Genealogy or Bloodline

It is supposed that a lot of the families in the original nomad
contingent were rather closely related. The Porrig Connell clan lived in a
born Ireland (Terra) (probably in Galway County), came to Landing after
the first Threadfall (with her mother) to help care for the wounded [US-DD/156].
This daughter is possibly identical with Sinead, who must have been significantly older than Sean to already have babies while Sean was still a boy [DD].

|First Interval/Second Pass|
|S'nan of Fort Weyr,
probably Fort Weyr c. 210, rider of bronze Magrith, Weyrleader of Fort
died probably during the Second Pass.
Mate: Sarai of Fort Weyr, born c. 215, rider of gold Lanath, Weyrwoman of Fort Weyr.
S'nan seemed to have inherited the conservative and unbending character of his many times great-grandfather Porrig Connell. He was a very strict and conservative Weyrleader and did not easily adapt to new ideas. As a descendant of Sean Connell and Weyrleader of Fort he thought himself the foremost among his peers, a role T'ron of Fort also assumed many Turns and Passes later. S'nan was not the oldest Weyrleader at the start of the Second Pass, G'don of High Reaches Weyr was, but I have estimated he was one of the older ones, at least aged around fifty and thus born around 210.
