It is really something to sing and dance about.
Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

Change the two party system
so people against something like abortion
but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

Boyd 1: Boyd of Bonshaw, Boyd of Carlung, Boyd of Kilmarnock, Boyd of Pitcon
The first Robert shown here is often identified as the progenitor of the Boyd families although that is by no means certain. He was named Boyd from his complexion, 'boidh' meaning fair. He is often shown as son of Simon, brother of Walter, 3rd Hereditary Steward of Scotland, but that appears to have been both a misidentification of that Simon and presumptuous as to Robert's relationship with that Simon.

Alexander is referred to by TSP as being the 3rd Lord but was apparently not recognised as such in his lifetime. On the basis that he was later accepted as 'de jure' Lord, we follow TSP but note that, as BE1883 does not, the numbering of the Lords is not hereafter agreed by the main sources.
