Title: What exactly is Highland Clan McLea?

Hi all, 

We do seem sometimes to have different views as to what constitutes Highland Clan McLea. I have mine and you could well have a different perspective. That being the case I thought this note from the Young Bachuil dated May 31,2004 may be helpfull to resolve any possible confusion. 

"The Lord Lyon King of Arms Officially Recognises the Livingstones of Bachuil, Barons of the Bachuil, as head of the Highland Clan McLea. Therefore Bachuil is de facto and de jure chief/head of all Highland McLeas, MacLeas and Maclays and other variants of the spelling. All McLeas therefore have as their Chief Alistair Livingstone of Bachuil. It should be understood that the McLeas are not under any Livingstones as such. It is just that the Chiefly family have anglicised their Gaelic name M'onlea to Livingstone. The Livingstones of Bachuil and all other highland Livingstones are McLeas."

And he then goes on to say that "The McLeas have no direct connection with the lowland Livingstons" 

This is the basis for my own understanding of the clan and I hope it offers some clarity for others. 

regards
