See The Rev. John Macrae's MS. History of the Clan
The chief written authority for the early history of the Macraes is the MS. genealogy of the Clan, which was written towards the close of the seventeenth century by the last Episcopalian minister of Dingwall, the Rev. John Macrae, who died in 1704. The original MS., which appears to be now lost, is believed, without any apparent evidence, however, to have been at one time in the possession of the late Dr. W. F. Skene.
