PREFACE

THIS WORK has extended to such a length that it would be impossible to include the Aberdeenshire Frasers in one volume, even if it were considered desirable to give here an account of that family. There is, however, no need for this, Lord Saltoun having, only a few years ago, published three handsome volumes giving the history and genealogies of his own family -- the Frasers of Philorth and their branches. But there never has been any full account of the Frasers of Lovat and the several families descended from that stock.

The Historical Account of the Family of Fraser by the late John Anderson, published in 1825, although written for a special purpose and in the interest of the Lovat family, contains much valuable information, and it has to some extent been taken advantage of in the preparation of this work. It does not, however, deal with any of the branches beyond the briefest reference, and is not a genealogical work at all except as regards the main line of the family. And even in that it cannot always be implicitly relied upon.

This work is not only historical and genealogical but is chronogically arranged from beginning to end, the minor families being dealt with in the order in which they branched off from the main stem, except those of illegitimate origin, which come in later. Then follow the Frasers of Dunballoch and Phopachy, two families who were always closely (p. viii) allied to the House of Lovat although not descended from it.

Perhaps the leading feature of the book, apart from the genealogies of the various branch families, is the long account given in it of Lord Simon of the 'Forty-five, which occupies about one-third of the whole, and is believed to be far the most detailed and accurate record of his extraordinary life which has yet appeared, thanks not a little to his own letters, printed by Sir William Fraser, K.C.B., Edinburgh, for the first time in his Chiefs of Grant, and to other sources of information previously not available, all duly acknowledged in the proper place in the body of the work.

I am indebted to Mr Charles Fraser-Mackintosh of Drummond more than I can tell. He has placed freely at my disposal his rich treasures of Fraser MSS. bound volumes, family correspondence, papers, and documents of every description. I also draw largely on his articles on the Fraser's of Guisachan and Foyers, published in the Transactions of the Gaelic Society of Inverness.

Many other kind friends, to whom I must tender my acknowledgments without mentioning their several names, have also assisted by the use of valuable family papers and genealogical information. Indeed, except in the case f two or three individuals, I have received every aid and encouragement from the ladies and gentlemen of or connected with the Clan that I could expect or desire in the preparation and completion of the work.

I have again to thank my son, Mr Hector Rose Mackenzie, solicitor, Inverness, for the full and carefully prepared Index which appropriately completes the volume.
