INTRODUCTION

A few years after first publishing his books, Dr MacPhee decided to revise and reorganise the first three volumes into two new volumes, i.e. Vols. I, II, & III became Vols. VI & VII. As this may cause some confusion around the sequence of Dr. MacPhee's books, it was decided to renumber the electronic editions of his books to reflect the original sequence.

The new volumes 1 & 2 deal with the origin, history, lives and lands of the Clan in Scotland & Ireland. The volumes 3 & 4 deal with the migration of the Scots and Scots-Irish to the New World countries, and the pioneer members of the clan in these countries. Volume 5 deals with the clan pioneers of Prince Edward Island, Canada from 1767 to 1881.
