THE TARTAN

Here’s to it!
The fighting sheen of it,
The yellow, the green of it,
The white, the blue of it,
The swing, the hue of it,
The dark, the red of it,
Every thread of it!

The fair have sighed for it,
The brave have died for it,
Foemen sought for it,
Heroes fought for it,
Honour the name of it,
The Tartan!

A SCOTTISH PROVERB: DEEP IS THE LOWING OF A COW ON UNFORMILIAR GROUND.

CLANN CHON-DOUIGH OR CLANN DUILEGH, CLANN MHIC RAING

The Gaelic name Clann Mhic Raing came to be used to replace the Gaelic name Clann Chon-duigh or Clann Duilegh.

The family by its name claimed descent from the same ancestors as the MacLean’s of Argyle. The exact origin of the name is not known although the Gaelic word is said to be the word for “Frenchmen.”

The Rankin’s were pipers to the MacLean’s, when they were in power. The Rankin school of Piping was renowned until 1760.

Fr. John Angus researched and found at the Battle of Glencoe the very first person killed was Duncan Rankin, one of our ancestors.

The Rankin’s were a sept of Clan Ranold MacDonald. Clann Mhic Raing alias – Clann Chon-Duigh alias – Clann Duiligh but they had a falling-out with the MacDonald’s and joined the MacLean’s.

RANKIN – MAC-IAIN-ABRACH MAC LEANS Translation of the word ‘clan’ is children.

RAND-KIN, A diminutive of names in RAND, eg RANDULF or RAN-KIN for RANNULF
Diminutives in uc of Old English original survival. Most are a derivative of French names. The most common suffixes are: ot, et, in, en, el (as in Rankin) SUFFIX KIN – Was used as a personal name, used to distinguish son from father and sometimes used as a pet name. Kin seems to have come from the Netherlands. Kin names are common in Cheshire – 13th century Taken from “Derivation of Family Names, Arthur”

The name Rankin may be derived from the Danish – RANK, right, upright, erect. If the name is Gaelic it would come from ROINN, a promontory, a name of place. RAN-KIN in the Dutch signifies pranks, tricks.

It is said the name Rankin is from the Scottish lowlands and is an English name????
I do not know where the name originated. All I can testify to is my own family ancestors who lived in Broad Cove, Cape Breton. They were all Gaelic speakers. My great grandparents and my grandmother spoke only Gaelic. I heard Gaelic spoken and sung in my family home in Halifax. Nova Scotia, all the time. Our neighbours and my parents friends were Cape Bretoners who all spoke the Gaelic. It was perhaps spoken as much or perhaps more than English in our home.

The pet name for John was Hann – John taken from JEHAN before c1090. Bertelmeu was taken from Bartholomy

Information about the areas of Bolyne, Bohuntine, Lochaber, Scotland

Bohuntine lies to the north east of Fort William and to the west of the River Roy and north of Roybridge. It is situated in Glen Roy, the Highland Council Area.

Towns near Bohuntine are Monessie, Roybridge, Glen Spean Roybridge is found where the long cul-de-sac of Glen Roy from the north meets Glen Spean, which carries the A86 from Spean Bridge to Newtonmore.

The line now followed by the A86 was first turned into a road by Thomas Telford in 1818, who also built a bridge to carry his new road over the River Roy as it flows down to meet the River Spean. In 1894 the West Highland Railway passed through en route to Fort William and a station was built here which, for want of a better name, was called Roy Bridge.
In the late 1920s Roybridge developed further to provide housing and other services for workers on the huge Lochaber Project. When finally finished in 1943 this comprised a network of dams and tunnels across the area that included the creation of Loch Laggan by the building of the 900ft Laggan Dam.
The Lochaber Project culminated with the construction of a 15 foot diameter tunnel that ran for 15 miles from Loch Treig under the Ben Nevis range to emerge 600ft up on the hillside above Fort William. The water flowing down the hillside pipes is harnessed by a power station which, in turn, provides the energy for Fort William’s aluminum industry.
Today’s Roybridge retains its railway station on the line from Fort William to Glasgow and is ideally placed to provide a quieter alternative to Fort William as a touring base for the Highlands. The village retains a post office, village hall and shops, plus a primary school.
Roybridge also has a large Roman Catholic church, St Margaret’s. This was built just off the main road in 1929 to serve the needs of the large population involved in the Lochaber Project.
Glencoe & Dalness (17 Miles)* the breathtaking peaks and spectacular waterfalls of Glencoe bear silent witness to the origin, history and wildlife of this atmospheric glen. The steep-sided mountains are popular for climbing and walking

Lochaber Gathering, Wednesday, July 30, 1986, Mabou, C.B.

Cille Choirill Church Restoration Benefit

In 1932 the Old Brae Lochaber Chapel in Scotland was completely restored through the efforts of the late pastor of Mabou, Father John MacMaster and his devoted parishioners the descendants of Lochaber and the Mabou Pioneer Scots. This historic Church and burial ground of the ancestors of the Mabou Pioneer Scots requires restoration once again. To initiate a year long fund drive – July 30, 1986 has been designated as Lochaber Day in Mabou and a Church restoration Fund established at the Mabou Credit Union.

St. Cairrail’s churchyard, the most beautiful cemetery that I ever knew;
A pretty, sunny, smooth enclosure where hundreds now lie.
Angels’ Grove, Sunday’s Dell, where those of my kind have lain for years,

Lochaber Day

Opened by the Bishop of Hebron

On Sunday 10th July, 1932 the Right Reverend Alexander McDonald, Bishop of Hebron, formerly of Victoria B.C. opened the restored Church of St. Cairrail in the Braes of Lochaber. The church dates back from the very earliest Christian times – the papal Registers (in the Rolls series) contain evidence that St. Beoan, a brother of St. Cairrail was the patron of Kilmore in Argullshire. At Taynuilt, close to Kilmore in Cill Easbuig Chaorrail – the Church of Bishop Caorrail…whose feast was kept on the 13th June. The old church in Lochaber is amother of his foundations. From the time immemorial it has been known as Cill Chaorrail,…Alan Nan Creach, about 1488 restored or rebuilt it: but is
was old, centuries before the time of that famous freebooter. The Church has been
restores by the effort of Rev. John MacMaster of Mabou, Cape Breton, whose grandparents emigrated from Lochaber.

The restored church is one of the seven churches built in penance by Alan nan Creach in 1488 fir deadly raids on the neighbouring territory. The Bishop of Hebron at the ceremony of restoration gave a reminiscent speech, which is reproduced in part.
“An interesting occasion has called us here to-day, an occasion to be remembered, on e that has its roots in a far historic past. We are come to dedicate to the service and worship of God. This Church of St, Cairrail, now risen, as it were, from its ashes, now restored once more to its primitive use and purpose. Much water has passed under the bridges of Roy and Spean since first it was erected here, since the famous Alain nan Creach repented him to the wrongs he had done his neighbours and was led to make reparation in the spirit of a true penitent by building his seven churches, of which this is one. He had sinned by committing depredations on his fellowman, but the faith in God and in His Christ was strong within him and taught him to seek pardon by the way of penance and good works.

From the Braes of Cape Breton

Our forefathers were loyal to their faith in times of stress and trial and they crossed the wide ocean and hewed out for themselves homes in the great primeval forests of Cape Breton Island and Nova Scotia and in many other parts of the New World. There seems to be a certain fitness, therefore, in the fact that I, a grandson of the men and women who left these Braes more than a hundred years ago , should be here to-day to dedicate this church., My forefathers and theirs and the fathers of many I see before me are sleeping about hers. My grandparents on both sides of the house were born and bred in these Braes, and their forbearers for many a century before.

Six centuries ago on e Alexander Beaton came hither from the Isle of Skye, and so far as I know, he was the only one of my ancestors who was not a native of Lochaber. He married here a daughter or sister of Gillies MacBain, famed for his prowess in battle of Culloden; she made a convert of him, and we cont forty-eight priests and nuns, many of them still living, who are descended from that pair. This is one reason for the congruity of my being here to-day to dedicate this church.

A second reason is my spiritual descent, if I may so call it, from men who helped to keep the torch of faith burning here in Lochaber and across the sea where so many of the children of Lochaber have found a home. The Right Reverend Bishop Ranold MacDonald, first Vicar Apostolic and Bishop of the Western District, scion too of Sliach an

Tighe, who was buried in the church at Fort William just a hundred years ago, was my father in God.

It was Bishop Ranold who ordained to the priesthood the Very Rev. Alexander MacDonald. Vicor General of the Diocese of of Arichat now by change if see and title the Diocese of Antigonish. He was known and loved as Sagart Mor, first pastor of Mabou, my native parish, whose pwople are nearly all of them children of Lochaber folk. It was from him I got the right of faith in baptism as you can see that apart from the faculty co graciously granted me by the Bishop of the Diocese and the pastor of this parish, by virtuye of spiritual descent I have a sort of right to preside here to-day.

Rev. John MacMaster of Mabou

Last, but not least, is the fact that I represent the man to whose indomitable Highland spirit and unfaltering trust in the providence of God we owe the restoration of this church, Rev.John MacMaster pastor of my native parish in Mabou. Few indeed are those in whom the love of Scotland and of Lochaber burns so brightly as it does in his soul; few are they to whom it has been given to do the things that he has done. Of churches and chapels this is the ninth that he has built and of these no fewer than seven out of his own resources though his sole resource has ever been the providence of God. Glad and proud then I am indeed to represent him to-day and to speak these words on his behalf.

Catherine Campbell of the Braes

My grandmother was Catherine Campbell. Born in these Braes one hundred and fifty-five years ago and married here before she went with her husband to America. I remember her well, for I was eleven years of age when she died at the age of 92. She was a shining example of the devotion of the people of the Braes from time immemorial to the great Sacrifice which is offered here this morning, for the offering of which this church was erected before Columbus discovered America. She used to tell us how the members of her family would get up before daylight and proceed one by one, or two by two at the most to the little Tigh Popuill, the House of Prayer in this neighborhood, if not on this spot, to assist at mass. They drew blinds down on the windows for fear anyone should see the priest celebrating. The penalty for the first offence was banishment, and hanging for the second. They themselves, the faithful people present, would be liable to forfeiture of their goods.

When she was now a very old woman, my grandmother use to get me, then a very little boy, to come with her to the table where she knelt in prayer, and turn over the leaves of the prayer book. She did not herself know a word in English, bur I should I be the one who should think her uneducated. “What is the priest doing?” she would ask; and now I get away from this long drawn out personal note to say something of the great sacrifice
which we are gathered here to-day to offer up to the Most High in this newly restored and dedicated temple.

Mac surnames take nic when prefixed by a female personal name. Example:
Mairi-nic-Dhomhnuill translates, is Mary the daughter of Donald?
