In Reply to: family tartan/crest/history/shield by Leckie,Sheldon of 240

The Leckey's, Leckie's, and all the other variations of the name are a "sept" or sub-family of the the MacGregor Clan. Their tartan and Coat of Arms are quite easy to find. As for the Leckey's (and similiar names) the coat of arms is a boar's head and an anchor atop a shield and the motto is "Deus Navem Gubernat", or "God Navigates the Ship". The MacGregor name was outlawed twice in Scotland (they were on the loosing end of things a lot of the time) and they had to take other names. Leckie is Gaelic for "flat, rocky place" and a local town was named "Leckie". So it was a name taken by some of the MacGregors.
