Notes

!SOURCE: Alick Morrison, THE MACLEODS: THE GENEALOGY OF A CLAN, Section IV, "The MacLeods of Lewis", Edinburgh, Associated Clan MacLeod Societies, 1974, p. 2. In the generally accepted MacLeod pedigree there is obviously the name of a chief or a chief's father missing. Sir George MacKenzie, who took a warm interest in the pedigree of his MacLeod forebears, for obvious reasons, and was indeed a very able person, claims that there was a chief, Malcolm, between Torquil IV and Roderick VI of Lewis. Sir George is the only authority for this. The absence of evidence in this respect could be due to the loss of important documents which Sir George had seen. On the other hand, Malcolm may have died before his father, who in turn would be succeeded by Malcolm's son, Roderick. This would explain why Malcolm's name does not appear on extant important documents as well as providing the missing generation in the hierarchy of the chiefs of Siol Thorcuil.

!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.

!SOURCE: Alick Morrison, THE MACLEODS: THE GENEALOGY OF A CLAN, Section IV, "The MacLeods of Lewis", Edinburgh, Associated Clan MacLeod Societies, 1974, p. 3. Malcolm (Calum na Buadhan or Malcolm of the Talents), ...was killed in the skirmish of Tuitimtarvach against the MacKays.

!SOURCE: Alick Morrison, THE MACLEODS: THE GENEALOGY OF A CLAN, Section IV, Second Edition, "The MacLeods of Lewis", Edinburgh, Associated Clan MacLeod Societies, 1990, p. 2. Malcolm (Gille-caluim Beag), ...was killed in 1406 at the battle of Tuiteam Tarbhach in Sutherland. [This battle was due to the "ill-treatment" of his sister "Sidheag, who married Angus MacKay of Strathnaver. "Her alleged ill-treatment as a widow cased the Macleod attack on the MacKays which resulted in the battle...."
