  • Notes 

    • John W. Heard notes:

      "Tradition and some faulty genealogy research has resulted in the false notion that there was a John Heard, Earl of Tyrone. This notion has been soundly refuted. However, the tradition that his name was John crops up rather often."

      "Another family ledgend says he was knighted and was The Lord of Kinsdale. The same legend says he came to America in 1720. However, based on records, this man never came to America and was never knighted nor was he a member of royalty."

      John W. Heard has an extensive Heard web site - please see references for location.
