Notes


The Clan MacFie (MacPhee, MacDuffie)


With this clan the story of the Siol Alpin closes with a sad note. The clan lands of the MacFies consisted of the island of Colonsay, and they were hereditary Keepers of the Records to the Lords of the Isles. Like most of the Hebridean clans, the MacFies followed the Lords of the Isles.


The chiefs, following a normal Highland custom, styled themselves Captain of MacFie, as well as MacFie of Colonsay.


They are believed to descend from the MacKinnons, and one of their clan was Lector of Iona in 1164, during the time of the hereditary abbacy of the "sacred" clan MacKinnon. This strongly suggests that there was a family relationship since the MacKinnon abbots were not likely to bestow such offices outside their own number.


Following the fall of the Lords of the Isles, the MacFies of Colonsay continued to follow the MacDonalds of Islay. In the year 1463 DONALD MACDUFFIE (another name for the same clan) witnessed a charter at Dingwall, and in 1531 MURDOCH MACFIE of Colonsay was accused of treason because of his continued support of the MacDonald pretender to the forfeited Lordship.


The clan's continued alliance with the MacDonalds eventually caused their downfall. They supported Sir James MacDonald of Islay after his escape from Edinburgh Castle in 1615, and the Campbells had been promised the island of Islay as a reward for getting rid of Sir James and his troublesome followers. Somehow the Campbells forced Coll Mac Gillespick MacDonald, who later won fame with Montrose under his nickname "Colkitto," to take their side, and it was this Colkitto, a MacDonald chief, who captured Malcolm MacFie of Colonsay and his followers and handed them over to the Campbells. In 1623 Colkitto finally slew the MacFie chief and annexed Colonsay for himself!


The clan MacFie became a broken clan (a clan without land and therefore without shelter) and without a chief. The clansmen dispersed and the name is now to be found all over the Highlands.


Again, a clan of the Siol Alpin produced a man instrumental in the growth of modern-day Israel! GEORGE MCDUFFIE, an American statesman of South Carolina, was born in 1788, the son of John and Jane McDuffie—unspoiled Scots of great energy and intelligence who had migrated to Georgia after the Revolution.


In 1804 he was employed as a clerk by Calhoun and Wilson of Augusta; and in 1810 William Calhoun, brother of James and John C. Calhoun, took him under his wing and sent him to Willington Academy. George McDuffie more than fulfilled the expectations of his patron, graduating from South Carolina college in 1813. He was called to the bar in 1814, and in 1818 secured election to the State Legislature, and to Congress in 1821.


McDuffie won distinction in the national House of Representatives, serving continuously on important committees until 1834. While he was strongly influenced by the Calhouns, McDuffie forged a vigorous, intellectual independence that made him stand out in the political sphere.


In 1834 he denounced the Jackson administration, retired from Congress, and served as governor of South Carolina from 1834 to 1836. He was a highly effective governor, giving particular attention to the compilation of the statue laws of the State and to the reorganization of South Carolina college.


George McDuffie was elected to the U.S. Senate in December 1842, where he helped to bring about the ANNEXATION OF TEXAS, the "AMICABLE ADJUSTMENT" OF THE OREGON QUESTION WITH GREAT BRITAIN and the passage of the low Walker tariff of 1846—displacing the high Whig tariff of 1842 almost in conjunction with the repeal of the British corn laws. During this period of intimate relations between the free traders of the U.S. and Great Britain, McDuffie's bust, along with that of Calhoun's, was sent to the Free Trade Hall in Manchester, England.


McDuffie's public life ended with this note because of an old spine wound he received during a duel in 1822. He was compelled to resign his seat in the Senate on August 17, 1846 and died five years later at Cherry Hill, South Carolina.


The last official outlaw in Scotland is said to have been a MacFie—a sad ending for an ancient clan belonging to the family of the first kings of Scotland, and descended from the early kings of Dalriada and their ancestors the Milesian Scots of Ireland.


"Dr. Thomas Cooper, a disciple of Adam Smith and President of the College of South Carolina, suggested that the time had come for the marriage between the states was somewhat less than a transcendent relationship received a great deal of criticism from the patriots of the North, but Cooper’s logic was based on this inflammatory, but not entirely inaccurate, appraisal:


There is not a petty manufacturer in the Union, from the owner of a spinning factory, to the maker of a hobnail, ...from the mountains of Vermont to the swamps of Patapsco, who is not pressing forward to the plunder; and who may not be expected to worry Congress with petitions, memorials and querulous statements for permission to put his hands into the planter's pocket. The avowed object now is, by means of a drilled and managed majority in Congress, permanently to force upon us a system, whose effect will be to sacrifice the South to the North, by converting us into colonies and tributaries ...to tax us for their own emolument ...to claim the right of disposing of our honest earnings...to forbid us to buy from our most valuable customers ...to irritate into retaliation our foreign purchasers, and thus confine our raw material to the home market ...in short, to impoverish the planter and to stretch the purse of the manufacturer [Bancroft, 1928:32].


Southern memorials to Congress complained bitterly of the unequal effects of the tariff and the failure of the program of internal improvements to benefit the South. Senator George MacDuffie argued that, of every 100 bales of cotton produced in the South, 40 of them were stolen by the North. This was an exaggeration, but Van Deusen's (1928) study shows that the costs to the South were by no means insignificant." http://www.irows.ucr.edu/cd/papers/ustariffpol.htm
