Kennedy who? --FinnBjo 00:57, 29 April 2006 (UTC)

Kennedy, or rather, Cennedíg, is originally a fore name rather than a surname. The Kennedy kindred were the dominant "clan" of Carrick until the early modern period. Carrick is the portion of Galloway which Henry II of England assigned to Donnchad mac Gillai Brigti, and became a Mormaerdom/Earldom seperate from Galloway there after. - Calgacus (ΚΑΛΓΑΚΟΣ) 09:43, 29 April 2006 (UTC)

it appears to be Clan Kennedy which provided stewards for the earldom. (talk) 22:48, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

incomplete list[edit]

according to other wikipedia articles, Galloway was divided among the daughters, with the title going to John de Balliol, which merged with the crown with his son's ascension. The title does not reappear until the Douglas creation, of which Gille Ruadh is not. The heir to the Douglas creation was Margaret Douglas, Fair Maid of Galloway as far as I can tell this is the last person to use a Galloway title, till the Earls of Galloway. I have made some changes to reflect this, although further research is needed. Should it be pointed out that this does not appear to be a Lord of Parliament. (talk) 22:36, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

That is a good point. A name change may have to be considered. Thanks,   — Jason Sosa 23:43, 8 October 2012 (UTC)
After reviewing this further, Lord and Lady are interchangeable. The use of King was subjective. The heiresses were never considered, at least by the Monarchy of Scotland, as queens. Thanks,   — Jason Sosa 00:29, 9 October 2012 (UTC)
