The lineage of the Adair family from Scotland to American begins with Robert Adair, born ca
1360 in Galloway, Scotland. He was Sheriff of Galloway in 1426 and married into the most noble house in Scotland, the house of Argyle. According to tradition, Robert Adair fought a duel with the White Knight at the town of Adair,which was located on the Desmond Estate in Limerick Co., Ireland. Robert slew his antagonist in single combat. He then sailed for Scotland under the name of Robert FitzGerald Adair, but after landing in Galloway, Scotland, discarded his patronimic designation and wrote himself "Adair".  This extensive genealogy deals with the immigrants to America, from Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Georgia and is available to members of   and includes some photographs and videos.
