My father's name was
Alastair MacIntyre and it was he who petitioned the Lord Lyon in 1955
for the Chieftainship of the Clan MacIntyre. This claim was based on
documents contained in an old writing chest bearing the name Glenoe and
certain artefacts with Glenoe engraved on them. Unfortunately the case
could not be genealogically proven but he was granted arms as the 16th
Chief of the MacIntyres of Camus na h Erie(sic). Subsequently the Chief
of Glenoe was found in America and Martin MacIntyre's great work on the
subject is on your website.
I visited this site last
month and took the enclosed photographs which you may care to put in the
MacIntyre entry especially with your own family connection.
Ian MacIntyre, 17th Chief
of the MacIntyres of Camus na h Erie.
Our thanks to
Ian Macintyre for sending
this into us
