Just before Christmas, I got a note from a third cousin in the US who all but pleaded with
me to write up and publish the research that I have done over the last decade respecting
the descendants of Charles Grant and Nancy Gordon, the family sometimes known as the
"Point Edward Grants". Among the many other surnames involved are Musgrave,
Moffatt, Rudderham, Munn, Ross, Woods, Boutilier, Peters, Logue, MacKay, Andrews, etc.,
etc. While I can't quite see my way to writing a book in the immediate future, I have
decided, in the short run, to do the next best thing, namely, to make the nine files of
research notes I have written up available on a blog. The first eight are already
available in hard copy at the Beaton Institute; some people have already seen preliminary
versions of the ninth (and longest) but I have incorporated new material into it up to
this morning. I would therefore invite list subscribers and other interested parties to
As always, questions, corrections and comments are most welcome.
Happy holidays, everyone!
