  • Name Angus Ban MACMILLAN  [1
    • Of old Glenpean branch.
    Gender Male 
    Biography Notes "Angus Ban succeeded his father as tenant of Glenpean but in 1663, he gave up Glenpean and became ground officer to Lochiel in the Strontian area."
    Comment by Don Gordon in Nov 2020: Glenpean is of course one of the many properties of the estate of the 17th Cameron Chief (Lochiel) but is is not known what connection Lochiel had with Strontian which is in Sunart - well south of Glenpean.  [2
    Biography Notes * Somerled had an Angus Ban MacMillan moving from Glendessary (near Glen Pean) to Camaghael (near Fort William) in 1804, and having a son Ewen, who went to Canada in 1827. But that was not 'our' Angus Ban who left Glen Pean (to Strontian) much earlier, in 1663, and his great-grandson, Ewen, was born in 1736 in Strone Nevis (near Glen Nevis) and was in Canada (with the 78th Battalion) about 70 years before the other Ewen. Also Somerled listed the ancestry of the other Angus Ban with a different line going back seven generations in Glendessary from his father, Ewen Ban (p88 & 93).  [3
    Biography Notes OLD GLENPEAN BRANCH OF MACMILLANS:
    Page 72 of Bygone Lockaber' by Somerled MacMillan - "The old Glenpean branch: The progenitor of the old Glenpean branch was John, second son of William MacMillan, 4th of Murlaggan. He had, at least, one son ? Angus, who succeeded him as possessor of Glenpean, and was tenant there sometime before 1642. The latter had a son Angus who succeeded his father as tenant in Glenpean by 1642, and in the rental for that date he is given as 'Angus vic Ian vic William vic Conchie Van (Angus, of a son of John, son of William, son of Duncan Ban) for the 3 penny lands of Glenpean'. Maolmuire (Myles), another brother, became progenitor of the Callich branch. Angus was succeeded by his son Angus Ban, who, in 1663, gave up Glenpean and became ground officer to Lochiel in the Strontian area. The latter had a son Ewen, who is mentioned along with two sons of Ewen Og, 7th of Murlaggan, in the rental of Murlaggan farm for 1717, and he is given as 'Ewen Mac Angus Van'. We have good reason to believe that he went to live in Glen Nevis where his son Angus became personal servant to Alexander MacSorlie-Cameron, 12th Glen Nevis."

    To put this another way, the ancestoral line of 8 generations was:-
    * Duncan Ban (Conchie Van)
    * William: 4th of Murlaggan
    * John (Ian): He was the second son of William, was the possessor of Glenpean and the progenitor of the old Glenpean branch.
    * Angus: He succeeded his father as possessor of Glenpean, and was tenant there sometime before 1642.
    * Angus: He succeeded his father as tenant in Glenpean by 1642, and in the rental for that date he is given as 'Angus vic Ian vic William vic Conchie Van (Angus, of a son of John, son of William, son of Duncan Ban) for the 3 penny lands of Glenpean'
    * Angus Ban: He succeeded his father as tenant of Glenpean but in 1663, he gave up Glenpean and became ground officer to Lochiel in the Strontian area.
    * Ewen: He is mentioned along with two sons of Ewen Og, 7th of Murlaggan, in the rental of Murlaggan farm for 1717, and he is given as 'Ewen Mac Angus Van'. Sommerled had 'good reason' to believe that Ewen went to live in Glen Nevis.
    * Angus: He became the personal servant to Alexander MacSorlie-Cameron, 12th Glen Nevis.
