The Earl of Cassilis.

Captain Archibald Kennedy, 11th Earl of Cassilis (bef. 1736 – 30 December 1794) was a Scottish peer, the son of Archibald Kennedy, the descendant of the second son of the 3rd earl. He lived in New York City at 1 Broadway in the Kennedy mansion[1] until he was recalled to succeed to the Earldom on the death of the 10th earl, who had died without male issue.

He married (1) Katherine Schuyler, before June 1765.

He married (2) Anne Watts (sister of John Watts) and like Kennedy's first wife a descendant of the Schuyler family, on 27 April 1769. They had three children:

His great-grandsons included Sir John Gordon Kennedy K.C.M.G. (1836–1912), who became an eminent diplomat,[4] Admiral Sir William Robert Kennedy G.C.B. (1838–1916), who became Commander-in-Chief, The Nore,[5] and Gilbert George Kennedy (1844–1909) who played for the Scottish XI in the second international football match against England.[6]

He succeeded to the titles of 11th Earl of Cassilis, and 13th Lord Kennedy on 18 December 1792.
