BOOKS FOR FURTHER READING

One needs to remember that when reading "the old works" things are not always as they are written, in fact some of it is just wrong.

Most of these books below are online at Google Books, where you can read them online or download as a PDF, or elsewhere as E-Books.

The History of Ireland

Cenél Conaill and The Donegal Kingdom (AD 500-800) (Not online and its expensive, try your library, its an amazing read.)

Lives of the Irish Saints

The Life of St. Columba by Adomnan (Dr. Reeves edition)

History of the Norse in Ireland

A history of Scotland from the Roman Occupation‎ (Vols I, II, III, IV)

A Scots Earl in Covenanting Times

An Inventory of the Lamont Papers

An account of the depredations committed on Clan Campbell and its followers

History of the Norse in Ireland

The Pictish Nation: Its people and Its Church

Memorials of Argyleshire

Origines Parochiales Scotiae

Fasti Ecclesiĉ Scoticanĉ


I will post other books, from time to time, but most of these will require purchasing.

The Letters of Letitia Hargrave (MacTavish) by Maragret A. MacLeod
Online Link http://link.library.utoronto.ca/champlain/item_record.cfm?lang=eng&searchtype=Bibrecord&startrow=1&Limit=All&query=9_96835&Idno=9_96835

This is a most fascinating read. From the Chaplain Society.
Letitia MacTavish Hargrave was the daughter of Chief Dugald MacTavish of Dunardry, Sheriff at Campbeltown, Kintyre, and sister to William MacTavish, Hudson Bay Company Governor of Assiniboia and Rupert's Land. She married James Hargrave of the Hudson Bay Company, who was clerk to her brother, William, and moved to Canada. She was one of few white women in the region at that time.

Other interesting books: Any of the other fifty or so publications online of Chaplain Society dealing with the Fur Trade found at

It will take a while to get thru all these.....

For Purchase (Scottish Hazard Vol One and Two can be expensive -- look around from time to time on the Internet for pricing), unless you can find them in your library.

Scottish Hazard: (Volume one) The Flemish Nobility and their impact on Scotland, By Ms. Beryl Platts.

Scottish Hazard: Volume Two: The Flemish Heritage, by Ms. Beryl Platts

Rob Roy MacGregor, His life and Times, by W. H. Murray
