The above Commission is designed for Mr McGrigor in Mailler More Glenartney for the present Capt Commandant in Crieff.

This John McGregor was McGregor or Drummond, Balnacuil, his parentage has not yet been traced, but he left a son, Alexander Mac¬Gregor, at Loch Katrine side, whose daughter, Henrietta, was the second wife of James X of Glengyle.

It is unnecessary here to dwell on the Battle of Culloden, 16th April 1746, and on the cruelties which followed it. The Prince's wanderings in the Western Highlands And the faithful loyalty of the Highlanders in whom he trusted are safe to he remembered with admiration and interest by friend and foe. With the departure of Prince Charles from Lochannaugh on Sept. 20th, 1746, for France, the short lived Romance came to an end. Many of his Chief adherents were executed and others driven into exile.

The following quotations are from the "Scots Magazine."

"1746. January. After the troops that guarded the Fords of Forth had moved to Edinburgh, Glengyle with the help of floats, the boats having been all destroyed, passed the river at the Frew and placed a guard on the South side, London Gazette."-See "Scots Magazine" for Jan. 1746.

"About the end of May 1746 Glengyle with a party of MacGregors were in the hill between Crieff and Dunkeld, and attempted to levy public money But they were obliged to make off upon Brigadier Mordaunt's detaching 300 men in quest of them.

"June 7. A body of 700 men entered Balquhidder, and proceeded to the Braes of Monteith. But not finding Glengyle and his party they burned his house and all the houses in Craigrostan possessed by the MacGregors, and carried the Cattle to Crieff."-" Scots Magazine."

The following particulars as to the conduct of Gregor Murray of Coinneachan and the conflicting directions he received from the two Dukes are interesting. [7]  

"1745. In August Duke James had sent orders to Gregor Murray at Coinneachan to raise the Glen Almond men and join Cope as he passed which he accordingly did at Amulrie. When the army reached Tay Bridge Gregor and his men left and proceeded to Blair to get further orders from Graham of Fintry the factor. He accompanied them back to the army which they rejoined at Dalnacardoch; but as Cope would allow them no pay with which to support themselves, they dispersed there and returned to their homes."

[page 382]
During the Prince's stay at Blair Castle which was from Aug.31 to Sep. 3, Duke William sent the following orders to Glen Almond.

Duke William to Gregor Murray of Fogfield (Coinneachan).
“Camp at Blair 2d Sep. 1745.

(Signed) "Atholl."

Elizabeth Campbell to Gregor Murray of Conneachan.
"Milne Rodge, Sep. 17, 1745. -Sir, My husband has bin this fiftin days in search of siven cous that was stolen out of the Bres of Lioeyn, and hei hat got two of them, and is gone a gene in sherch of the rest, and if his sone would return to his busines hie wold be satisfied to get a man a five pounds, but he is shure that his Grass the Duke of Atholl would not desire his son and monye tou, but if Mungo be determined to go and wants his father's faver, hie will sie to get his indenters discharged from his master, which will be easier to be had nou then after, which if hie dous not get whill the Hillandmen is in town it will return on his father and afterwards be his oun los, and my frind lives this to your care, and wei live him to be directed by God and his oun mind, for I should be sorey if hie shou'd due ane thing that shou'd be for his oun los. this withe my serves to your self and Mungo. and I ever am your humbell Serv:" (Signed) "Elizabeth Campbell."

This letter was taken amongst Gregor’s papers Feb. 1746, as also the following orders.

By William Duke of Atholl, Commander in Chief of his Majestie's Forces benorth the River of Forth.
"These are requiring and ordering you to raise a man on the Merk Land of our property of Glen Almond, and to march with them to this place so as you and they may be here friday next the 27 currt as you shall answer upon your and their peril. "Signed at Blair Castle, Sep.25. 1745. Atholl.

"Therfor, as you'l be answerable, neglect not in the safest, speediest and most convenient manner to wait on and conduct the above Laird of Monzie to our quarters.

“They are to he henceforth the onely standing troops of the nation; every Chief is to have a Collonel's commesseon, and all the other officers and souldiers to be just upon the same Regulations and to have the same pay as our Regular Troops commonly have, with this difference that the clans are not to ster from home except on muster days, and when the Service of the Crown makes it necessary.
"Now if the McGregors continue dispersed as they are they can expect no more than to be a nameless people.

I therefore beg that you be pleased to Raise as many of the name, without respect to particular families as possibly you can, wherever you discover them and to march them to the Army in what manner you please.
"Give them as much time to take care of their harvest as the circumstances of affairs allow. But so as to be with us before His Royall Highness leaves Edin.
“I am Dear Sir, Yours most affectionately John M'Gregore.

In a footnote the Duke of Atholl adds, "The writer was probably Balhaldie's second brother.' This is possible from the allusion to the writer's brother having influence with the Prince.

Neil McGlashan to Gregor Murray.
"Blair Castle, Oct. 7, 1745 -Dr Grigor,- His Grace orders that you, with the whole Glenalmond men 'twixt sixteen and sixty, officer as well as others, be att Donkeld tomorrow night or early Wednesday. except John Drummond in Newtoun who is allowed to remain at home for certain reasons, unless you have it in view to execute [page 384] the orders you got from his Grace In a day or two in which case you are to wait, but otherwayes you, nor the men are not.

Footnote by the Duke of Atholl.
"The reason for the above order was that on Oct 30 being King George's birthday a mob of persons rang the bells and lighted bonfires in Perth, and besieged Oliphant of Gask in the Council House till 8 a.m. 31; he being Deputy Governor in charge of the City during Lord Strathallan's absence.

"Logierait, Nov.23, 1745. -Sir,-Some days ago I had a letter from Lord Strathallan desiring to acquaint you per express to repair to Perth immediately with as many men as you could get together; but the storm was so high I could find none to undertake the journey before this day.

"Dear Gregor your most humble servant. D. Robertson."

Duke William to Gregor Murray, Coinneachan.
"Blair Castle, 7 Feb. 1746.- Sir,-Herewith is enclosed a general 'Crosstarie’ [8]   order for raising all the able bodied men in Glenalmond this order is executing through all Atholl, with the utmost exactness and expedition; and providing you have a mind to [page 385] efface the three different times you have forsook me, you'll without loss of time come here, & bring at least 50 good men with you. I am well assured there are arms for that number in the Country, so that I shall reckon you greatly wanting in your duty if you do not bring them all armed.
"The bearer being chose out as a trusty expeditious person, this is earnestly requiring you to get all the accounts & intelligence you can of the Enemie's motions, and without loss of time send it to me by this express, which shall ever be remembered to your advantage.

"Sir your affectionate humble Servant. Atholl."
“To Gr Murray or any other honest man in Glenalmond."

Gregor Murray to Mr Mungo Murray.
"Conachon, Feb. 8, 1746.-Sir,-I received his Gr/s orders and immediately sent an express for the officer, who lives four miles distance from this place, and on his way spoke to so many tennents, for we durst not make use of the Crosstarie for alarming the enemy, for there is above 200 of them laying at Crieff and Monizie, and a trup of horse at Drummond Castle, besides a partie of the Campbells, who comes up the king's road every day for information. By all accounts the enemy who marched to Perth on Thursday last is reckoned to be 12000 men, foot and horse, and I had sertain information this evening that a part of the enimie was to be at Dunkeld this night.
"As our frindes marched through this countray on Munday and Tuesday last, they both plundered and carried off a great many horses, and severals of them is not returned as yet. If the officer and I Can gett the men raised we shall come straight to Blair or wherever His Gr/ shall be. I am Sr &c Gri: Murray.
"P.S, We are every night within four miles of the enemie in the Waster Glen, and in the Easter Glen within two miles of them. You may consider what situation we are in. I sent off the express to Ballquhidder just as the berer went from this be four a clock in the morning."

Thursday, 6th Feb., Prince Charies arrived at Blair Castle. Feb. 9, Duke James of Atholl sent out from Perth to summon the Atholl vassals [page 386] to go to Dunkeld and Kirkmichael to join the troops which were to be sent there to disarm and apprehend "the Rebells." Prince Charles on hearing that Duke James was to be at Dunkeld on the Saturday, and that a large body of the Government troops were passing the West Boat of Dun¬keld, retired with his forces from Blair, 10th Feb., to the North. A day or two afterwards Sir Andrew Agnew advanced from Dunkeld and took possession of the Castle.

Feb. 18. The Prince reached Inverness, and on the 20th the Castle of Inverness surrendered to him, H.R.H. having been joined by Lord George Murray and the column which had marched by the East Coast. Lord Loudoun who had been holding the North for the Government retired into Ross-shire on the approach of the Jacobites, and it was in pursuit of Loudoun, that Glencarnock was sent off with the MacDonalds, Camerons, &c.

"Feb.22. Duke James having been informed that 'one Grigor Murray alias MacGrigur, tenant of Conachon, one of the rebel Captains was skulking in Glenalmond sent out a party of his tenants to search for and secure him. Feb. 23 the party returned canying with them the said Grigor who was committed to the prison of Dunkeld.

"Feb. 26, 1746. “Memoriall for Grigor Murray from Glenalmond, present Prisoner in the Tolbooth of Dunkeld.
"That I am confin'd to a house of Prison from a suspition, I understand, of being disaffected to the Government which creates no small pain in me. considering my deportment under the various occurrances and vicciseitudes of the present unhappy Rebellion. and if duely weighted I hope will in some measure account in my vindication. That before this commotion I liv'd a peaceable subject to his Majestie and a faithfull servant or Tennent to his Grace the Duke of Atholl.
"That when this Rebellion was breaking out and growing to some height Generall Cope with an Army coming to Crieff, and on his way to the North to quell the same, I was imploy'd by his Grace to raise his men of Glen Almond and join Generall Cope, which upon the first notice I did with all allacrity and expedition, and joined him at Amulree, the confines of our country, and alongs marched till we came to Tay Bridge, when we seperate and went for Blair to receive orders from Fintray our Factor, who attended us till we rejoined the main Corps twixt Trinafuar and Dalnacairdach.
"In the course of that march wee were severall nights by the way, each living [page 387] upon his own pocket, and wherein this fell short I supplyed till meeting.the main body, when I was reduced to a sixpence I applied Mr Robertson of Trinafuar to bespeak Major Cawfield for money, the Major returned for answer he could doe nothing then. I at length applied Fintry, offering my security, who refusing me, from this necessity the men withdrew and dispersed themselves. In this dispersion, and upon my returning home meeting with Commissary Bissatt I intimated to him the straits I was in and the convencies I mett with, and his advice in caise of ane overturn who very wisely advised me not to cede to the other syde, and gave what carried me home, and this advice I did not altogether reject by the sequell of my conduct, and then I lived quietly and peaceably till attacked by the Brother of the Duke and the Army that came alongs with him to our countrey, who as the Elder Brother assuming a right to us, made several insinuations and we as many refussals, at length threatened with Military Execution and Devastation, I to eschew these impendent threatenings, took up arms and witnessed the raising of the men and with reluctancy marched, and all the journey was to Crieff, about two miles from our own country, where wee gradually dispersed. Thereafter orders upon orders came to raise and ralley again, and as often as wee received them, so often did wee at tymes make a show and at other tymes wink att to perafle the tyme; and severall orders came to me to apprehend Persons of Distinction and doe other th'ward work, tho' I was not in a military commission, which I neglected to doe and look't over and all this stirr of ours happened before Hallowmas last, wee all the tyme after living quietly att home till the army's Return from England. And during their stay att Stirling the Duke of Atholl's Brother, in his way home, comeing through our countrey sett us again on foot, and in a march for Perth, where I gave it as advice every man to make way for himself, upon which wee again dispersed and ever since continue peaceably att home And when his Gr/s orders were issued to bring in all our arms on or before then 24. Feb. current, my Resolution was and can be made appear, I intended to obey that day. But was intercepted by a party on the 22.
"And this is the genuine account of the whole stepts I and the other Tennents of Glenalmond have trode in during this unhappy Rebellion. From which it will appear I acted as far as I could in behalf of the Government syde, amongst the first in Arms of the Highlanders. That what I did on the other syde was not from zeale to the cause, But rather from compulsion and meer force putts, and that it proved only a shew to avoid Devastations and other mischiefs that our country was threatened with.
"It's then hoped from a just consideration of this my conduct, I may be sett att liberty upon Baile or at least a Liberty for eight days, that I may provide my faimly necessarys & seed to the ground."
