Dear All:

Please start a separate sub-thread under this
thread ( just do a reply) for each Clan ancestor.

The thread on this board (and the mailing list) is intended for
comments, hints on how to locate, and discussions
on those distant ancestors ( sometimes brick walls) that are
very hard to locate. Anyone with knowledge of the
Clan Ancestors or searching for ancestors and especially
the Clan Genealogist are especially encouraged to post
their finding on the Clan ancestors.

Please do not use this board for merely looking for
recent descendants. That function is better in the
Surname message boards and mailing lists.

Use the standard procedure in the subject header of
inserting your family ancestor information in the following format
NAME > location > dates

Best Wishes and Happy Hunting to All

Ewen M'Corquodell of Phanteslans, 1434

Classification: Biography
The earliest record I have been able to trace concerning the leaders of the MacCorquodales is a short mention in the Fourth Report of the Royal Commission on Historical Manuscripts, appendix, p. 479:
"Procutory of resignation, by Ewen M'Corquodell of Phanteslans, in favour of Sir Duncan Campbell of Lochaw and his heirs, of the patronage of the parish kirk of St. Peter, Dean of Lochaw. Dated 16th October, 1434."
A useful attempt to collect all available information on this Ewen and on the MacCorquodales of Fantilands, later to become Barons of MacCorquodale, was done years ago in a book entitled The Sons of the Baron (Edinburgh, 1932), but it is now in need of revision.
