Maurice, son of Christopher (gen 6)

(Previously: The Rev. Finlay Macrae of Lochalsh)

5. Maurice (gen 7), fifth son of Christopher (gen 6), is said to have been a strong and industrious man, who loved Kintail better than any other place.  He had advantageous offers from Earl Colin to go to Kinlochewe;  but he would not go, and the Earl, appreciating his devotion to his native place, gave him his choice of a tack in it.  He was a man of means, and gave money to the Laird of Chisholm, for which he and his successors had grazing in Glen Affric till the principle was paid.  Maurice was drowned in Strathglass on his way home from Inverness, and was buried in Kintail.  He left issue.
