Hector Munro of Fyrish, Contullich & Kildermorie, in Alness
Mackenzie reports that Hector "is said by the Munro genealogists to have married Helen, daughter of Hector Roy Mackenzie, I. Baron of Gairloch. But this could not have been the case. There is no trace of such a daughter in the Gairloch genealogies, and Hector Roy dired at a very advanced age in 1528, whereas a sasine to this supposed daughter, Helen, is dated nearly eighty years later".
