Clan Phail to commence selection of Clan Commander, as advised by the Lord Lyon King of Arms

Sep 5, 2022

The Clan Phail lost its last Chief of the Clan in 1904 after he died in Australia without children and no known Heirs. John E. Mackfall, President of the Clan Phail Society, has announced that the Society will hold a “Family Convention” to include Society, family and Clan members in a meeting in Scotland and invite all those interested by the names of MacPhail (all those of the many different spellings) to attend under observation of a Lord Lyon court supervising Officer. The aim of the gathering is to select a Clan Commander, a temporary Head of the Clan until a new Chief can be selected. The Commander can only be in position to arrange, organise and plan for the Clans promotion and eventually for the clan to propose a new Chief to the Lord Lyon for his consideration in the future.
