Eoin mac Mártainn was born in 1498 on the Isle of Skye to a minor house under the service of clan Donald. When he was 16 his father sent him on a long journey to the south-eastern part of Scotland, the Earldom of Fife, there to study at the famous University of St Andrews.  It was his intent that Eoin enter a clerical life, but young Eoin had other aspirations.

It was at St Andrews that he met a fellow Martin, a cadet with the clan Cameron whose full name has been lost to history.  This young cadet was studying the arts of war and intended to seek out opportunities in Europe as a mercenary.   The thought of traveling and fighting excited young Eoin far more than a quiet life as a cleric and he pledged himself in service to the Camerons and soon found himself bound for Europe to seek his fortune.

His first opportunity came in with the Frisian Peasant’s revolt in Holland, signing on to fight with the Hapsburg family to put down a revolt against Hapsburg rule.  He fought in the service of the Hapsburgs in Holland from 1516 to 1522, when a dispute over the succession of the Holy Roman Emperor pulled the Hapsburgs into conflict with the Valois.  Over the next 5 years Eoin fought in many skirmishes throughout France.

While campaigning in France he met the love of his life, Leigh, the daughter of a wandering English noble, from St Antoine l'Abbaye in southern France. When Lady Leigh entered her teens her father sent her to a convent, but a nun's life was not for her and at the age of 18 she met the dashing young cadet and fell madly in love. Vowing to raise his family in peace, Eoin returned to Fife with his bride and from his spoils of war purchased a small estate in West Wemyss on the coast.
