  • Notes 
    • Duncan Bane, the Third Laird, was born ca. 1559 and succeeded his father in 1599. He married, first, Elspet, daughter and co-heir of Torquil Conanach Macleod of Lewis; and, secondly, Isabel, daughter of Alexander Mackenzie, II of Fairburn. He and his family became involved in more of the exciting activities of the times and place, including:

      1. During a feud between the Mackenzies of Gairloch and the Macleods of Lewis, the grasping Mackenzie sent his son Murdoch in 1611, along with young Alexander Bane of Tulloch and others, to search for and seize a local chief in Skye; but for some unknown reason they landed at Rasay. On their arrival there, the Laird of Rasay went on board and unexpectedly found Murdoch Mackenzie in the vessel. He decided to take the latter as a prisoner, in security for his cousin whom the Laird of Gairloch was holding in captivity. However, the visitors put up a strong resistance for a considerable time, until Murdoch, Alexander Bane and the whole party except three were slain. The Laird of Rasay and most of his party also were killed, so the remaining three Mackenziemen managed to get away; but they are said to have expired on the voyage homewards.

      2. In an effort to put an end to the old quarrels between his Clan and the Colquhouns of Luss, Alexander Macgregor took a party in 1602 to the borders of Luss's territory, where he expected, by the mediation of friends, to reach an amicable adjustment. However, the effort failed and Macgregor started homewards. He was followed and only his alertness enabled him to withstand a surprise attack in which he lost a brother and another man, whilst Luss lost two hundred. The Laird of Luss promptly sent notice of the disaster to the King, misrepresenting the affair in such a way as to greatly incense the King. The Clan Macgregor's version was not yet available, so the King most unfairly proclaimed them rebels and appointed the Earl of Argyle to rout out and extirpate them, making it a crime to aid or commune with them. Argyle would enjoy this; but the highlanders greatly resented such cruel and inhuman action, especially those in Ross, and many would not be bribed. Amongst those who were fined were: William Bane, dyer in Dingwall, one pound; Alastair Bane of Logie, 1000 merks; and John MacEane vicBayne, in Caldwell, 100 merks.

      Duncan died ca. 1623, having had issue, (by his 1st marriage), Alexander, b. ca. 1590; killed in 1611, as shown above; John, b. ca. 1591; his ultimate heir and successor.; Ronald, b. ca. 1597; progenitor of the Banes of Knockbain and of Donald Bain of Dingwall and Wick (Lines T and U); Kenneth, Lauchlan, Duncan, Roderick, David, Donald, Anne, Janet, Elizabeth and Agnes.

      Alexander, b. ca. 1612, by the 2nd marriage; later, became the "First of Tarradale."

      Note - The only direct male line from this family, which is known to continue to the present time, now diverges from the line of the lairds to pass through Ronald, the third son of Duncan and the First Bane of Knockbain.
