  • Notes 
    • Ban in Gaelic means "white" or the yellow white stubble side of a field that is being plowed. When the term is applied to a person in means "fair-haired" or blond. This probably became his alias because of his special appearance.
      The MacGillivarys continued to take a prominent part in public affairs including local clan disputes. A story is related about Captain William-the Captain Ban-a son of Farquhar, 6th of Drunmaglas. A local lady disappeared and was reported to have been carried away by the fairies and every effort failed to restore the lady to her husband. The captian learning of wax candles of a particular virtue in possession of a MacQueen succeeded after many attemps in obtaining the desired charm and restored the lady to her unhappy husband. The candle was preserved in the family for many generations.

      called Lachlan "liath," afterwards noticed, also a daughter,
