Thomas Kennedy of Ardstynchar, 1st of Bargany (a 1455)
1. Gilbert Kennedy, 2nd of Bargany
  A. Thomas Kennedy
  m. Katharine Kennedy (dau of John Kennedy, 2nd Lord)
BLG1850 (Kennedy of Bennane and Finnarts) reports that Alexander of Bargany, father of the below-mentioned Thomas of Bargany, married Katharine, sister of David, Earl of Cassillis (ie. dau of 2nd Lord, aunt of the 2nd Earl). However, TSP (Cassillis) and BP1934 (Ailsa) show her as marrying Thomas Kennedy, eldest son of Gilbert of Bargany.

  i. Alexander Kennedy of Bargany
  m. Marion Dunbar (dau of Sir John Dunbar of Mochrum)
  a. Thomas Kennedy of Bargany
  m1. Margaret Campbell (dau of Sir Hugh Campbell of Loudoun, Sheriff of Ayr) marriage confirmed in TSP (Argyll)
  (1) Thomas Kennedy of Bargany
BLG1850 ends this line with this Thomas married to Agnes Montgomery with a son Gilbert (dsp). TSP (Eglinton) confirms Thomas's marriage to Agnes (when he was "younger of Bargany") and TSP (Ochiltree) shows the marriage of a Thomas of Bargany, presumed to this Thomas's second marriage, to Isabel Stewart. The descendants have been pulled together from cross-references elsewhere. NB. This family is still being researched.
