Notes

!MENTION: Rev. Dr. Donald MacKinnon and Alick Morrison, THE MACLEODS -- THE GENEALOGY OF A CLAN, Section III, "MacLeod Cadet Families", Edinburgh, The Clan MacLeod Society, 1970, pp. 12, 13. Alexander succeeded his father in the tack of Ferinlea. He signed the Address of Loyalty to Norman 22nd Cheif on 8th January 1746 and also the letter to the Auditors in 1775, where in company with others, he agreed to a voluntary agreement to pay a 7 1/2 % increase in his rent on 16th September 1777. He married Margaret, daughter of Donald MacLeod of Berneray and Anne, only daughter of Roderick MacLeod 19th Chief of the Clan MacLeod of Harris and Dunvegan. Dr. Johnson and James Boswell paid a visit to Ferinlea. Boswell wrote, "We found in Ferinlea a very comfortable house. His wife is a daughter of Bernera . . . . Ferinlea seemed to be a worthy sensible kind lman." It does not appear that Alexander and his wife had issue. He died on the 17th March 1797, aged 87 years.
