III. The McIVERS of Dig.
The members of the Clan who settled in the parish of Uig, and possessed,
along with portions of the Mainland of Lewis there, some islands on its
Western Coast, are said to have been partly of the Gress and partly of the
Ness stock, but no exact genealogical distinction has been found possible.
Of the families traceable to Uig, the most important are the Maclvers of
Liverpool. Of these there are two families, related to each other, of which
the one held at the end of the last and the beginning of the present century,
and the latter now holds, a very high position in the business and maritime
enterprise of the city. The author of these pages was informed by the late
Rev. John M'lver of Kilmuir in Skye, that one of the elder family and his
father, the Rev. Colin MTver of Glenelg, traced a relationship to each other,
and that the former was of the Ness stock.
