Title: Ho'ro na Levach, Levack, Levich!
Posted by: Grant South
Date: 13 November 2005

Hi Andrew,

Yes...., but in this case if once recorded as Levich, as mentioned- then it's the same as Levach/Levack which is establish within the clan traditions through knowledge of heritable connection, as quoted re, 'Innes of Learney', etc. p345, '4. Levack.-The Levacks are offshoots of the Livingstones.'

Further the various branches of our ancient clan sencliathe will not record the same Y-DNA as the stem, accordingly this evidence of difference will not exclude clan descent, but rather confirm cultural and regional history. A Y-DNA match will confirm that the Levacks are offshoots of the stem. If no match is establish to the stem, then the Levacks are offshoots of the body of the clan.

The sencliathe are of three origins.

1. Ancient occupiers of the soil.In our case being the Cruithne-Picts, which is of great interest indeed. 

2. Ancient adherents of the incoming Chief, for us the various adherents of the Irish Cruithne, the Dal Araide and Dal Fiatach. Further the retinue of a lady wife to one of our Chiefs, the various neighbour clans.

3. The so called 'broken men', who sort inclusion within the clan. As the co-arbs, represent a sacral lineage, being heads of a religious community and were associated themselves with religious ceremony, it is very possible that adherents were drawn from the followers of the early Celtic church of the St Molaug sect, whom may well have been from various origins. This may again include those folk from the various clans who revered St Molaug as their tutelary saint.

We already have examples of the sencliathe in the DNA project, who hold the clan name or variants thereof and record similar Y-DNA to our neighbouring clans.

Slainte!
Grant.
