Welcome to my personal genealogy website. It is currently undergoing construction and therefore you will find that some of the pages, as yet, do not incorporate any design and some of the information is a bit jumbled. However, the information is all there and I hope you will enjoy finding your own ancestors here.
I have divided my pages into three sections where you will find highly detailed charts of my father's more distant ancestors, and biographical information relating to specific individuals. I have also provided a chart showing the most recent generations, and I am preparing a location map.
If you look at each of the sections you will see that there are actually Kennedys on each! There are infact 4 lines of Kennedys altogether! However, I have not traced any connection between them. There is a tradition that the Kennedys on my grandfather Broun's side were descended from the Earls of Cassilis. The Kennedys from whom my great grandfather Stewart were descended were also from Ayrshire. The Kennedys from whom my great grandmother Lang were desended were from Dunbartonshire. There are also several Stewart lines and one Stuart line. Sofar as I can make out the Stewarts were all from Bute. The Stuarts were probably from Glasgow.
