The Highland clearances by John Prebble( Book )

60 editions published between 1881 and 2009 in English and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the nineteenth century many of the inhabitants of the Highland glens were cleared out, often by forcible eviction to make way for a more profitable tenant -- the Great Cheviot sheep. Families had to leave the homes where they had lived for generations. Thousands emigrated over the ocean in the hope of a better life...The effects of it are still being felt in Scotland -- and in the countries where the unwilling migrants settled. Written while the effects it describes were still unfolding, Mackenzie's impassioned History brings the distress of the age unforgettably before the reader" -- Back cover

Family tradition states that the Munros were of ancient Scots and were banished from Scotland by the Romans. They fled to Ireland and the western isles and then returned several centuries later. Tradition also credits O'Cathan, an ancient Irish chief and Prince of Fermanagh, as the founder of the Munros of Fowlis. A descendant of O'Cathan, Hugh Munro (d.1126) was made the first Baron of Fowlis, which title has remained in the family ever since. Descendants live throughout Great Britain, United States and Canada

History of the Mathesons : with genealogies of the various families by Alexander Mackenzie( Book )

14 editions published between 1882 and 2005 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Mathesons in the fourteenth century rivalled their neighbors the Mackenzies, but the aggression of the MacDonalds in the fifteenth century broke their power and reduced them to a more limited or minor status. Here, MacBain first deals with the origins and traditions of the chiefly branch of Bennetsfield and the chiefship. He then turns to the Mathesons of Lochalsh and Attadale, including not only the Scottish but also the Canadian branches. He then considers the families of Matheson of Iomaire, of Glas-na-muclach, of Sutherland, and of Shiness, Achany, and the Lews. There are extensive appendices dealing with controversial issues related to the Mathesons, their history, and their geneology. Finally, there is an account of the Matheson tartan and the armorial bearings of the family. Mackenzie's first edition is presented as well because it contains material which was not included in the larger, second edition
