IT is now loads of years in the past considering that a few of my kin, either in Australia and at domestic, expressed a wish to understand whatever of the background of our ancestors. based on this hope, my overdue father bought a replica of the MS. pedigree of the Cairnes family members within the place of work of the Ulster King of fingers, of which he provided numerous transcripts to contributors of the Cairnes family members and others interested.

A perusal of this rfile whetted the urge for food of a few of the recipients for additional info. As i've got inherited either from my father and from my mother's father, a love and veneration for issues historical, I gladly volunteered to endeavour to explain whatever of the historical past of the individuals whose mere names seemed within the Ulster place of work Pedigree. My unique goal used to be in basic terms to jot down a brief memoir of the Irish relations of Cairnes, yet so engrossing did the topic turn into to me, that, having pretty much exhausted the Irish relations, i started inquiries as to its progenitors, the Scottish relatives. One discovery ended in one other, and my unique goal to put in writing a memoir of the Irish department progressively constructed into an attempt to write down a background of the total kinfolk. i've got spared no pains to make my paintings as whole as attainable. Few will think the quantity of labour this has entailed. it's been, even supposing continuously a excitement to me, an unlimited venture. this is why nearly the complete booklet has needed to be compiled firstly hand from unique resources. real, the Ulster workplace Pedigree to which i've got referred shaped a basis for a small component to the booklet, yet on conscientiously interpreting outdated files, kin papers, &c., i discovered this to include a number of error, and for that reason to be unreliable. With this exception the historical past of the relatives as chronicled in those pages is the results of unique study. i've got deemed it top in all circumstances to offer my professionals in footnotes. those, will probably be noted,

are normally from unique documents, or from demonstrated assets. accordingly i will position the amount within the arms of the subscribers with the assumption that it'll be came upon trustworthy as a piece of reference. while, i'm fairly wide awake that the ebook has many defects. i will in simple terms crave my readers' forgiveness for those and plead that i've got performed my top, and that it truly is my first try at writing a book.

It might be acknowledged via a few critics. " who're those Cairneses or what have they performed to warrant their relations historical past being written ?" I admit they've got no declare to be integrated one of the larger noble households of those kingdoms; but i believe that anybody who reads those pages will recognize that they comprise the historical past of a noble relations. within the 600 years lined by means of this paintings the relations has provided many sought after and necessary contributors to the nation, the Church, the military and the Bar. It has produced none yet stable electorate, even if of excessive or low measure. within the many hundred books, public documents and personal records i've got perused within the practise of my ebook, i haven't came upon the identify of Cairnes sullied via unworthy or dishonourable conduct.

In this age, while it's changing into trendy in a few quarters to fake to despise noble and old lineage, it's a excitement to discover even this type of radical reformer because the past due Mr. Gladstone expressing his sympathy with those that venerate the reminiscence in their forebears, within the following words—"There is not any better folly circulating upon the earth at this second, or at the other time, than the disposition to undervalue the prior, and to wreck these hyperlinks which unite humans of the current day with the generations that experience handed awav and feature been referred to as to their account."'
