E.

Editors: I have been much interested in the articles on the Banss family in the Sunday editions of The Sex of June 4 and 11 and am in search of farther information. During the Revolution there was a Banks family In Granville county, North Carolina, but how long they had been there we are not informed. In 17S5 they removed from Granville to Elbert county, Georgia. From an old family Bible is obtained the following: Children of Thomas Banks by first wife, Sarah Chandler: Richard Banks, born August 23, 1744; Thomas Banks, born November 25, 1747; Sallie Chandler Banks, born June 4, 1746. By second wife, Betty White: Ralph Banks, born October 21, 1757, died August 24, 1S24. in Elbert county, Georgia, leaving 14 children : Betty Banks, born 1761 ; Dun-ston,born 1763 ; William, born 1769 ; James, born 1770; John, born 1774. By third wife, Susannah Pretty: Thomas, born December 23, 17S8. The senior Thomas Banks died in 17S9 in Elbert county, Georgia. It is believed they went to Granville county from King and Queen county, Virginia, but of this there is no proof, nor have we any record to show from what English family they are descended or how connected. The family was wealthy and very prominent. Any information leading to its ancestral connection will be appreciated. How is the Banks family of Essex county connected with the family of Sir John Banks, of Dortet, who died In 1644, or that of Canterbury or Winstanly Hall. Selma, Ala. J. A. G. Messrs. Editors: If "A.

Editors: The family of MacCubbin was slightly touched upon in your article on the Lingan genealogy recently. May I ask if you will publish some data, if you have any further points relative to this MacCubbin family? I have record of some MacCubbin wills, as follows : John MacCubbin's will probated July 31, 1686; Moses MacCubbin' will, probated April 24,1733; Samuel MacCubbin's will, probated December 11,1739; Zacharlab MacCubbin's will, probated March 24, 1753 ; Samuel MacCubbin's will, probated June 12, 1745 ; John MacCubbin's will, probated May 7,1752; Zacharlah MacCubbin's will, probated December 18,1756: Charles MacCubbin's will, probated June S. 1763 ; Rachel MacCubbin's will, probated January 13, 1774 ; Moses MacCubbin's will, probated February 9, 1774. John MacCubbin's will of 1686 mentions his sons, Samuel, William, Zacharlah, Moses and John, and bis wife, Elleanour. Rachel MacCubbin, whose will was probated in 1774, was a sister of Richard MacCubbin.
