Research Notes

  • The internet varies in the numbering of the chief's. Wikiwand gives the famous Sir Thomas as 12th Chief. Burke's and Clan Macfarlane gives Francis as number 24. The later Wilkins varies between 25th and 26th. Either way, the numbering is out of count.Urquhart-93 20:38, 18 February 2020 (UTC)
