This book traces the social history of members of the Clan Labhran (the MacLarens and the MacLaurins) who had its origins in Balqhuidder and surrounding districts of western Perthshire. It concentrates on a 200-year period in the history of the clan from around 1680 to around 1880, a time of great social and political change in Scotland when there were three Jacobite uprisings. Following the defeat of the Jacobites at the battle of Culloden in 1746, a gradual disintegration of the traditional way of life in the Highlands took place. A major consequence of these changes was widespread emigration of clansmen and women, firstly to North America, and later to Australia and New Zealand. Of those who stayed behind many moved from their traditional homelands and went to work in textile mills and other industries that began to open up in Scotland after 1780. This book covers 190 descriptions of Scottish parishes where MacLarens at one time resided. Over 2,400 clansmen and women are listed. In addition, there are brief biographies of 160 clansmen and clanswomen and 65 family lines are detailed. The biographies range across all walks of life. It is hoped that if you have MacLaren or MacLaurin roots you will be able to find some reference to these in this book. As well as being of interest to genealogists, Creag an Tuirc is an essential reference for social historians wishing to discover the history behind some of the famous MacLarens and MacLaurins who have left their marks on our society.
