This name was also sept-napped by Buchanan of Auchmar, and probably derives from Caine mac Dougall's son who appears on the record in Galloway in 1298-1303 as Gibbon fitz Kan. Prior to 1508 Auchnagarron of Glendaruel (OS Landranger 55, 006824) was held of the crown by Dungall Gibbonsoun (i.e. Dougall MacGibbon). Though the feudal superiority of this estate was granted to the Campbells in 1513, the old lairds remained in possession until at least the middle of the 18th century, when Duncan MacGibbon of Achnagarn/Achingarren was Commissioner for Supply in Argyll and Surveyor of His Majesty's Customs at Glasgow. "Baron McGibbon" sold Ormidale in 1728, and Lephinkill, with some other lands, in 1740 [Archibald Brown, "History of Cowal", 83, 85, 93, 162].
