Q&A: founders’ kin

Q: I believe I’m a descendant of the Balliols; how can I find out more about the family?

A: We have some Balliol family history and a list of sources for further reading on the Founders page. Caution: the Balliol name in the founders’ line died out in the Middle Ages, and not all Baileys are descended from the Balliols.
