Descendants of Reverend Samuel Kennedy
First Five Generations  

   (Note: Most information contained in this report comes from excellent sources. If you find errors, omissions or corrections please e-mail me. )

Recent research in Scotland seems to verify previous research that indicates that Reverend Samuel Kennedy was born circa 1718 to John Kennedy and Elizabeth Tod *

*At the time of the Samuel's birth, the Chaplin and kinsman to the then Earl of Cassillis was a Rev. Alexander Kennedy, and we can only presume that he would have been a cousin to the earl to be referred to as a kinsman. The Rev. Alexander Kennedy was the minister of the church in Straiton, County of Ayrshire, Scotland. Straiton is a little village fairly close to Ayr itself and the seat of the Kennedy family has always been just outside the village of Maybole. Culzean Castle is also very close to Maybole and to Dunure and this was where the Rev. Samuel was thought to have been born. There is not evidence at all of this, rather the opposite as the old parish registers state that Samuel Kennedy, the lawful son of John Kennedy and Elizabeth his wife was born in the village of Straiton. From this and the fact the he is baptised in the church where the Earl’s own Chaplin is minister we can again conclude that this baby was also a kinsman and could well have been a grandson or a nephew to this chaplain! *
