Ancient Crest of Clan MacIvor
Origin of Clan MacIvor
From research notes of Chaplain Daniel McEver, re Crest:
"Based on currently available research, several sources suggest that this
Coat of Arms and Crest were in use by some MacIvors/MacIvers prior to
the Argyll (Campbell) boar's head Crest. Some MacIvers outside Argyll
continued to use these arms after the Argyll MacIvers officially became a
sept clan of the Campbells in 1689. See the pedigree of Kenneth MacIver
of Stornoway, Scotland in "Burke's Landed Gentry," 1939, p. 2809, and
especially its associated MacIver arms as displayed on plate XXXII.
Further research is required, however, to confirm that the above arms
were indeed the old MacIver arms prior to 1689. A full discussion on
this subject is pending."
