  • Notes 
    • MacGregor indicates that Alexander died unmarried without children. Nowhere is Alexander recorded as "2nd of Balimeanach" however his date of death post-dates his father and thus he must have been next in line ahead of his brother Robert to inherit Balimeanach. As he had no children then Balimeanach must have passed laterally to Robert after Alexander's death. Unless, for some reason unknown to us, Alexander was passed over in the inheritance in favour of his younger brother. It would seem more likely that Alexander is simply not recorded as being of Balimeanach rather than that he was passed over. Thus we show him as "2nd of Balimeanach."
