Our family tree on this page only goes back to Niall of Nine Hostages, (or "Noigialllach" which translates to nine hostages) and his father; as Niall is the last one in this line that is relatively well documented. (the family tree of Niall inserted above goes back further) In our family records we have Niall's ancestry back to before Christ, for these individuals we have to rely on mysticism, legend, oral history, songs, poems, and a few sagas. Some of the sagas were not written until many years after the fact. This does not mean the individuals were not real, obviously a real person had to be there as they had descendants, but just that we cannot be absolutely sure of the details about them and some aspects of their life may be exaggerated. If you are interested in these ancestors, go to our family records to find out more.

As you can see there are many paths through our ancestors all of which are direct lines for us to Echu Mugmedon. This is caused by our ancestors propensety for marrying their cousins. This was outlawed by the pope, but not too well obeyed, and many of our ancestors in Europe were excommunicated for it. It is interesting that they would disregard the Pope's directive and marry their cousins, but then when they wanted a divorce they would use the fact that they were closely related as an excuse to divorce.

An attempt to show these connections and different direct lines through our ancestors was made by using links between family members in the different lines and color to help identify the individuals being linked. It is a little messy, but I do not know another way to show the paths through our ancestors.

The many paths come together with Isabel de Clare, Countess Strigoil; shown here in the yellow strip connecting the three lower panels to the upper left hand panel containing her ancestry. Three of her daughters are our Grandmothers, Maud Marshal, Marshall of England; Lady Isabella Marshal and Eva Marshal, each of which heads up one of the three lower panels.

Isabel de Clare's ancestors are shown as one path. Not because they did not marry their cousins, we can be sure they did also, but because we have so little information on them and their families.


Actually four of Isabel de Clare's daughters are our grandmothers. Joan Marshal is also our 22 Great-Grandmother. This connection was not discovered until after this family tree was written. Joan's descendants in our direct line through her did not intermarry with the descendant of her three sisters for some unknown reason and came to America very early on. Her descendant John Cheney was born in Scotland in 1605 and died in the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1666. This line descends through the Chute family to Grandpa Eugene Frederick Glover and Mom G. Belle Cook nee Glover.
