Eighteenth century Scottish sampler

Bridget Perkin

The sampler was passed down through the family of my maternal Grandmother, Helen Kennedy Tait, part of the Scottish Kennedy family. It is signed I or J Kenneby in 1785, which is presumably an error by the young lady who made it. It’s interesting to think that she might have been dyslexic to have made that error. Unfortunately, we haven’t been able to trace her in my family tree.
