Perhaps this idea has something to do with Holinshed's "certeine
wizzards":

http://www.clicknotes.com/macbeth/Holinshed/Holin274.html

Neither could he afterwards abide to looke vpon the said Makduffe,
either for that he thought his puissance ouer great; either else for
that he had learned of certeine wizzards, in whose words he put great
confidence (for that the prophesie had happened so right, which the
three faries or weird sisters had declared vnto him) how that he ought
to take heed of Makduffe, who in time to come should seeke to destroie
him.
