After reading your message, I was quite curious, as to which three brothers you were talking about. I received a letter off one of my ancestors, explaining all about the history of the MacKinnon's and it seems that he has gone back a long way.
If you can explain to me who the 3 brothers are maybe I can help you
Thanks Karen

Clan MacKinnon

Gaelic Name:MacFhionghuin, later spelling.... MacFingon

Origin of Name: MacFhionghuin
Motto: Audentes fortuna juvat (Fortune assists the daring)
Badge: Pine
Lands:Iona and North Mull and Skye
Gaelic, MacFhionghuin (Son of the fair born)

The MacKinnons claim their descent from the royal family of King Kenneth MacAlpine. Who was also progenitor of The Royal House of Stewart, and Clan MacGregor.

The clan slogan of “Cumnich Bas Alpin” or “Remember the death of Alpin” refers to the great-grandson of Kenneth, who was slain by Bruch, King of the Picts, in 837. His son Fingon, or “fair-born” is hailed as the progenitor of the clan. His brother Grigor was the progenitor of Clan MacGregor

The full text for Clan MacKinnon is available on The Clans & Tartans of Scotland CD Rom. For more information......www.scotclans.com
