This is the possible family of William Boyd who said to have gone North
with James Boyd when he became the 15th Earl of Errol.
31 BOYD OF TURRIFF
This family is thought to comes from Robert Boyd's (see chapter 30) fourth
son, William. Robert was the fourth son of the first Earl of Kilmarnock

Without further details it is difficult to develop this family any more.
For example in the IGI there are 2 George's married between 1775 and 1801,
while the more common name of William there are 23 marriages between 1780

The dates and some of the names of these Children below were give to me by
Mr Malcolm Boyd, 10 Woodcote Gree Road, Epson, Surrey KT18 7DH England
in 1993. He is part of the Boyd's of Howth House, Ireland.
I spent several hours yesterday going through the 1994 IGI for the UK (from
A to Margaret) but could not find any children born to Alexander and Helen
Reid. Perhaps some of these names and dates will fit some ones family out
R3 Alexander Boyd, b 17xx, between 1719 and 1724, (Kilmarnock), d 17xx, m
177x, Helen Reid, dau of Mr Reid, of
Latham, near Midcalder, b 17xx, d 17xx, and had issue:-
[Lived: North Bank, near Linlithgow ,
- In my late father's papers, I was given pp 27-29 which appears to come
from Pedigree of the House of Boyd, 1904 which had been sent to him in 1982
in response to a letter he wrote to the Dick Institute, Kilmarnock seeking
information on our family. In this document it states Alexander was born
at Kilmarnock, whence he removed to North Bank near Linlithgow. As the
1981 IGI for Scotland has his sister Janet born 28/12/1735 at Kilmarnock,
it would appear that Robert moved his family from Kilmarnock after 1735.
It was in 1735 that Dean Castle, the Earl of Kilmarnock's home, burnt and
this may have been the cause of Robert's move. Linlithgow was where his
mother's family had estates.
S1 James Boyd, b 1771, d 18xx, m ?
S2 Robert Boyd, b 1772, d 17xx, died young (likely to have been after
William's birth - R3/S6).

S4 Alexander Boyd, b 1776, d 18xx, m ?
S5 Jane Boyd, b 1778, d 18xx, m ?

S11 David Boyd, b 179x, d 18xx, m ?

This is possibly the family of this John Boyd. If anyone can add any
additional iinformation I would be most grateful
R2 John Boyd, b 18/8/1719 (Kilmarnock) (1), d 17xx, m 17xx,

When Diana Binks-Proulx recently posted some information on her Boyd's of
Falkirk it made me focus on this family again - Ch 30 Boyd of North Bank,
near Linlithgow . Depending on the locationof North Bank, this family
might have lived in either Stirlingshire or West Lothian. I will post the
first and second generaton of this family and then 3 families (or possible
families) of the children of the 2nd generation as separate Emails.
This Robert was thought to have been the 4th son of the first Earl of
Kilmarnock. In a posting last year I showed that the 4th son and 5th child
of the First Earl was born about 1670 and was Christened on 8 July 1670 at
Dumbarton, Kirkintillock Parish, Dumbartonshire, so the first Robert below
could alone be a grandson.
P1Q4 Robert Boyd, b 6?/8/1689 (Kilmarnock ?), d November 1772, (said in
W.P. Boyd p 120 d 1761) m 25/10/1714 (Kilmarnock), Margaret Thomson, dau of
Thomson, b 16xx, d 17xx, and had issue:-
- The following is a footnote in Pedigree of the House of Boyd, 1904, p
"Robert Boyd of Kilmarnock was born in August 1689, and baptised on the
24th of the same month. He died at Kilmarnock in 1760 (aged?) 72. He
married Margaret Thompson, and had 4 sons and a daughter. John settled in
London; William settled in the north of Scotland; James at Newbury Port,
Mass. ; Alexander, born about 1720 at Kilmarnock (see p 28); and Margaret
who married Fairservice of Kilmarnock."
>From the 1981 IGI for Scotland I have found 7 sons, 1 daughter and 1 child
sex unknown. Would the above comments mean the other children died in
infancy? or is there two Robert Boyd and Margaret Thomson's living in
Kilmarnock in this period.

in New Brunswick, during the Revolution he sided with the colonists and
thereby forfeited his grant (p 120, W.P. Boyd History of the Boyd Family
and its Descendants, 1912.
This James's descendants are outlined in the book The History of the Boyd
Clan and Related Families by Frederick T. Boyd Ph. D., 1962 (and from what
I have been told but never seem said that the Robert who married Margaret
Thomson was the son of the First Earl)

You will notice that different published sources provide conflicting
information on this family, especially the number of children. If any one
has any additional information on these children or any additional families
from stem from them I would be most grateful to receive the inforamtion

I was sent this from another list I belong to. I find it to be important
and well said. Please don't credit me for the article. Thanks for
A message on the Internet caught my eye the other day and I
can't get it out of my mind. A West Coast genealogist had been exchanging
information with a researcher in Virginia for some time. Then it
last message bounced -- it couldn't be delivered as the address no longer
existed. Fortunately she had received a number of family group sheets
from her correspondent which listed a telephone number. When she called
number a man answered, so she asked for her Internet friend and, after a
slight hesitation was told, "Oh, Mary Ann passed away three weeks ago."
Shocked, but ever gracious, she expressed her sympathy and commented how
close this long-distance relationship had become and how it will be
missed by her. The husband explained that he was sorry that he couldn't
be of any help because he really didn't know much about what his wife was
doing with her genealogy.
Perhaps you too have noticed at genealogical gatherings that
the average age of the participants is something in excess of 39 years,
at least judging by hair color. Most of us really don't have a lot of
time to devote to our hobby until after the kids are grown, out of school
and we've retired. Then it is no longer a hobby, it becomes an obsession.
At some point in our continuous search for dead people, our ancestors, we
recognize our own mortality and start to think about a permanent home for
our research. If our children or grandchildren appear to be interested,
we have it made, but frequently that's not the case. Then what happens to
Genealogists are usually pretty smart people, until it comes
to providing for the distribution of their genealogical assets. The
latter, in my case anyway, is a room full of books, journals, magazines,
maps, photographs, brochures, newsletters, computer equipment and
furniture (desk, chairs, file cabinets, tables, lamps, etc.). The files
are loaded with folders bearing family and town names, historic events,
and a bunch labeled
"MISC." There are miles of computer printouts, hundreds of photocopies,
and many "original" vital records. My desk is usually loaded with
correspondence awaiting an answer -- either mine or from someone else.
What should my
wife do with all this stuff when I make the ultimate research trip -- a
personal meeting with my ancestors?
Some of our brighter colleagues say "My college library is
getting all my stuff" or it's going to the local public library or to the
LDS Family History Library in Salt Lake City or even to the Library of
Congress. Well, I hate to be the one to tell you this, but unless you are
a celebrity or a huge financial donor, these institutions probably won't
want your material-- they just don't have room for it. They would be
grateful for a copy of your book, but they might not want the manuscript
or research notes. The FHL would appreciate a GEDCOM disk of your
genealogy database files, but it doesn't want your paper pedigree charts
or family group sheets.
So what are your spouse and children to do with all of your
stuff? They could really do a couple of dumb things with it if you don't
provide guidance to them while you still can. It could be placed in the
weekly trash collection and don't say "They wouldn't do that" because it
unfortunately happens all the time. How about a garage sale? Now that is
really scary, but it also happens every day. Remember all those old
photos and tintypes you have seen in flea markets? How about all those
bargain genealogy books you bought because you got to that garage sale
before the dealers did? They all had to come from someplace.
What should you do to insure the sane distribution of your
genealogical assets? Perhaps the first thing is to make a record of what
you have and then try to keep it current. Show the acquisition date and
you paid for each item on the inventory sheets. This is especially
helpful for artifacts, collections, and books. A photographic record of
these items, including those of rare books, could also be useful.
Microfilm, microfiche and
complete photocopies of books and some records have value. Back issues of
many journals, newsletters, and magazines are also in demand by
genealogists and therefore have value. However, if you don't tell them
what is valuable, your heirs probably won't know.
Now that you have identified your assets, you need to tell
someone what you want done with them. Maybe the simplest way is to
prepare a letter to your heirs, but remember this lacks the force of law.
If they want to, they
can toss everything in the trash. A better way to provide for the
distribution is in your will, particularly if you also designate
sufficient funds to carry out your wishes. Your Last Will and Testament
is also where you may
make specific bequests: your copy of the 1898 edition of Burke's Peerage
to your FGS Conference roommate or your old roll-top desk to your newest
granddaughter. Your wishes can now be enforced by the courts, if
If you still want to have any of your assets given to your
alma mater or a local library or anywhere else, personally contact that
agency and discuss the possibility -- right now. It won't come as a
surprise to them and
they should be able to advise you immediately of any conditions of
acceptance. If you can support those conditions, ask for a written
acknowledgment that can be placed with your will.
Some other things that you can do right now are to distribute
copies of your research among your family, friends, and, perhaps, local
or national libraries. This is simple if you have progressed to the
stage, but don't be too concerned if you haven't. Many genealogists
assemble their pedigree charts, group sheets, pertinent vital records,
selected family photographs, and other important documents in notebook
form. They write a
brief introduction, provide a table of contents, and sometimes an index
before having copies made for distribution. Afterwards, the notebook can
be kept current with a new year's letter which might include new charts
Computerized genealogical data can be distributed in the same
way on diskette. Sometimes an envelope or jacket is provided in the
notebook described above to house data disks. Another way some
researchers try to
insure the safeguarding of their electronic data is to submit it to the
LDS Ancestral File (tm) or one or more of the other commercial
collections. If you don't know how to do this, consult your local
genealogical society or Family
History Center or even the public library for instructions.
Another thing you can do right now to benefit your heirs is to
clean up your files. Eliminate unnecessary correspondence and duplicate
copies of records. Toss out all those old printouts you made in 1984 on
Apple IIe computer. Sell all the "Genealogical Helper" magazines you have
saved since 1973, because you will never open one of them again and you
know it. If you get 50 cents each for them you can have a pretty good
away all that old computer software that is taking up room on your
bookshelves -- it's probably not worth anything anyway. Label your
photographs, and diskettes too.
I find it a bit morbid, but you may wish to write your epitaph
and select your tombstone now to insure future researchers will not
encounter some of the same problems that you've had.
If you decide to follow some of these suggestions, when you do
eventually meet your ancestors they may thank you for perpetuating their
memory. They may also show you where you made some of your mistakes and
able to fill in a few of the blank spaces in your previous research.
Remember, do it now; there may be no tomorrow.

Am searching for the family of Jane BOYD from County Antrim, IRE. My
great grandmother was Jane BOYD. (I even question that a bit, as I have
found that many of my ancestors used middle names). This BOYD married
MCCLEMENTS in County Antrim. Unfortunately, that is all of the info I have

great grandmother Jane MCCLEMENTS (daughter of BOYD-MCCLEMENTS) was born in
1841 and died 3 September 1919. She was married to Patrick MCGRATH
(1826-23 September 1911). They are buried in St. Patrick's churchyard,

book they put forth the theory (well substantiated) that a Capt. James William
Boyd (who resembled J.W. Booth) was killed instead of Booth, and Booth lived
out his life in Europe.

I was contacted by:
Patricia Scott <legacy(a)comnett.net>
She has the death certificate of:
> Death Certificate of Hannah Boyd
> Hannah Boyd b. ca 1857 MO, d. 1922 Aurora, Lawrence Co. MO; m. M. F. Scott
> Father: J.W. Boyd TN; Mother Elizabeth Deal? TN.
This was not part of her family nor is a part of mine. Does anyone on the lists have any interest in the above certificate? If no one responds, I told Pat that I would reimburse her cost for ordering it and place it in my "other Boyds" file.

SPECIAL APPEAL FOR SCOTTISH JOBS
The following is an impassioned plea by Winnie Ewing, the Euro-MP for the
Highlands and Islands and President of the SNP, to the US Secretary of State,
Madeleine Albright, and US Trade Representative Charlene Barshefsky, asking
them to reconsider the threat of 100% tariffs on cashmere and shortbread which
is produced in the Moray area of her constituency. The US tariffs are in
response to what is seen as unfair competition for Central American bananas
against Caribbean bananas.
If other recipients wish to lobby them, or their own Senators and Congress
Representatives we would be extremeley grateful for the sake of the employees
at Johnstons Cashmere Mill in Elgin and Walkers Shortbread in Aberlour.

WINNIE TAKES FIGHT FOR MORAY JOBS TO AMERICA
Dr Winifred Ewing, the Euro-MP for the Highlands and Islands and President of
the SNP, has written to the US Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright, and US
Trade Representative Charlene Barshefsky, asking them to reconsider the threat
of 100% tariffs on cashmere and shortbread which is produced in the Moray area
of her constituency. The US tariffs are in response to what is seen as unfair
competition for Central American bananas against Caribbean bananas. In an
impassioned letter to them both she said:
"Trade restrictions on EU states will hit industries in my area particularly
hard. The Highlands and Islands are a sparsely populated area larger than
Denmark or Belgium with 90 islands.
"Distance costs already have an impact on business in my constituency. We have
only 8 people per square kilometre making it one of the most fragile areas in
"However industries do thrive and have to carve out niche export markets. That
is why two industries, Johnstons Mill in Elgin and Walkers Shortbread in
Aberlour are great local success stories. The US tariffs would thus hit one of
the most economically fragile areas in Europe.
"The US tariffs are all the more bewildering in light of the links between the
Highlands and Islands and America. In years gone by many Highlanders and
Islanders were forcibly removed from their homes and land and escaped poverty
and persecution by emigrating to America.
"And recently pilots who fought with the US in Iraq came from bases in Moray,
down the road, literally, from Johntsons and Walkers.
"Both give employment where there is little else and all are worried and
extremely upset that America should penalise them in this way. These tariffs
will begin in March and I can only implore the US Secretary of State and US
Trade Representative to rethink their strategy. A continuation will only hurt
those who have done the US no harm from an area that has provided much to
I am hoping to connect with someone searching the same Boyd line I am.

Ireland and Scotland.
