Jenny Cameron*
A possible pedigree for Jenny Cameron*, based on records in Cheny's Racing Calendars and the American Turf Register, is given by Fairfax Harrison: "b m 1742, by Appleyard's Quiet Cuddy, son of Ld Portmore's Old Fox: 'a high bred-mare of Mr Witty's' [not otherwise identified, but possibly the dam of Witty's Grenadier, b c 1746, by Blaze (GSB, i, 205) on which hypothesis the pedigree could be extended to the taproot of the No 40 Family]" [E1:83].

Jenny Cameron's pedigree, as it appears in the American Stud Book, is based on the identification of Mr Witty's Mare as "Mr Witty's famous mare Cabbage-arse", who was confused with the Duke of Rutland's, and later the Duke of Devonshire's Miss Belvoir, whom Pick noted was frequently called "the Cabbage-arsed mare".

However, George Witty never owned Miss Belvoir, and no Jenny Cameron* is attributed to her in the General Stud Book. Miss Belvoir is shown to have produced seven foals, five of them fillies. In addition, six of Miss Belvoir's progeny, whose color was recorded, are grey, and all are sired by the bay Flying Childers, which suggests that Miss Belvoir was a grey producer.

Jenny Cameron* produced only one filly, Betty Blazella*, with an authenticated pedigree. Since she foaled colts to both Childers* and Morton's Traveller* when all three horses were in residence at the Mount Airy stud of John Tayloe II, it is possible that she also produced some daughters.

Mann Page's Jenny Cameron
There is no surviving proof that Mann Page's Jenny Cameron descends from Jenny Cameron*, although in support Fairfax Harrison notes that Mann Page was a brother-in-law, and later executor, of John Tayloe II [E1:87].
Valiant Mare
Although the American Stud Book says Valiant Mare was a daughter of Jenny Cameron*, this is without documentation, and she is more likely to have come from the Byrd stud, possibly Family A13, or Family a48.
