The first was Sir Paul oduibhn, the second was Arthur Urchanach, the third Arthur Cruachan who was Tutor to his niece Evah and Depute of Lorne for the King, and the fourth was Arthur Andrairan. This last had two sons, Patrick Drynach from whom descend the MacArthurs of Innistrynich on Lochawe, and Duncan Darleith, progenitor of the MacArthurs of Darleith in the Lennox, who took the name of their property as their designation. Paul odhuibn married Marion, daughter of Godfred King of Man. He was known as Paul an Sparain, ‘Paul of the Sporran’, from his being Pursemaster or Treasurer to the King, whom the author reckons to have been King Malcolm Canmore or his father King Duncan.
