Have you got any famous ancestors? like ur dads dads dads dads dads dad was famous for example?

i know my great grandfather owned biggest taxi company in scotland and had a castle but also on our family tree there is Sir Joseph Noel Paton and he was a famous painter..... also along the family tree is Bonnie Prince Charlie he was pretty awesome. a definition of him is "Stuart, Charles Edward, called The Young Pretender, The Young Chevalier, and Bonnie Prince Charlie (1720-88), claimant to the British throne who led the Scottish Highland army in the Forty-five Rebellion."
he was grandson of King James II of England or somthin.

ANYWAY. i thought i'd make a thread where u can tell if you have some cool ancestors or if they were famous. they dont have to be famous they could be infamous or serial killers or something .

anything thats interesting, just no bullshit please

Who the Bahai'i faith has been around way too long for a great uncle to have created it. Is it possible you were misinformed?

"The Robertsons of Struan are unquestionably the oldest family in Scotland, being the sole remaining branch of that Royal House of Atholl which occupied the throne of Scotland during the 11th and 12th centuries."

The Gaelic Clann Dhònnchaidh claims descent from Duncan I (1034–1040), King of Scots.

He ruled Scotland from 1034, having succeeded his maternal grandfather, Máel Coluim II (1005-43), until killed by Macbeth, Mórmáer of Moray (ruled 1040-57).



There, guess my name must've come from somewhere, but close relatives, I don't know, I doubt there's anyone famous.

sweeet, killed by Macbeth. thats insane

I'll bump this thread, because I feel the need to brag about this

One of my great, great, great, great... Etc. Aunts was one of King Henry the VIIIth's wives. w00t. Can't remember which one, I've been meaning to look this up recently, but haven't... Anyways, yeah, and the entire line was an extremely high ranking family in Britain, with a castle, and land and everything...... Quite a few high up in the military, too ^^.

Nobody, as far as I know. I don't know of anybody from hitory with my surname, or my mothers maiden name (it's common enough anyway) and my knowledge of family extends to only my great grandmother on my mothers side.

The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

Just about everyone in scotland seems to claim descent from Robert the Bruce lol

My ancestors moved across from France in the 1100's and changed their name, then they owned Bury Hill in England and had clan territory near Dundee and Lothian (I assume different sides of the family though). We've got a really old family tree hung up in the house (over a hundred years old), but the quality of it is questionable because it claims I'm a descendant of William the Conqueror.
