Short History Of Scotland

A Short History of Scotland....:

"In 1390 died Robert II.  Only his youth was glorious.  The reign of his son, Robert III. (crowned August 14, 1390), was that of a weakling who let power fall into the hands of his brother, the Duke of Albany, or his son David, Duke of Rothesay... ,"

"The Highlanders had been in anarchy throughout the reign; their blood was let in the great clan duel of thirty against thirty, on the Inch of Perth, in 1396. Probably clans Cameron and Chattan were the combatants."

Abaco In The Bahamas


An excerpt from the Pannebecker message board at Rootsweb:

"Thomas Brown was not only enterprising, he was well placed with both the outgoing and incoming governors. Brown was initially awarded two hundred acres on Abaco in the Bahamas...". He would do better than that. Before his Rangers left Florida, some of them had decided to live as Brown's neighbors on Abaco."

"Near him [Captain Smith, on land called Spencer's Bight] were Captain Alexander C. Wylly, author of "The Sketch of the Siege of Savannah," Captain Donald Cameron...Conrad Pennybaker...".
