Families covered: Allardice (Allardyce) of Allardice (Allardyce), Allardyce of Cushnie, Allardice of Duninald

Many early members of this family have been identified but there appears to have so far been no success in producing a reliable 'pedigree' from the names. The top section of this page should NOT be viewed as a realistic family tree but instead should be viewed as merely an attempt to list identified names in a way that might show up part of the descent BUT which risks suggesting connections/relationships which may not have been true. Please remember that, whilst it was common for an heir or successor to have been the son of a deceased, often he was a nephew or son-in-law instead. Please also remember that generations often overlapped, with some living long lives and others dying young, so that, particularly when the tradition of naming a son after his grandfather was followed, they can easily be confused.
