I hope most of you know that the original
Diarmids were the beginning of the campbell
clan AND LATER WERE CALLED A SEPT OF THAT CLAN when it should have been thew other way
round. Most of the real MacDiarmids emigrated from Islay (near what is now Bowmore) in the early 1800's to north america
and since veryfew were litterate the customs
or immigration people spelled their names as they saw fit e.g. mcdermott mcdermid etc.
