Single page of notes on Skene by Barbara Yates Gibbon
The entire descent of Yeats (and hence Gibbon)
from Skene (and hence the Kings of Scotland)
comes from this single page of notes
by Barbara Yates Gibbon
Although [Munro, 1897]
does show that in 1897
"William F. Gibbon, Pershore"
was known to be a "descendant of Katherine Skene and David Ædie".
It can clearly be seen that we are talking about
Sir George Skene, Knt., Provost of Aberdeen
and his niece Katharine Skene
who married David Ædie
and had issue, Barbara Ædie
who married John Leslie
and had issue, Elizabeth Leslie
who married Alexander Yeats
and had issue.
