!CAVEAT: The absence of any primary evidence beyond the word of Sir George MacKenzie makes this person's existence suspect, if not doubtful. The birth of Roderick, who does appear in early primary documents, is well within the possible lifetime of Torquil, IV of Lewis. In deference to Sir George MacKenzie and Alick Morrison, this generation is included here, with this disclaimer.
!REVISION: As seen from the following references, Major Loudoun MacLeod has revised this genealogy. Morrison had this Malcolm as a separate individual as a son of ______ (RIN ___), and Fifth Chief of the MacLeods of Lewis; this has been revised -- his is no longer a chief, and is now the son of Torquil, IV of Lewis. This provided a real, historical person for the "missing generation" mentioned above.
