Notes for Seach MacDuff:
Seach (Gaelic for Shaw) Macduff, having accompanied his father and the Prince in their tour of Scotland, became a great
favorite of King Malcolm IV. In 1154 he is said to have had command of the army of Malcolm. For his assistance in quelling an
insurrection amoung the inhabitants of Moray in 1161, the King made him Govenor of Inverness, and presented him with the lands
of Petty and Breachly, and the Forest of Strathearn.
From the high position of his father, he was styled, by the Gaelic speaking population, Mac-an-Toi-sich (son of the chief or
foremost), which became the surname of the family. Dr. John MacPherson observes that "as Malcolm Cean Mor gave a right to
those powerful Thanes to lead the van, the name is, in a manner, accounted for." He was the founder and first Chief of Clan
MacIntosh. He married Giles, daughter of Hugh de Montgomery, one of his comrades in the Moravian insurrection in 1161, and
had three sons, Shaw, Malcolm, and Duncan. He died in 1179, and was succeeded by his eldest son, Shaw (Oig) MacIntosh.
