Title: Wikipedia: Clan McLea not a Clan?
Posted by: Grant South

Dear Gentlemen,

I believe this may provide greater clarity for us!

Sir Thomas Innes of Learney, as the then Lord Lyon wrote.

"By the term "chief," we call the representative of the family from the French word chef or head, and in the Irish 'Gaelic', with us the chief of the family is called the head of the clan.

The Ceann-cinnidh or clan chief-or more properly the "Head of the Clan"-is thus in nature precisely the same as the chief of the family. 

Both titles simply denote the living individual who represents the founder of the tribe, and who is the sacred embodiment of the tribe itself."

p155 Clans, Septs and Regiments of the Scottish Highlands. 2 Ed.

All the best!
