Duncan MacGregor of Ardchoille1

     Duncan MacGregor of Ardchoille was the son of Gregor Patrickson MacGregor.1 He married Mary Campbell of Ardkinglas.1 He died on 16 June 1552 at Finlairg, Scotland, was captured and beheaded by Sir Colin Campbell of Glenorchy (‘Grey Colin').2
     He was leader of all the most recalcitrant Gregarach of his time, doubtless as ‘righteous heir to The MacGregor.1' In 1532 a feud with the MacLarens perhaps arose from MacGregor claims through a MacLaren heiress as their crests are similar and in the Gregarach slew the MacLaren Minister of Balquhidder, claiming the right to share with the MacLarens (descendants of a local Abbot) teh privilege of being the first to enter Balquhidder church on Sundays.1 In 1543 the MacGregors were desperate for land and in Easter Week Duncan led a surprise night attack on peaceful homesteads which, followed by another MacGregor onslaught in 1558, nearly exterminated the Clan Laren and overran their lands in Balquhidder.1 In 1545 he was mentor of the young 8th Chief in the raid that captured Struan Robertson , and in 1548 the Menzies chief inserted a special clause in leases forbidding lands to be sub-let to ‘Duncan MacGregor MacPhadrig' (Ladasach's patronymics).1 He was Tutor of Glenstrae during the 9th Chief's minority and killed Alasdair Odhar MacGregor of Morenish for acknowledging Campbell of Glenorchy as his chief circa 1550.1 In 1551 he was outlawed for murder and became a noted freebooter, ‘Ardchoille' becoming the MacGregor slogan (war cry).1 On 16 June 1552 (an unknown value).1
