Background: The word 'toisech', meaning 'leader' can also be translated as 'chief' or 'captain'. According to the MacKintosh seanachies, the first chief was Shaw, second son of Duncan Macduff, Earl of Fife of the royal house of Dalriada. Shaw Macduff accompanied Malcolm IV on an expedition in 1160 to suppress rebellion in Morayshire. He was made constable of Inverness Castle around 1163, and granted land in the Findhorn valley. The lands of Petty were to become the heartland of the clan and the burial place of the chief, succeeded him in 1179, and was confirmed in his patrimony by William the Lion. Ferquhar, the fifth chief, led his clan against the army of King Haakon of Norway at the Battle of Largs in 1263. He was killed in a dual in 1265, leaving his infant son, Angus, as heir. Angus was brought up at the court of his Uncle, Alexander of Islay, the Lord of the Isles. A splendid match was arranged for him in 1291, when he married Eva, the only daughter of Dougal Dal, chief of Clan Chattan in Lochaber. Eva brought her the lands of Glenloy and Loch Arkaig. Angus and Eva lived on Clan Chattan lands at Torcastle, later withdrawing from Lochaber taking up residence at Rothiemurchus. Thereafter the Clan Chattan, which developed into a confederation of what were later to become independent clans, was led by the MacKintosh chiefs, although their right to do so was unsuccessfully challenged by the Macphersons over the centuries. MacKintosh and Clan Chattan history is thus inextricably entwined.
