The movie “Mary Queen of Scots” came out in Australia on 17 January 2019, in which the 5th Lord Boyd was one her councillors.
This movie came out in Australian theatres on 17 January 2019.
Robert Boyd, the 5th Lord Boyd, who died on 3 January 1589, was one of a number of her councillors while she was held in captivity in England by Queen Elizabeth I.
Lord Boyd and some 30 Boyd Lairds and Cadet Branches joined her at the Battle of Langside, South West of Glasgow, in 1568 and had a Remission from the King in 1571 for this action.
Although Lord Boyd was, at this time a Protestant, he fought for the Catholic Mary Queen of Scots. (I have yet to find why that happened.) And I will have to search my papers to find out whom her other Scottish Councillors were and post that list to members).
I have not yet seen this movie, but hope to do so this Tuesday, but from the TV advertisements I have seen for this movie, it seems to show that Mary Queen of Scots was shot to death when in fact she had her head cut off. So, it will be interesting to see what other “historical facts” may be changed in this movie?
One story that is “told” in Boyd history is that Lord Boyd brought the Duke of Norfolk’s diamond to her. Time unknown! And shortly after this, as the Duke of Norfolk, was said to be involved in a “plot” to marry Mary Queen of Scots and overthrow Queen Elizabeth of England, he (the Duke of Norfolk) was executed shortly afterwards for this “plot”.
I have never heard as to what has happened to the Norfolk diamond. (I am sure that some of our ladies will be able to tell us where it went to?)
I will let you know more after I see the movie.

Has anyone seen this movie and are they able to question so of its facts or certify other “historical facts”?

Does anyone know whom Boyd Avenue, East Providence, Providence Co., Rhode Island was named after?
While searching for data for another project, I came across the sale of a house in Boyd Avenue, East Providence, Rhode Island.
As there are only three Boyds listed in the 1790 Census for Rhode Island – East Greenwich, Kent County; Johnstown Township, (to the west of Providence town), Providence County; and Providence Township, Providence County, Rhode Island. And as Rhode Island does not seem to have a State with that many Boyd families, why would a “street” be named after a “Boyd”?
So, do any members know after whom this Boyd Avenue, East Providence, 02914 might have been called after and when it was named?

Are there any one researching any Boyd family in Moffat, Dumfriesshire, Scotland ?
This is not a location that comes to mind when searching for Boyd families.
Moffat is about 20 miles, NE of Dumfries town in southern Scotland. It is just outside of Dumfries, to the north, that the first Lord Boyd, Robert Boyd’s brother Sir Alexander Boyd is thought to have had his estate before it was forfeited in 1469. However, the family that I am looking at is in the 1700’s, so may have come form any number of places to Moffat.

If anyone is also on the Dumfriesshire net list, you may wish to copy this message to that list please.
