Clan Macfie is one of the oldest Scottish Clans with a history going back before records were kept. The ancient name for our clan is Macdubhsith. While literally meaning "dark man of peace", sithe is also the term used for supernatural beings that populated the islands and the highlands and the tern dubh or dark also had mystical and supernatural connotations. The ancestral homeland for the Macfies are the islands of Colonsay and Oronsay in the Hebrides, the Western Isles of Scotland.

In 1623, Malcolm, the last Chief of the Clan Macfie, was captured by the infamous Colla Ciotach MacDonald. He was tied to a standing stone, known as Carraig Mhic a' Phi at Balaruminmore, on our ancestral island of Colonsay, and summarily shot. The Clan Macfie was dispossessed of its lands and dispersed as a "broken" Clan.

That is, until 27th May 1981, when the Clan was reactivated and again formally recognised as an "active" Clan by the Lord Lyon. Macfies all over the world celebrate that day as a new 'birthday' for the Clan Macfie.

As there was no hereditary Chief, a Ceann-Cath or Clan Commander was appointed to head the Clan. The current Clan Commander is Alexander "Sandy" C. McPhie who resides in Queensland Australia.

The original name was
"MacDubhsith" meaning
"mac" - son of
"Dubh" - dark or black
"sith" - elf or fairy
It is Gaelic. The Scottish-Gaelic pronunciation is"Mac - Dhoogh- shee".
English it is MacDuffie.
The clan called themselves "Clan MacDuffie" until 1539 when they dropped the Gaelic "dubh" syllable. Mac-Du-ffie became MacFie.
From 1539 on they were known as Clan MacFie.Many still used/spelled their name MacDuffie however. When the Act of Union joing England and Scotland into Great Britain was passed in 1707, the English language was used more often in Scotland. There was no equivalent English sound or letter for the Gaelic sound "bh" in the clan names, so clerks and clergy used the approximations f, v, or ph. The result was many variations of the clan name but no single, correct spelling. Also, spellings were changed in Ireland during times of persecution because the Irish did not like the Scottish coming into Northern Ireland and taking their land they once owned. In addition, spellings varied because during immigration many of the immigration officers misspelled
or forced immigrants to change the spellings of their names. And in some instances, some of the immigrants didn't know how to spell their own last names.
The McAfee, McAffee, MacAfee spellings appear in Northern Ireland (County Antrim,
County Armagh).

Recognized Clan Surnames:

The following names are recognised by the Commander of Clan Macfie, Ceann-Cath A. C. (Sandy) McPhie, as being current acceptable surname spellings for members of the Clan. Variations in the spelling of these names are acceptable. Mac/Mc prefixes are considered to be interchangeable:


In addition, the Clan Commander recognises the historical links Clan Macfie had with the Macdonald Lords of the Isles, Clan Cameron in Lochaber and a branch of the MacNicol family in Glenorchy. More recently, the close links established with Clan Macfie by the Thorburn family in Sweden and the Brew family in New Zealand are also acknowledged by the Clan Commander.

A letter to Mrs. Mildred C. Bass, Forsyth, Taney County, Missouri.

Jefferson City, Jan. 3, 1849.

My Dear, I have with pleasure taken my pen in hand to inform you that I have missed the chills for several days hoping that I am now entirely clear and remain so. I was taken with the chill on Friday after I left home and had them several days though the weather was so cold, sleeting and snowing on us all the way from Hancock s here. I looked for noting else. I have not been up to Father s yet. I expect to go up on Saturday nect. Brother Eli, was here last week. Our relations are well. Father strained his ankle and has been laid up with it for several weeks. James Harris, married Sabru Jackson, shortly after he returned from the south. I have an excellent place to board. There are seven of us together, Hancock, Neveas, Hicks, Cole, Hawkins, Sanders and myself, all good moral men. (Hancock was a Senator from the 21st District; the rest of the men were representatives, Neaves from Greene County, Hicks from Ozark County, Cole from Morgan County, Hawkins from Camden County and Sanders from Chariton County). All of the members are complaining of colds and several are pretty sick. It is said that the cholera is in St. Louis and some of the members are very uneasy for fear it will get here and if it does, we will adjourn forthwith and go home. I am unable to say when the Legislature will adjourn, but I do think it will not be a long session. I am anxious to see you and the children. It would give me more pleasure to be with you and the children than all the luxury and splender here which I am surrounded. You will please write to me as it will be more pleasure to see a line from your hands than all the news I could receive from any other. You can write me and seal your leter and have it backed by some person to me. My dear, do not fail to wirte to me often, and I will do the same with you. Kiss the children for me, especially sweet little John and give all the news of the neighborhood. Do the best you can. My dear, I remain Your affectionate Husband, Theo. Bass

-------------------------------------------------------- Ozark County, Missouri, March 20th A.D. 1849.

Mrs. Bass, I inclose to you a few lines on my return home from Jefferson City which will inform you of the death of your husband. I can say to you that I was eye witness to all his sickness. We both roomed and bedded together until he got too low to be troubled. I waited on him through all his sickness which was 52 days with countinued feavour. His two brothers, George and Edward Bass, Pilee Dunkns wife and Wade Jackson was there nearly through all his sickness. He died on the 11th March the day before the Legislature broke. I got an Act past the day we adjourned appropriating two hundred dollars to pay his funeral ecpenses and to erect a tomb over his grave. I also interduced a resolution and got it pst authorizing George P. Bass to draw his pay as a member from the treasur which was $282.00. He is to settle off his bill both for Boarding and Doctor fees and account you for the remained. His beast was at his brothers and I think George Bass was to take charge of his clothing and return all to you as soon as he could conveanently. If you wish any further information you will please write to me. Your Friend and well wisher in hast, Robert Hicks

Tolleiv og Ågot gifte seg i 1847. Tolleiv fekk skøyte på garden i 1853, og så dreiv han hestehandel ved sida. Men etterkvart fann han å vilja prøve lykka i Amerika. Han gjekk til far sin, som då var kårmann, og spurde om han kunne selja garden kårfritt. Og far hans gjekk med på det.
Så reiste dei til Amerika i 1861. Han deltok i borgarkrigen. Dei var i Emmet i Iowa ei tid, så flytta dei. "Sheriff Megaarden" er nemnt hjå Ulvestad bind 1 s 309.
Tolleiv hadde fleire uhell, både stall og avling brann opp. Sjølv omkom han 1870 etter å ha fått eit plankelass over seg.
