The name MacLean is rendered in gaelic “MacGille Eoin” or “son of the servant of St. John”. The clan claims its descent from “Gilleathan Na Tuaidh”, of the royal house of Lorn. The Duart branch of the clan claim as their progenitor Lachlan Lubanach, son of Iain Dhu MacLean of Mull, and a direct descendent of Gillean. The MacLeans of Duart married into the family of the 1st Lord of the Isles in order to gain power and prestige, but not all of their political unions were to benefit the clan – in particular the case of Lachlan MacLean who married the daughter of the Earl of Argyll in the sixteenth century. The match was not a happy one and Lachlan took drastic action by stranding his wife on a rock and leaving her to drown. She was rescued and her kinsmen later avenged her by stabbing her husband.
