Lachlan Lubanach Maclean From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Lachlan Lubanach Maclean of Duart, 5th Clan Chief 5th Clan Maclean Chief 1st Laird of Duart In office circa 1365 - 1405 Preceded by John Dubh Maclean, 4th Chief, father Succeeded by Red Hector of the Battles Maclean, 6th Chief, son Personal details Born Lachlan Lubanach Maclean circa 1350 Died 1405 Spouse(s) Mary Mcdonald (m. 1367) Children Eachuinn Ruadh nan cath Maclean Parents Iain Dubh mac Gilliemore Maclean Residence Castle Duart Lachlan Lùbanach Maclean, 5th Chief (flourished 1370s) was Chief of Clan Maclean. He was the first Maclean to occupy Castle Duart as the 1st Laird of Duart.[1] His brother, Hector Reaganach Maclean was the progenitor of the Lochbuie Macleans.[2]

Biography[edit] The date of the beginning of Lachainn Lubanach as fifth chief of MacLean, and successor to his father, Iain Dubh mac Gilliemore Maclean, is not known. It was probably before 1365.[3]

His feuds with the MacDougalls and Camerons were during that period after he became chief. John of Islay, Lord of the Isles, lived until 1386, when he was succeeded by his son Domhnall of Islay, Lord of the Isles. Under Domhnall, as the second Lord of the Isles, Lachlan took due precaution to have his lands confirmed by charter, which occurred in 1390.[3]

He married Mary Mcdonald, the daughter of John of Islay, Lord of the Isles.[1][2] They had five sons:[3]

Eachuinn Ruadh nan cath Maclean, also known as Hector, his successor in Duard John Maclean Lachlan Maclean Neil Maclean Somerled Maclean Lachlan Lubanach lived to a great age, but the date of his death is not known, but it must have been before 1405, for on January 28, 1405 of that year, at Dundonald, Hector was a witness to a charter confirmed by the king in favour of James Kennedy.

Lachlan Lubanach is generally regarded as the first Maclean of Duart because the oldest recorded charter in existence is in his favour. But that does not imply that he was the first possessor.[3]

A fictionalized legendary account of Lachlan's marriage and coming in possession of Duart was given by Fitzroy Maclean in The Isles of The Sea.
