Blair Family Tree

Arnmore

Blairs of Kippen, Scotland

John Blair and Margaret McLuckie

Our branch of the Blair Family Tree dates back to the 1700s and originates in Kippen, Stirlingshire, Scotland. John Blair and Margaret McLuckie, my oldest "positive" ancestors, were born in 1720 in Kippen Scotland and lived the end of their lives at Hill of Arnmore, shown in the photo above. This is still a working farm.

We suspect, but can not prove that John was the son of Donald Blair and Janet McAdam. Old Parish Records of the Church of Scotland indicate that Donald and Janet had a son John, baptized on March 27, 1720 in Kippen. The same records also show that Donald and Janet also had sons Duncan and Alexander, and daughters Mary, Elizabeth, and Janet. Letters written to Robert Blair, son of John Blair and Margaret McLuckie, make reference to "uncles Duncan and Alexander and aunts Mary, Elizabeth, and Janet.

Robert Blair and Margaret McLuckie

Robert Blair, son of John Blair and Margaret McLuckie, was baptized in Kippen Scotland on Jul 15, 1753. Robert married Margaret McLuckie on Apr 17, 1784 in Greenock, Renfrew. They sailed for America a few days latter and reached Barnet Vermont in August. Robert and Margaret had 8 children; John, Andrew, Christian, Robert, Alexander, Margaret, Joseph, and Janet. According to the History of Barnet Vermont Robert died May 21, 1821 at the age of 67. Margaret died Dec 13, 1833 at the age of 83. Robert Blair was the first of my line to come to America.

Peter Blair and Elizabeth Bell

Peter Blair (my gr-gr-gr-great grandfather), son of John Blair and Margaret McLuckie, was baptized in Kippen Scotland on Apr 14, 1763. Peter married Elizabeth Bell on Jun 01, 1788 in Kippen. Peter's son, Peter, was the first of my direct ancestors to come to America.

Peter Blair and Elizabeth Rodger

Peter Blair (my gr-gr-great grandfather), son of Peter Blair and Elizabeth Bell, was baptized in Stirling Scotland on Apr 27, 1806. Peter married Elizabeth Rodger on May 29, 1835 in Lowell MA. Peter came to America around 1832.
