I would like to hear more about the MacGregor Proscription and
it's time frame in history. Weren't the MacGregors the clan or family
forced out of Arygll by the Campbells sometime in the 1400s? Am I even
close? Please tell me more...
Hello Karen and other
" Cousins " on the list --
Just a reminder that the areas
that you are listing " proofs " from , are
time period and in the heart of the homeland of , in many cases ,
the MACGREGOR PROSCRIPTION !!!
That is to say , those
having the MACGREGOR last name were forced by law to
use any surname
available other than their own !!!
I had posted an article some time
ago titled " Sinclair as an Alias . !!
To establish any case at
all for a name transition you will have to use a
time period for "
Proof " before 1600 .
Just for reference , I am a Sinclair on my
maternal side and a Magregor sept
on my paternal , so I am very aware of
the histories of both clans .
