    Notes 
    • Written by John Kennedy (son) in 1849:
      Attended the College of Edinburgh.
      "My father was a very delicate man and subject to low spirits, which were increased by seeing so large a family dependent upon him, and the very slender means he had for supporting them. This, with a tendency to consumption, soon undermined his health, and he died early, (49) leaving us all very young and far distant from the parish school, which was the cause of all our short comings in the way of education."
