[1] The son of the Vicar of Lismore was Ian Rewych, (Eoin riabhach)or John the Grizzled, termed Makgewykar or son of the Vicar.

[2] BBT death: 1564-12-07 Gregor son of the Dean murdered by McGestalcar, buried Inchadin

[3] 1557-58. Jan. 31. Preceptum legitimationes Gregorij McGregour et Dugall McGregour bastadorum filiorum naturalium Domini Jacobi McGregour (Sir James McGregor, Dean of Lismore) in communi forma &a apud Edinburgh ultimo Jan. - Privy Seal. “In 1557, Gregor Macgregor, son of the deceased Sir James MacGregor, Dean of Lismore, as became the head of a small, but independent sept of the MacGregors, and with a due regard to his safety, bound himself to Colin Campbell of Glenurchy and his heirs, ‘taking him for his chief in place of the Laird of MacGregor,’ and giving him his calp. “In 1557 Gregor and Dougall MacGregors, natural sons of Sir James Macgregor, receive letters of legitimation; and in 1574 Dougall MacGregor appears as Chancellor of Lismore.

[4] The Grandson of the vicar was Dougal Maol, or Dougall the Bald or Tonsured called patronymically Dougall Johnsoun, or the son of John. This Dougall Johnsoun appears in 1511 as a notary public, and dwelt at Tullichmullin, where his wife Katherine, daughter of Donald McClawe, alias Grant, died in 1512. He is twice mentioned in the ‘Obituary or Chronicle of Fortingall’; in 1526, as repairing the cross in Inchadin, or the old Church of Kenmore, situated on the north bank of the river Tay, nearly opposite Taymouth Castle; and in 1529, as placing a stone cross in Larkmonemerkyth, the name of a pass among the hills which leads from Inchadin to the south.
“We know of the two sons of Dougal the Bald, the son of John the Grizzled, James and Duncan. “James was a churchman. He appears as a notary-public, an office then held by ecclesiastics, along with his father, in the year 1511, and he early attained to honour and influence, through what channel is unknown; for in 1514, we find him as Dean of Lismore, an island in Argyleshire, lying between the districts of Lorn and Morven, which was at that time the episcopal seat of the Bishops of Argyll. He was besides Vicar of Fortingall and Firmarius or tenant of the church lands; and died possessed of those benefices in the year 1551, and was buried in the choir of the old church of Inchadin.
