What specific lines of Kennedys/spelling et.al and what historical eras are you looking for? Do you have any specific given names?

Tom,
I've only been researching for a relatively short period of time, and while I have been told that Kennedy's from East Tyrone did go to America, I havn't been able to identify them as yet. What is your Tyrone connection? Do you have any names or dates from which I could investigate from this end in N Ireland?

Kim,
My apologies, I am at the very early stages of my research and while have identified a paternal line back to 1700, the first substantial information I have is in regard to my great, great grandfathers family, Robert Kennedy b1808. At this stage I have been informed that East Tryone Kennedy's emigrated to the States, but have not been able to id them yet. So at the minute I am simply attempting to gain as much information as possible on East Tyrone Kennedy's.
Having read some of your messages on the origin of the name, I am sure you are aware that the overwhelming number, if not all Ulster Kennedy's, including myself, are of Scottish extraction, who arrived in Ireland during the Plantation and subsequently prompted the whole Scotch-Irish phenomenon! While the Scottish Kennedy's, and the majority of Scottish people, originate from the island that is now known as Ireland, we are incredibly proud of our Scots ancestry, separate from and unrelated to the whole Irish gaelic thing. You will know that Ireland was formerly known as Scotia while Scotland was known as Caledonia and was inhabited by the Picts but it was because so many moved from Scotia to Caledonia that Scotland obtained is name.

Surnames: Kennedy
I am trying to trace 7 brothers that came to America, at a young age more then likely.
It is my quess this was the early 1700's no later then 1710.
There names are as follows, Edmundson, William, Archellaus, John, Robert, Thomas, and Jesse.
The following Kennedy's arrived in What was Frenchmans' Creek Union South Carolina around 1756, They were William, Archellaus, John and Robert. They were listed as part of Col. Thomas Brandons party which came from Bucks County PA.
I have no other information on them. William married Col. Brandons Sister Mary Ann Brandon.
One of my relitives is a Jesse Kennedy from Union South Carolina, he named his first born son Archellaus, it is my understanding that Scottsman named there first born after there Grandfather, this is where I hit a dead end. So I dont know if there is a connection toTyrone, but I have been lead down the path of CARNAN before, but there was no back up information then either.

Dear Colin Kennedy_1,
Could Robert Kennedy (son of Robert who married Rachel Martin of Carnan, in or before about 1833) and Mary Kirkpatrick, that you mention above, have come to New Zealand in 1861?
I have an 1861 passenger record for Robert Kennedy, 23, farm labourer, Tyrone, and Mary, 18, arriving at Lyttelton on the Royal Stuart.
I have a few further details, including that Mary's maiden surname was Kirkpatrick.
I would appreciate your input.
Thanks,
Nancy Sutherland

JACKPOT!!!

Dear Nancy in "shaky" Christchurch...sounds as though you've found a couple I'd been looking, off and on, for about 8 years! This is indeed my Great, great uncle & aunt. They got married in 1859 and then just disappeared off the face of the earth so to speak...had tried the US and Australia, but could never really get to grips with where they might have gone.

Anyway, I'd love to get a proper chat with you. You can get me at colinkennedy@mail.com

Speak soon!!!
