I have done a lot of research on this subject and have the following which is the correct imformation;
Firstly the nam.In Gaelic it is " Mac Gillie an Dubhthaich" meaning The son of the servant of St Duthac.
Secondly .The Anglisisation comes from the Latin for Duthac which is "Duthios"
St Duthac was born around 1000Ad ( Know one is sure exactly)in Tain.We do however know that he died in 1065ADin Ireland. His remains however were not returned to to Tain till around 1250AD(some 200 years later) and was buried at St Duthac's Chapel(said to be the site where he was born).
His Shirt was carried in front of Scottish Armies for many years ,and also worn by the Earls of Ross in battle , but disappeared at the time of the reformation .
to be continued...
