Mike: You are right. I have seen this mish-mash of Boyd families all over the internet for years. Especially about the family of George and Isabella Boyd of Gap, Pa. and the St. John's Episcopal Church. Of all the early Colonial era Boyds, this particular family is probably the most famous, most written about, most researched, and most in error. I have always doubted the ages and marriage dates given on George and Isabella and all their sons. I think they were all born earlier than is generally shown. I always cringe when I see "the known sons of George and Isabella Boyd". We "know" very little and most of what we "know" is clouded by conflicting versions of this family history, usually written centuries after the fact. Like you, I would like to know what the Slaymaker Papers say. But even those events occurred 50 years after the fact. I wish someone would post a brief synopsis of the Slaymaker Papers. You know, just a few paragraphs on how it all began and what transpired down through the years. And I would love to know more about James Boyd, grandson of George and Isabella. He seems to be the biggest mystery to me. Apparently, he was the son of George Jr. who died in Pa. and was married to a Douglass? And son James never came to Virginia and somehow acquired a considerable fortune. I've read Amos Slaymaker was his lawyer and he began administering his estate after his death? I have seen a paraphrased version of his will that allegedly is in Lancaster County will book "O"? I have never seen the original will. James supposedly died in 1820 and left his fortune to his four uncles who had moved to Lunenburg county, Virginia. Of course, by then all his uncles were dead and all of their immediate heirs began coming out of the woodwork from all over the south and west. How did James acquire this large estate? What did he do for a living? Did he ever marry? Apparently, he had no children to leave his money to? Maybe Barry Boyd can answer some of this. I have no clue. Edwin

tract of land in 1819 to James Boyd and William Boyd, Jr. The deed states,
"I, William Boyd, Sr. of Sandy branch do sell---." It was the custom, if no

The Boyds of Dungal, near Cloughwater, County Antrim, Ireland
While searching for data about a Boyd family of Forthtown, near Claughwater, County Antrim, I found reference to a Boyd family of Dungal, near Cloughwater. (At this time I am not sure if Claughwater and Cloughwater are the same place, with different spelling.)
There were no members of this family named or the length of time that they had been in County Antrim. However, they were being cited by an “informant” in 1799 as being involved with United Irishmen “uprising” and said to be making, or supplying material to make, gunpowder.
These Boyds were tenant farmer and Presbyterian.
This is the first time that I have come across this Boyd family in County Antrim amongst the, some, 100 Boyd Family Chapters that I have collected over the last three decades.
At this time, I am not sure if any of these Boyds were hung for “being said” to be involved with the United Irishmen or if they “took a quick departure” to the USA – most likely to Pennsylvania where many other Boyd families from County Antrim seemed to have migrated to since John Boyd, brother of Rev Adam Boyd, arrived there in 1714.
If you can supply any details of this family, prior to 1799, or what might have happened to them after 1799, I would like to hear from you please.

Not a single Boyd family but a combination of Boyd Families.
From the website https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__coadb.com_surnames_b... it provided the family below which looks like it has come from another website which is not cited. Nor is it clear whom posted the original data.
“Robert Boyd, , son of Adam II, , was born in Antrim, Ulster, Ireland in 1678 AD. He married Elizabeth Jennet Johnston and had six sons with her as follows: George, James, William, Robert Jr., John, , and Joseph S. His son George was also born in Antrim in 1691 , and he went to colonial America where he died in Chester, Pennsylvania, having married Isabella Boyd and had six sons with her: Richard, Patrick, Jonathan, George Jr., Robert C. Sr., and James. His son George Jr., , was born in Salisburg, Lancaster, Pennsylvania and he married Mary Douglas and later Margaret, , having a son, also named George.  This George was born in 1741 and he married Jemima Birge, with whom he had a son named William.  His son William Jesse Boyd, , was born in Virginia in 1754. He married Nancy Bailey and had two sons with her: William Jesse II and Jesse.  His son Jesse was born in Virginia in 1795 and he married Permelia Hurd, having had two issue with her: Henry and Caleb.  His son Caleb was born in Virginia in 1827 and he married Martha Brammer and fathered the following children with her: Putman Nathaniel, Peoria, Utah, John Libert, and Martha Adeline. His son Putnam Nathaniel Boyd, , was born in Patrick, VA in January of 1853. He had a son named James Samuel who was born in Woolwine, Virginia in May 1888. He had a daughter named Catherine Boyd who was born in 1922 (died in the 1999 in Collinsville, VA) who married Frederick Herbert Price Jr., having six children with him: Barry, Rodney, Crystal, Cynthia, Samuel, and Cathy.”
When looked at more closely, this appears to be a combination of a number of unrelated Boyd families.
Does anyone know whom posted this passage to a website originally and their name and contact details, please.
If you look at some of the dates in this article – you have an grandfather born in 1741 and his grandson born in 1754, only 13 years later.
For these reasons alone, I think that this tree is a combination of Boyd families and not a single family.
If this is your family please let the list know? Or if you can identify “part” of your family in this tree and can supply further details please advise the list and myself.

Hi Mike, I have verified my most distant relative as my 4th gr. grandfather James Boyd, who came to the US in 1818, first PA then settled in New York where he died in 1820. I believe that he was born in 1767 in Ayr, Ayr Scotland and is the son of Thomas Boyd born in Ayr, Ayr in 1724, but am not 100% sure. His son, my 3rd gr.. grandfather is James Jr who was born in Forthtown near Claughwater in Antrim Co. Ireland around 1812 and came here with his parents and siblings in 1817 or 1818. James Jr. Moved to Lenawee County, MI in the early 1830's after his older brother, Robert Boyd had already visited and obtained land in the area around 1831. I believe that there were 3 other siblings of Robert and James Jr. but have yet to verify.
So that I can put some time aside before I go to Stone Mountain Georgia, will anyone be coming up on either Saturday or Sunday to these Games? And what areas did their family come from?
I do not know when the first Boyd settled in Florida, but I assume it was most likely in the early 1800’s and they most likely came down from Georgia and settled in the northern part of Florida. Although, knowing the Boyds, one or two might have been one of those Florida sailors of the 1700’s.
However, now days with Florida being a retirement area, I fully expect it would be one of the top five States to have Boyd living in it and people have come from many other areas of the USA, so their “early migrant paths” will not be just Florida. Or down the Great Wagon Road from PA or MD.
And if you have already done your family tree, or are currently working on it, I would like to get either a hard copy or an Word e-copy of it it please to go with the other 900 Boyd Family Chapters and include your Family Chapter in the Clan Boyd Pyramid and put it in a suitable area volume of clan Boyd of Scotland.
I will be arriving in Georgia on Sunday 14 October to go through various family history Books at the Cobb County Library and maybe the State Library depending on time.
At this time I am not sure what events are on are on at Stone Mountain on Friday 19 October, but I certainly will be at the Boyd tent on Saturday and Sunday to talk about Boyd history, how to do your family tree and provide any other assistance and advice and to receive any family trees that anyone may wish to bring along and give me to include with the other 900 Family chapters in Clan Boyd of Scotland.
However, with all these things people might be away over the 20-21 of October or already have a prior engagement, do would anyone like to meet me – say Thursday night? I have not yet asked my host if Cobb County Library is open Thursday nights or if there is a suitable room available.
But if you can’t be at Stone Mountain and want to meet with me please let me know – perhaps privately and before I leave home I can advise the net list that this meeting will be held at a time and place.
Historical committee, HBS
Rick Wilson bring out a very good point, when a person goes to your local Library (or any other source) you will find other Boyd family data.
Do not just sit on it, tell this Boyd net list, so that others are aware that information is available.
So tell the list that in ABC book, publication, Journal, – along with the full title of the book and its author – and hopefully page numbers – that you found an outline of the family of Alexander Boyd or William Boyd, and if available his wife.
This will help others to fill in the gaps of their Boyd Family Branch.
They in turn may be able to with that vital clue that can link your present family with a much larger known Boyd tree.
And for those that go to a Library perhaps your last 10 minutes at the Library, you may look for “other” Boyd families and then post hte result of that search after each visit.
Thank you and good hunting

So are any of these entries your family?
The second problem when did the Boyds arrive in each state?
In the case of MA, this is “thought” to be with the Rev MacGregor migration of 1718. While it is known that about 10 Boyds signed the Petition to Governor Shute, it still not yet confirmed how many actually came in 1718.
Then in about 1720, we have two brothers that landed at Boston, MA and a third brother left the Boat at Block Island, RI.
In the Case of CT, there was a John Boyd buying land in Rye, then in CT (now New York) in 1678. He is thought to have come from Greenwick, CT and from the names of the people he bought land with may have come from England, rather than Ireland or Scotland [This is Mike Boyd’s theory and not based on any known facts.]
So we nee dot work through all these entries to work out the families and to find out where they family know or think that they migrated from.
Hopefully, we can answers to all these questions in time for Melanie Gustin’s Games at Scotland, eastern CT on 7 October 2018.

Mike and fellow Boyd researchers,
I am seeking information about Andrew Boyd (1769 place unknown - 1856 Pike
County, Mississippi). His parents were Andrew James Boyd Sr. (1721 Scotland
- 1795 Georgia) and Jane Fleming (1729 Scotland - abt. 1770 South Carolina).
This Boyd family landed in Savannah, Georgia from Belfast in 1772.
I would like to establish where Andrew was born - Scotland where his parents
were from and his other siblings were born, or Ireland as the 1850 US Census
states. When did the family leave Scotland?
The 1850 US Census lists his occupation as a teacher. What and where did he
Any clues would be greatly appreciated!
In a website I found recently it has this distribution for Boyds in the USA
Popularity & Geographic Distribution
The last name Boyd ranks 164th in popularity in the United Status as of the 2000 Census. The name ranks particularly high in the following five states: Tennessee, Georgia, Virginia, Mississippi, and South Carolina.
I found this list interesting.
I would have thought that Texas, California, Missouri and even PA or NY may have topped these states above.
Unfortunately, this source does not provide any numbers.
So does anyone have any better information as to where Boyd live in the USA and their numbers.

This is to advise members that on 3 October 2018, I will be flying out of Brisbane to go directly to Providence, RI and arrive there late Wednesday night.
On Thursday 4 Oct and Friday 5 October, I have been advised by the RI State Library to go to the RI Archives to look for known Boyd families and publications there.
On Saturday 6 October, I am planning to go to the West Warwick, RI Library, but from their website this closes on Saturdays 1 pm.
Daryl Jamieson, our RI convenor, has a drumming competition on Saturday afternoon. I had hoped that he may been able to organise venue/meeting place so I could talk to any Boyds in RI, MA or any of the other New England States on that day or late Saturday afternoon.
Hopefully Daryl can advise me in a few days if there is any alternatives venue or someone in RI may be able to suggest a Family History Society, Genealogical Society or some other venue where I can meet those Boyd (or Boyd descendants) that wish to talk to me about Boyd family history, doing their tree, [and give me their family tree to add to the other 900 Boyd Family Chapters] writing up their family history and tree.
I am also quite happy to talk to any other Society about visiting Ireland, Scotland and England and the things that you need to do in planning your visit. Buying your Airline ticket is about item 10 not item 1.
I look forward to seeing you in October

I have just received this from a private group that I am involved with.
This Hugh Boy is of Ballycastle and Charles, if I recall, is his brother. And it may be that Hugh Boyd was having to sign papers to get a commission as a Colonel in a Army Unit in County Antrim in response to the Highland and Jocobite (?) uprising in 1745.
I can’t see a date from this website,
But lady K would appear to be the Countess of Kilmarnock the wife of William Boyd, 4th Earl of Kilmarnock, who died in 1747 from heart break following her husbands death in August 1746.
From my quick look, I could not see any contact details to ask any questions of. But the current selling “I THINK IS DRAWING SOME CONCLUSIONS” about family connections that are not there – except their surname is Boyd.

Over the last month or so, there seems to have been very few Boyd queries asking help to over some your brick wall.
Or to help find your next generation. Or to fill in missing gaps in missing children on later generations.
If you have a problem with your family tree or history, someone on this list :”MAY” be able to to connect to your family or provide you with sources they used to find part of their family.
So if you have a problem you can’t solve, tell the list, and you will have several hundred people whom maybe able ot provide advice.

I am just going through a website that shows “BOYARD” as the French version for spelling Boyd.
Does anyone know if that is correct or not?
I do know that there were BOYD at Le Rochelle, SW France and some of those sons went to South Carolina in the 1680’s. Then early 1700’s went to Dublin and a little later went to London, where John Boyd became involved with the East India Company and Slavary in Africa and in the 1760’s he became a Baronet of Danson Hall, Kent.
So it appear that this Boyd family, whom I think is a part of the Boyds of Portincross, Ayrshire, but have not yet been able to prove that.

I’m looking to connect with anyone having knowledge of early Boyd families in Bucks County PA in the 1700s, especially in the areas of Plumstead, Northampton, and Upper Makefield Townships.
I had an amazing discovery about my William Boyd ancestor (b. 1753 - d. after 1833), who I originally reported two months ago as having lived in New London and East Nottingham Townships in Chester County, PA in the early 1800s. I learned that his early life began in Bucks County, PA.
I recently found my ancestor’s Revolutionary War declaration at Fold3.com. The above mentioned William Boyd made a declaration to receive a government war pension. In this 8-page document he outlines, among other things, the following:
1) He was born 23 Jan 1753 in Plumstead, Bucks, PA.
2) He volunteered for service in the Revolutionary War seven times, twice under General George Washington. He enlisted five times from the township of Northampton, Bucks County, PA and twice from Newtown Township in Bucks PA.
3) After the war, he returned home to Northampton Twp, Bucks for a time; then to Upper Makefield, Bucks County; then to Delaware County PA near the towns of Marcus Hook and Chester; then to the New London, Chester County PA area; then to Washington County PA; then to East Nottingham, Chester County; and finally to the Poor House in Bradford, Chester, PA by 1829.
No dates were provided in the letter for the specific locations for where he claimed to have lived, but through other records, such as census, tax, and poor children’s school records, I have reconstructed a partial timeline. He was in Northampton Twp 1776-1779; in Upper Makefield Twp probably around 1780; in Delaware County PA prior to 1800; in New London/East Nottingham Twps between 1800 and 1819; in Washington County PA about 1820; back to East Nottingham by 1825; and in the Poor House in East Bradford by 1829.
Does anyone have information on any 1700-era Boyd families living in Bucks County, PA?
