Basques and the American Indians

Started by Lady Boru Oct 24. 0 Replies

I read an article that described Basques as the Indians of Europe. I’d never thought about it that way before. Was there something to it?In the way the writer intended, maybe there was. Basques and Indians were in their places for a very long time,…Continue

Irish Kennedy: The Irish clan Kennedy takes its name from Kennedy, the nephew of High-King Brian Boru (1002-1014). The name Kennedy was also that of the father of Brian macKennedy Boru. This Kennedy was the King of Thomond (north Munster Province) and was killed by the Norsemen of Limerick in 951 A.D.

This Irish clan were the left hand of the powerful Dál gCais Tribe of Thomond, headed by Clan O’Brien. They resided in far eastern Clare, northern Limerick, and northern Tipperary in an area called Ormond.

Scottish Kennedy: Their home territory is in southwestern Scotland, in Ayrshire, where they were a power house. Originally they came from the western isles and are of Celtic-Norse stock. In the fifteenth century, one Ulric Kennedy fled Ayrshire to the highlands for refuge where he was granted protection under the Chief of Clan Cameron. From this Highland branch, Kennedys settled on the Isle of Skye. A branch also was established in northeast Scotland, at Aberdeen.

To add to the confusion, there are the Kennedys of Northern Ireland. Many Scottish Kennedys were planters in Ulster (the province of Northern Ireland), and many Scots went to Dublin and mingled with the Irish clan. Because of this confusion, the Scottish Chief of Kennedy is willing to recognize all Kennedys as part of the clan/family.

So you can see that doing critical research is needed to determine which branch of the Scottish Kennedys, or between Scot and Irish, you descend from.

What does Kennedy mean?

Most accounts of both Kennedy families claim that the name means “ugly head” or “helmet head.” This is not correct. It is derived from the name Kenneth, meaning “head of the people/clan/tribe.”

I posted a story about About Ludovic Grant--it is an interesting story:

The Seannachie of Clan Grant, Adrian Grant stated: "Although Ludovick only had the one daughter with his Cherokee wife, nevertheless she went on to be the ancestress of so many Cherokees that a huge proportion - something like a third or a half - of all Cherokees now count Ludovick Grant as one of their ancestors."
