History of the Clan Macrae


Archibald of Ardintoul

(Not clear from the History Book: Was Captain Archibald Macra Chisolm the same person as Archibald of Ardintoul?  If so, merge these two pages!)

Father of Colonel Sir John Macra of Ardintoul

See The Rev. John Macrae's MS. History of the Clan

Archibald of Ardintoul wrote in 1817, in a letter to his son, Colonel Sir John Macra of Ardintoul, then in India, that he will endeavor to add to the genealogy down to his own day.  A year earlier, Sir John had made a copy of the copy of the History made by Farquhar Macrae of Inverinate in 1786.
