Robert Macfie
Agnes Fairrie
(1812-1899)
(1802-1900)
 
 

Robert was born in Greenock, Scotland,  second son of William and his first wife Jessie (Johnston).  In typical Scottish fashion he was named Robert after his father's father   Robert of Langhouse, Inverkip, his older brother William having been named after his father.  Robert was born in to a well to do family of sugar refiners, who had successful sugar boiling operations in Greenock, and Leith  producing for not only the local markets, but those in foreign lands , Russia, Sweden and Canada. The family operated a grocery business in Greenock and had investments in several other industrial undertaking such a coal, railways and sailing vessels.

Robert Macfie, was the first Macfie to seek a family Coat of Arms, and did on the twenteth day of November 1863, becoming recognized as Robert Macfie of Langhouse, Renfrewshire , Airds ,Oban and Glenshelleck , Argyllshire on the eighteenth day of November 1864.

It is through his application to the Lord Lyons of  Scotland, that we find the many  bearers of Arms of the Clan Macfie in possession of their own family Coat of Arms, all bearing similarities to Robert's original personal arms.

 While his grandfather Robert Macfie, was the first to have taken possession of the superiority of Langhouse, and William his father, was the one who castleized the original building , both gentlemen may have been know as Macfie of Langhouse ,but this was not the official nor registered designation that is recognized today as being the origins of the symbols used by Clan Macfie. Only in 1864 did the symbols of the Macfie become recognized as official  and this was a direct result of young Robert's desire to portray himself as part of the establishment of that time.

In 1867, following Robert Macfie of Langhouse, Airds , Oban and Glenshellack's notoriety,  his cousin Robert Andrew Macfie, who had by then purchased the estate of Dreghorn, just out side of Leith, and who had become involved in politics, decided that he also should be possessed of a personal Coat of Arms. The arms of Macfie of Dreghorn, were then granted by the Court of the Lord Lyons of Scotland, based on the first recorded  Macfie arms in Scotland ( those of Robert Macfie of Langhouse - 1864)
.

The original Macfie of Langhouse  Arms , now belong to Robert James Macfie of Luton Park, England. he being a direct male descendant of Robert Macfie. The orignial Macfie of Dreghorn Arms  being now exthinguished, as there are no longer any male members of that family living, and not any of the male family members attempted to transfer his arms to any of thier daughters.
