Title: Wikipedia: Clan McLea not a Clan?
Posted by: Rob Livingston
Date: 25 January 2006

Niall will of course be able to answer these questions with greater detail, but it will be noted that the banner that was issued by Lord Lyon to Alastair Livingstone is the banner of a chief of a clan.  Only chiefs are issued pinsels (the triangular flag with a badge, mottos and clan plant), and only chiefs are are allowed a badge with a gold buckle.  Alastair has been granted both of these.

It is unclear to me why Lord Lyon designates our cheif as head of "Highland" Clan MacLea.  It implies that there was a "Lowland" Clan MacLea - possibly alluding to an unproven relationship between the Livingstons of Livingston and the MacLeas Argyll and Ross-shire, which at this point seems unlikely given that we are not finding any DNA evidence of such a relationship.
