Title: McLeas and King Charles the First
Posted by: Donald Livingstone Clink
Date: 17 February 2005

Many of the Highland families supported the Royalist cause against the Presbyterian Convenanters. By about 1644/1645 a number of the clans joined up with the Marquis of Montrose (James Graham) a former Convenanter to save King Charles and the monarchy from the wrath of both the Scottish Convenanters and English Parlimentarians led by Oliver Cromwell. In addition to smaller clans like the McLeas, Montrose recruited soldiers for his highland army from  the MacDonnells, MacDonald's, MacKinnon's, Camerons, McLaines and McLeans, McNab's, MacPhersons, Maxwell's, Olgivie's, Robertson's, Shaw's and Stewarts of Appin. Many of these highlanders participated in the battles of Inverlochy, Auldearn, Kilsyth and Philliphaugh.
