According to my GPa DOHERTY/DOCHERTY our family is descended from an extremely old Scottish family, not one of the Irish lines, for whom many of the location names Loch DOCHARTIE, DOCHART Glen, River DOCHARTIE etc. are named after. I do agree with you, however, that the Irish lines of DOCHERTY came into Scotland after the Irish Clans lead by a DOHERTY chief were defeated by the British and declared outlaws and driven out of Ireland. These lines would be the later lines of which you speak.

My great great grandfather was James Dochard he was born at Comrie Perthshire Scotland on 4th May, 1831 he was the second son of Donald and Janet Dochard (nee Stewart), He came to Australia in 1856. So maybe it was Doherty/ Docherty at one stage - but records show that it is Dochard. Only family I know of is a brother Alexander born 1839 and Janet born 1833.
