In 1517 Lachlan Maclean of Duart petitioned on behalf of this Lachlan (Lachlan McEwin, 3rd Baron of Ardgour) for him to receive a remission for taking past in Donald of Lochalsh's expedition (RSS i, 2878; ADCP 80,80)[Note 8, page 195].
According to A Maclean Sinclair in 'Clan Gillean' a charter dated March 1549 showed that as a result of Lachlan McEwin's activities the estate reverted to the crown and the government gave "the lands and barony of Ardgour" to Hector Mor of Duart as Chief of Clan Maclean. But Nicholas Maclean-Bristol, author of 'Warriors and Priests' has been unable to find any record of this charter
In 1535/6 John son of Terlach received regrant of (some? all?) lands in the Barony of Ardgour [Notes 9 and 10 on page 195], and entered into them legally in 1542 [page 144].
On 29 September 1546 Hector Mor, Chief of Clan Maclean (of Duart) received the royal gift of the ward of the 22 merklands and barony of Ardgour, which had belonged to the late John Maclean of Ardgour (RSS iii,1916) (page 144)
After John's death Hector Mor of Duart is said ....... to have conveyed the barony to Allan son of John son of Allan third son of Ewen of Ardgour [Note 12 on page 196, see also 144]
Allan failed to be legally 'entered' to the estate. As a result the barony of Ardgour was for many years held from Duart as feudal superior. The Ardgour family remained in occcupation but it was not until 1685 that they were to hold their barony again directly from the Crown. The failure of a tenant-in-chief to obtain 'entry' from the Crown made his heirs' position extremely vulnerable. The Crown was usually in need of cash and was happy to sell the feudal dues and rents which were owed to it when heirs failed to obtain legal entry for any lenth of time. (HP i, 335)[Page 144].
