Seth, Seath, Sheach, Shiach, Shaw—These five names are the anglicised form of the North of Scotland sept name M'Keith (Mac Sithich), also anglicised Keith. This sept belongs in the North to the Clan Mcintosh, and the name is derived from Sithich, son of Gillchrist, son of John, son of Angus, the sixth chief of the M'Intoshes.
It and the Argyle sept name of Shaw, the latter being written in Gaelic Mac Gille-Sheathanaich, is sometimes confused with Norse name of Shaw in the districts on the Scottish border, and in North-West of England.

Charlotte Milligan Fox, sister of the poet Alice Milligan, was a founding member of the Irish Folk Song Society and an indefatigable field collector of Irish traditional music. Her singularly important work on Irish haprers is here presented for the twenty-first century reader. This edition of Annals offers a much greater number of illustrations than were included in the original 1911 publication, a full biographical introduction, an extensive bibliography of the writings of Milligan Fox and an appendix discussing the variant texts of Arthur O’Neills Memoirs.
