Mark Rugg Gunn's quasi-official 'Clan Gunn' book page 35 points to a further amazing problem with the non-existent 'Clan' Gunn Chief line and the non-existent 'Clan Gunn' Orkney Islands / Viking origin.
He says of the 'Chiefs' between Ottar and the Coroner that 'we know nothing of any of them except... Ingram Gunn'. That's right, a book which accepts the romantic twaddle line of 'Clan Gunn' history can find no information - no stories, no hard evidence - to support the supposed Chief line. And the one Ingram Gunn 'fact' is easily disposed of which I will do in another entry.
So (going back to earlier entries) we have a major academic saying there is not the slightest evidence for the supposed Chief Snaekoll 'Gunn' returning to Scotland from exile in disgrace in Norway, the supposed Chief Ottar Snaekollsson has been clearly shown to not be a descendant of Snaekoll 'Gunn' and in fact he has nothing to do with any Gunn, and now we have the well-known, romantically inclined history of the 'Clan' Gunn admitting there is no evidence to support the random list of Gunn Chiefs dreamt up in the mid 1800s.
And yet the Clan Gunn Societies continue to push the line of Orkney Islands descent and that 'Clan Gunn Chiefs' were meant to exist in this period...
