Ewen MacPherson of Cluny MacPherson

Ewen MacPherson of Cluny was born in 1804. He was the grandson of Ewen of Cluny who fought for Bonnie Prince Charlie during the '45 Jacobite Rising. He became the 20th chief of the clan on the death of his father, Duncan, in 1817.

He married Sarah Justina in 1832 and they had four sons and three daughters.

Ewen MacPherson was the great-grandson of Simon Lord Lovat and the great-great-grandson of Sir Ewan Cameron of Lochiel. With this great military ancestry it was unsurprising that he was an officer in the 42nd Highlanders, the Black Watch, and a Lieutenant-Colonel in the Inverness-shire Highland Rifle Volunteers until two or three years before his death in 1885.
