Commons of Argyll by Duncan C. MacTavish, compiled about 1933-35, published 1935, in Lochgilphead, Knapdale.

Lists of names are broken down by Region, then sub-division, followed by name(s) of person(s).

These names were taken for surviving lists, by Duncan. C. MacTavish, a native of Lochgilphead, and are exclusive for Argyllshire, and do not represent other shires. Not all regions in Argyllshire are represented (i.e. Morvern, Ardnamurchan, etc.), and hence not all persons who participated in the rebellion are mentioned.

Following are the Rebels in Argyll and Tarbert (relative to MacTavish), pertaining to the Earl of Argyll’s part in the Monmouth Rebellion. Many refused to turn out, and are thus not listed. These lists contain MacTavish and Stevenson/Stephenson name variations. Following the Rebels of 1685 are Fencible Men (eligible for war) enumerated in 1692.

These are all Highlanders. Lowlanders are named is separate lists in Commons of Argyll. These lists also show that members of a clan did not all live on the lands of their chief, and that others not of the clan did.
