Re: Eccles Rant - No Answers?
There are some other RSCDS name problems related to this. If you look at the Gaelic name for Menzies Rant, there is an interesting spelling error. The RSCDS Book translation comes out the "monastic men" when it should be "metelurgical men". If you look at the same family, almost same arms, in England, Manners (Dukes of Rutland, and in France, you will see that the name comes from miners.
