Hi,
I've found several references to Finley as being a Sept of the Confederation of Clan Chattan. In his Clan Finley pub.1956 Dover Ohio. Herald Stout states that Finley is actually Ferguson. I haven't been able to find a satisfactory answer to which is correct. However I have along the line found at least one rebuttal of the idea that Finley is a part of Clan Ferguson. I appearntly have the genealogy traced back to about the time of MacBeth by Herald Stout much of which is confirmed by Ludlow's Colonial Families. So I should be able to match up a male ancestor somewhere. I am not quite sure about this but my impression is that Finley itself may not be a Clan per se. Does anybody have any good information on whether or not Finley is part of Clan Chattan, and can anyone tell me what a Sept is?
