After seeing this family presented in a very fantastical form on WT earlier today I've had a quick tidy of the several conflated lines of Scots-Irish Cunninghams who are claimed to be ancestral to the immigrants Adam and Walter Cunningham. They weren't descendants of the Earls of Glencairn nor were they a younger branch of the so-called Cunninghams of Manor Cunningham. This leaves us only with their supposed parents: Thomas Cunningham and Jeanie Ballentine of Knocknashane and/or Shankill, co. Armagh, but I see nothing even vaguely like primary evidence here. Is anyone aware of proof of the Irish parish of origin for these brothers? Otherwise I'm inclined to pare this pedigree back even further. My suspicion is that we actually have no idea where the brothers immigrated from to Virginia.
All the best,
