About James Macrory, Lord of Bute

James Macrory, Lord of Bute, son of Angus, killed 1210 by the men of Skye, along with his father and two brothers.


  • Jean Macrory

"The surviving sons of Ragnhilda -- Ranald, Dugall, and Angus -- divided the bulk of Somerled's possessions between themselves. Angus, the younger, received a scattered patrimony comprising the 'rough bounds' of Garmoran -- Moidart, Morar, Knoydart, and Arisaig, to the north of Ardnamurchan, and also the islands of Arran and Bute. In 1192 he quarrelled with Ranald and defeated him in a battle, but in 1210 he was himself killed together with his three sons by the Norsemen of Skye who had invaded Moidart. His possessions were seized by Ranald's descendants, although his eldest son James had left an heiress Jane [Jean], who married Alexander, son of Walter Fitz-Alan the Steward. Through her the Stewarts prosecuted a claim to Arran and Bute -- which they eventually obtained after some resistance." (Williams, 127)
