Of Kings and Clans
The Conley family traditionally traces its origins to the Celts. Clan Conley traditionally resided in Meath and Ulster in Ireland. The Clan tooks its name in 380 A.D. from Conal Err Breg, founder of the tribe. While the clan had enjoyed a time of power and prestige, it was adversely affectted by the Anglo-Norman invasion of Ireland. In 1850 Patrick Cayle Connolly and his sister bridget immigrated to America and settled in Boston. Patrick later settled in Indiana. He married Josephine Alice Tucker and they were the parents of seven children. Descendants live in Indiana and other parts of the United States.
Kings and Clans
Kings and Clans questions the assumption that "clans," as traditionally defined by anthropologists and historians, are static structures that hamper political centralization. By reconstructing the history of kings and clans in Africa's Kivu Rift Valley at a time of critical social change, Newbury enlarges our understanding of social process and the growth of state power in Africa.

Sparta s Kings
In ancient Greece, Sparta was unique in having a dual kingship two kings from different clans, the Agiads and the Eurypontids, reigning simultaneously. The institution was already well-developed by the 8th century BC, when Theopompos of the Eurypontid clan emerges as the first recorded Spartan king. At least fifty-seven men held office as Spartan king between Theopompos and the Agiad Kleomenes III who died in 222 BC. For almost all this period the Spartan kingship was primarily a military office, and thus the kings embody much of the military history of Sparta. Wherever Spartas main battles took place, there the kings were. Naturally, the character of the particular king would often determine the outcome of a battle or campaign. Leonidas I at Thermopylai was one example. At the other end of the scale the young and unwar-like Pleistoanax twice declined an encounter with the Athenians when sent against that city. John Carr offers a chronological account of the kings and their accomplishments (or lack thereof), from the founding Herakleidai clan to Kleomenes III and his successor, the dictator Nabis, and the Roman conquest in the middle of the 2nd century BC. The book is not intended to be a complete history of Sparta. It will be a human interest and war story, focusing attention on the kings personal qualities as well as their (or their generals) military accomplishments and, where applicable, their politics as well.
Guardian Angel the Book is like an Odyssey; a journey that questions and challenges the ethos of man through the ages; especially in East Africa, irrespective of time, site or circumstance. The author has consistently refused to veer from this contention; however unpalatable some of the home-truths that surfaces along the way; for this is not a fictional novel, but the living experiences of a suffering people through time. Many of the characters he faced in his battle for survival, were men that had no good reason to stray from the honourable path to Independence, and the true freedoms of their people. The Manifestos were believable and opportunities to implement them in their entirety were not denied them. They even enjoyed hero status as they were the first; they were the undisputed bearers of the flags of freedom. But sadly, they and they alone must chose to betray this goodwill; they and they alone must have succumbed to the ills of power. Guardian Angel - The Book, so aptly lays bare their hypocrisy and betrayal, while confirming the bounteous beauty of life

Clan King and Covenant
Clan, King and Covenant explores the turbulent history of the Highlands during the seventeenth century. The signing of the National Covenant in 1638 first challenged the powers of Charles I in Scotland, but it was only when Alisdair MacDonald joined Montrose in raising the Royalist clans that the country erupted into civil war. Central to the conflict was the ancient enmity between the MacDonalds and the Campbells, Earls of Argyll, as clan Donald attempted to reclaim their ancestral lands in Argyll. There followed a whirlwind year of spectacular victories for Montrose in the name of the King as the Highland clans emerged upon the national stage, before his campaign subsided into eventual defeat. However it was only after the Restoration of Charles II that a bitter and protracted struggle broke out between Church and Crown, after Bishops were reappointed to the national Church. Political and religious tensions mounted with the acession of James VII of Scotland (James II of England) as a Catholic king ruling over a predominantly Presbyterian people. It reached a climax in the outbreak of the Highland War, when Viscount Dundee won a devastating victory at Killiecrankie on behalf of James VII over the Presbyterian forces of Lowland Scotland, but at the cost of his own life. Subsequently the Crown imposed an uneasy peace upon the Highlands, after the cold-blooded plotting of 'murder under trust' culminated in the Glencoe Massacre. Condoned by William of Orange, few events in the blood-stained history of the Highland clans have quite the dreadful resonance of this act, carried out cynically as a matter of public policy.Also available by the same author: Lost Kingdoms and Feuds, Forays and Rebellions (both Edinburgh University Press)
