GH01 from SOPHIA Hannah Anderson leads via the deaths at sea of the family Ancestors emigrating from Scotland to America on a ship called the Caledonia in 1682 (parents and their parents died on the ship in the Atlantic) all the way back to Lord GALFRID de Lim├ęsy (alias de Limesi) on the CU01 and AL01 lines. The Humes were a Berwickshire family. In 1682, a young man named WILLIAM Hogue, son of Sir JAMES Hogue, who was a son of GEORGE Hogue, a son of Sir JOHN Hogue, of Busselboro, Scotland, evidently in good circumstances, came to America on account of the religious persecutions under the Stuarts. The Humes were from Paisley, Scotland, father, mother, and daughter, BARBARA by name. Hume was one of two brothers, men of wealth and standing, who differed on the great questions of the day. One of the brothers conformed, the other, James, was true to the Covenant. He was imprisoned and most of his property confiscated, but through the influence of his brother was released on condition of his emigrating to America. During the long voyage a pestilence broke out in the overcrowded ship and Sir JAMES Hume. and Lady MARJORIE Hume were among the victims. BARBARA was left alone, and WILLIAM Hogue became her protector. He delivered her and her property into the hands of an uncle, a physician named Johnson, who was already in New York, and he went to Perth Amboy to make himself a home. But it was not a final farewell; an attachment had sprung up between them, and in due time he returned to make her his wife.
KQ01 Leads to the Kings and Queens of Scotland and to DR01. Following the final withdrawal of the Romans from Scotland in the 4th century, there were a number of tribal groupings whose boundaries changed over the centuries. In the north, the Picts covered the Highlands and parts of the Lowlands as far as Angus, Fife and Stirling. Although little is known of the Picts and apart from late lists of kings written in Latin, they left no written record. The earliest king who is more than just a name on a list is Bridei in the 6th century who was a son of the Welsh king Maelcon. Bridei won a victory over Gabran, the most powerful of the Scots in Dalriada which was roughly where Argyllshire is now. Bridei was the first Pictish king to show an interest in Christianity and he met St Columba at his power base near Inverness.

South of the Picts and Scots was the kingdom of Strathclyde, centred on Dumbarton Rock. To the east, in Lothian and around present day Edinburgh were the Gododdin, who spoke a form of early Welsh language. They were eventually overwhelmed by the Nothumbrians. In the south-west was the kingdom of Rheged on both sides of the Solway Firth.

KENNETH mac Alpin 0810 was the first king to unite the kingdoms of Dalriada in the west and the Picts and as such is regarded as the first king of Scotland.

Kenneth I (843-858)
Kenneth mac Alpin or Kenneth, son of Alpin, was 35th king of Dalriada. By inheritance (his grandmother was a Pict) and by conquest, he also became king of the Picts in 843 and by 858 ruled as far as the river Tweed (near the current English border). One of his daughters married the King of Strathclyde and their son became King Eochaid (below). On his death in 858, Kenneth's brother became King Donald I and his cousins later became Kings Constantine I and King Aed.

AEDH (878-879)
Another son of Kenneth I and brother of Constantine I, he was killed by Giric, a son of Donald I.

Constantine II (900-942)
Son of Aedh. After an unsuccessful invasion of Northumbria, Constantine had to submit to the Saxon King Edward the Elder, son of Alfred the Great. Constantine was also defeated in a later battle against Athelstan, Edward's son, at Brunanburgh. He renounced the throne in favour of his cousin, Malcolm I and became a monk at St Andrews. He died in 952.
