#68356 Alexander Kennedy

Alexander died.

Alexander is listed as being "of Clanyard" in the Old Parish Records. I would assume this implies he lived in vicinity of Castle Clanyard. This was the Kirkmaiden stronghold of the Gordons of Clanyard, the most powerful family in the area. It was a tower house, probably dating from the late 16th century. It was in ruins by 1684 and all that remains today of the castle is part of a wall.

Alexander married first #68371 «Unknown».

«Unknown» died.

This marriage is inferred from the fact that Alexander's earlier children were "lawful" while a later child with Mary Hanna was "natural" (illegitimate).
