The MacMillan's are an ancient Clan, tracing their origins back for over a thousand years to the royal house of the Celtic prince, St Columba. This great man established his church on the Isle of Iona during the sixth century, establishing Christianity in Gaelic Scotland. The order of the Columban church allowed priests to marry, and so the MacMillan's descend from the clergymen of Iona. The Clan MacMillan progenitor was Gille Chriosd, or disciple of Christ, who was a son of Cormac, the Bishop of Dunkeld. The name MacMillan comes from the Gaelic "Mac Mhaoilean" meaning "son of the tonsured one", a reference to the Celtic priestly practice of shaving the front of the head, rather than following the Roman tradition of baring a ring around the crown. The Clan moved to the banks of Loch Arkaig in Inverness-shire during the reign of David I in the 12th Century. From there the Clan MacMillan settled in Lawers in Perthshire, Knapdale in Argyllshire, and Galloway. In Knapdale there remains two enduring monumets to the Clan MacMillan.

An early branch of the Clan MacMillan was to be found at Loch Arkaig in Lochaber. However, tradition states that the family moved from this area on the orders of King Malcolm IV of Scotland and moved to the crown lands of Loch Tay in Perthshire. It was at these lands that Robert the Bruce was sheltered by the Clan MacMillan chief after he stabbed John Comyn the "red Comyn", chief of Clan Comyn. The Clan MacMillan again proved its loyalty to Bruce by fighting for him against the English at the Battle of Bannockburn in 1314 during the Wars of Scottish Independence.

Chief Malcolm Mor Macmillan received the lands of Knapdale from the Lord of the Isles in 1360. The charter is said to have been inscribed on a rock on the beach at the Point of Knap. It was reputed to have said:
"Coir MhicMhaolain air a Chnap
Fhad's a bhuaileas tonn ri crag"

Which is translated from Scots Gaelic (gaidhlig) as:
"MacMillan's right to Knap
As long as this rock withstands the sea"

As vassals of the Lord of the Isles, the Macmillan's were caught up in the aftermath of the forfeiture of the Lordship and lost control of Knap forever. They did however manage to keep the adjoining lands of Tireleacham. Even so they were still harassed by the Campbells who had supplanted them. The Clan MacKintosh and Clan Cameron had long been at feud. The MacMillan's supported the Clan Cameron and it is said that there were MacMillan's among the 30 warriors representing the Clan Cameron who fought against 30 warriors from the Clan Mackintosh at a set battle known as the Battle of The North Inch in 1396. It is said that four MacKintoshes survived the battle but were all mortally wounded and one of Cameron's survived by swimming across a river to escape.

The MacMillan name can be traced before 1000 A.D.

Notes for WALTER HAROLD SYLVESTER LANCASTER: "Click here to view Lancaster website"

Per Caroline Dexter-Lancaster, Walter Lancaster's second daughter, wrote in a note at the age of 87 remembering her father's death bed confession when she was a teenager to her mother Laura. The note was written in 1984:

 "First about my father, I was a young teenager when he passed away, he died fairly young was 56 or 57 if he were alive today he would be well over 100 years old. He was over 40 when I was born and I'm now 87, so figure it out. My father was born to the Gentry. An old English Family he said one time that they could trace their ancestry back to the "Oliver Cromwell Days" in British History. That is a very long time ago. I should know, but I have forgotten. As a young man he attended "Harrow College," a preparatory school for either "Cambridge" or "Oxford." While there my father met a local girl, had an affair, and he did the honorable thing and married her. Of course in those days, the class system was everything when the family found it out his father came down there and he was disinherited. We knew he had been expelled from the family, but didn't know why. But on his death bed he told Mamma the reason. Anyway, his father said "this day I take legal proceedings you are no longer our son." Getting married in those days out of your own class was almost as bad as having committed crime. He was an only son. I guess it about killed his parents. They both died young. He left college of course and lived there until the birth of the baby, but both the Mother and child died during childbirth and then he went out into the world, but he always kept in touch with his Mother through college friends until she passed away, in fact through his Mother, he went to India and worked for the British Government. For a while his Mother had connections there, that is before India won it's independence from England. It isn't clear whether his father knew this or not, I think he died before the Mother. Anyway, he always loved the sea. He left India as he said he couldn't take the climate. While there, he studied navigation and became a first-mate and that seem to be what he did for a long time. How he came to Nova Scotia and met Mamma is unclear. He met her and didn't stay, but he always wrote to her wherever he was and 10 years later he returned and they were married. His name was WALTER, he must have been born in the 1850's because Mamma was born in 1863 and he was 8 or 9 years older than she. His fathers name was HAROLD and his Mother's name was ARABELLA. Aba (Arabella, Caroline's older sister), was named after her. Some one told me they read in a London paper a lady named ARABELLA LANCASTER had tea with the Queen. My father was a brilliant man. He was a musician and linguist and been all over the world and knew so much. Sorry I can't give you dates on anything, it's been so long ago, I will try to tell you what I know of Mamma's background. She was pure Scotch and all of her people before her. When they left Scotland they came to this country (USA) and settled in one the Carolina's, north I think, but when this country became independent of England they and many more because (United Empire Loyalists) that meant they were true to the Crown and fled to the Maritime Provinces of Canada. That was a long time ago, whenever it was I've forgotten when the revolutionary war was, I've forgotten the year, you know that better than I do. Dates allude me today." 

End of note...

It was felt that this letter was a family treasure and should be posted in it's entirety for Walter's heirs to view. I thank my sister for coming forth with this note that she obtained from Caroline Dexter-Lancaster.
