The royal descent of this ancient clan can be traced to remote antiquity, Gregor Garubh, or "The Stout," having fought under King Duncan I. In the early part of the i7th century there were feuds between numerous clans, the Mac Gregors being persecuted with such fury that any person might mutilate or slay them with impunity. In this situation they continued till they were courted to join the Solemn League and Covenant, upon promises of future friendship ; but they declared, "That as they bore tJie crown on ttie faint of their swords, they would not fail to use the latter in support of the former." They are the only instance of a race being forbidden to bear their family name, which was first proscribed by James VI., owing to treachery and misrepresentation. They were restored by Charles II., 1661, to their estates, and permitted to bear their own name. In the reign of William and Mary the law of proscription was again revived, and continued in force until its repeal in 1774. The name was not, however, restored till a royal license to resume it was obtained by Sir John. Murray (properly Mac Gregor), 1822. MACGREGOR, Creation 1828, of Saville Row, Middlesex.
