Description: Free online genealogy book based on: A history and genealogy of the families of Bayard, Houstoun of Georgia, and the descent of the Bolton family, by Joseph Gaston Baillie Bulloch. Published by J. H. Dony, Washington D.C., 1919
In presenting the history and genealogy as contained in the following pages the author does not for one moment claim to have included the issue of each line or of each marriage, nor of all those descended from each family, but rather to carry out the descent of the direct line of the family to the first American ancestor, from whence those descended can arrive to that position where they can conveniently trace their lineage from the first ancestor arriving in America.
In the forthcoming pages many who have no record or who have not become members of any patriotic bodies or who have failed to avail themselves at a critical period of the requisite information, will find much aid in being enabled to trace to some ancestor their lineage as contained herein.
It may be very difficult in time to trace the lineage of those who, living in a country filled with an admixture of various races, to prove their pure blood from American ancestors who settled in this country, unless we keep a true record.
The history and genealogy of the Houstoun family is traced from the first ancestor as given in Crawford's History of the Shire of Renfrew, to the family who settled in Georgia and the Royal lineage of the line from Sir Patrick Houstoun is proven by his marriage to the daughter of Lord Bargany who in turn married a daughter of the first Marquis of Douglas of the Angus family.
From the Houstoun family we find branches of the following lines descended, such as Johnston, McIntosh, Clinch, Sadler, Cole, Kollock, Anderson of Georgia, Waring, Molyneux, Hopkins, Demere, Sullivan, Chisholm and others.
