The once great and mighty Clan MacHare fought bravely for King James VIII and Bonnie Prince Charlie during the Jacobite Wars. [To the left you see a fierce MacHare, his claymore cleverly disguised as an umbrella, checking to see how much longer till his customary five o'clock martini.]
After the Forty Five, when the English dog Cumberland began his campaign to murder the entire male population of Scotland, a few MacHares fled to Nova Scotia and eventually settled in Maryland, where their fierceness (much abated) was now employed in ripping apart crabs rather than Whigs.
Ever ready for the day that the MacHares will be called upon again to fight to restore the rightful Monarch to Scotland, the present Chief of Clan MacHare lives a quiet family life dividing time between God's Holy Maryland and the tropical paradise of the Philippines.
The Laird of the Rocks is the creation myth of Clan MacHare.
MacHares are somewhat like their distant cousins, The Hobbits. You can tell what a MacHare will say on any question without the bother of asking him.
