The Dutton pedigree of ‘1883’, ‘1923’ and ‘Yellowstone’ explained

That yellowstone The universe is ever-expanding and all-encompassing, and fans are constantly learning more about the family at its heart: the Duttons. When we were first introduced to John Dutton and his family, we immediately learned that life wasn’t always kind to them. We also learned that they weren’t always kind to one another, and that the harm they inflicted on one another was sometimes greater than anything outside them.

with 1883, we learned that the same idea was relevant in the Dutton family story from days gone by. Led by James and Margaret, the family faced the ups and downs of the journey west to find a better life for themselves and the numerous losses they met along the way. The 1923 Duttons know a thing or two about a journey, and as the family tree continues to grow, we understand the depths that Sheridan’s storytelling really goes. It tells less of a story and more of putting together characters and puzzle pieces that will captivate audiences for decades to come.

As we prepare to welcome a new family of Duttons, let’s look at what got us to where we are today and who played a role in each step of the process.

As a family tree is created, we dive into each chapter of the family history and learn who the key players are. It is important to note that there is another variant of the family tree where John Dutton II is the son of Jack Dutton. As we dive deeper 1923we await to see where that family bond really lies.

Without further ado, let’s learn more about each chapter of the Dutton family history.


The first glimpse into the Dutton family technically started with yellowstonebut the first branch of the family tree is filled with the characters we met in its prequel, 1883. Here fans were first introduced to James and Margaret Dutton, the husband and wife couple who first traveled west with their children: Elsa and John I. The couple would welcome a second son into the world, but he was not shown in the series.

James also had a sister named Claire who traveled with her brother and his family to find a better life for herself and their daughter after losing her husband Henry. Claire and Mary would have a heartbreaking journey that ultimately ended with both dying before reaching the end of their journey.

Even though we just met him 1923, James also had a brother named Jacob Dutton, and his story becomes very important in the next chapter of the family saga. In fact, as fans know, Jacob Dutton is the patriarch at the heart of the storyline and has already proven to be incredibly smart and accomplished.

In a heartbreaking turn of events, Elsa died in the final 1883 episode, and in the 1923 series premiere we learn that only one of the other children James and Margaret shared would live long enough to see the birth of her own children . Thanks to yellowstone Flashbacks, fans knew James Dutton died sometime after the family settled at Yellowstone Dutton Ranch. We saw him return home with gunshot wounds and fans believed this may have been the cause of his death, although this has never been confirmed. 1923 also revealed that Margaret died frozen in a snowdrift.

All in all, the story is told in it 1883 was heartbreaking, and to learn that only the two youngest children even survived is bittersweet.


With only one episode of 1923 So far, fans are still figuring out the ins and outs of the Dutton family ties in this prequel. So far, fans have been introduced to some of the main actors of the new series; This time, Cara and Jacob Dutton are leading the family. While they have children and a thriving family, viewers learn that Margaret and James’ sons continue to live out the Dutton family legacy alongside Cara and Jacob.

Fans see Spencer Dutton living in Africa hunting big game as he tries to escape his sanity. Caught in an endless cycle of memories and suffering from PTSD, Spencer’s life isn’t easy. He tries to outrun his circumstances at every opportunity. Of course, we also see the negative side of this way of being as Spencer is nearly attacked twice in the first episode while the second one happens in the final moments of the episode. Viewers aren’t yet sure what his fate will be, but we hope this isn’t the last time we’ve seen him.

We were also introduced to Jack Dutton and his bride-to-be, Elizabeth Strafford. They are young and in love which means emotions are running high and they are about to get married. Although they haven’t officially made it to the altar, as long as Jack makes it home safe from a cattle job, it seems like the next step. We will learn more about this in the coming episodes.

While we have yet to “meet” Emma and John Dutton, they are also an integral part of the 1923 storyline, and we anticipate her arrival to be very soon. The bonds we see in this series will bridge the gap between the duttons of 1883 and the family we follow in today’s timeline.


Yellowstone’s Family is the one viewers are most familiar with as it’s the story we’ve been delving deeper into since 2018.

John Dutton, the family patriarch, had three children with his late wife, Evelyn. The couple gave birth to Beth, Kayce and Lee, and while their family loved each other, their home wouldn’t have been described as overly “loving.” Relations were strained, especially between Beth and her mother. Of course, fans of the series know that there is another Dutton child, Jamie Dutton, who Evelyn and John adopted after learning of his tragic circumstances. Jamie’s biological father killed his mother and was promptly arrested by the authorities.

Jamie lived with the Dutton family as one of them until he found out about his adoption and biological father in season three. Jamie also learned that he had a son in season four, and he wasn’t told that information until it appeared he might be leaving his adoptive family behind. His ex-partner Christina introduced the father-son couple when Jamie visited his birth father, Garrett Randall.

Of course, when you’re all caught up yellowstone, you know that after season four Jamie decided to cut a branch off his family tree. Jamie took his father’s life, and while he blames Beth for that decision, Jamie is the one who literally pulls the trigger. The only family Jamie has now are the Duttons and he still fights them at every turn.

Viewers also know that Lee Dutton was killed in the very beginning yellowstone, which happened way before his time. Lee’s untold story is a painful burden that John carries on his shoulders every day.

John and Evelyn had another biological son, Kayce, and he continues the true legacy of the Dutton family as we know it. Kayce married Monica and they have two sons together, one of whom lived just an hour after birth and was named after his grandfather John. The other is beloved Tate Dutton, the boy who grew up with more trauma than most adults will ever face in their lifetime. Tate is smart, funny and full of charisma, and as the next generation it will be interesting to see which path he takes as he continues to grow.

Kayce appears set to give birth to another child but both are devastated by the loss of their son and we’re not sure what the future holds for the continued growth of the Dutton family tree, but we’ll all find out while the series continues.

Of course, John and Evelyn also shared a daughter – Beth Dutton, and she’s as brilliant as she is wild and fiery. She is also devoted to her father and the life he always envisioned for his family. She may not have biological children of her own (something Jamie decided for her without her knowledge), but she is married to Rip Wheeler, and they have taken in a boy who needs security and people to take care of him. Likewise, she doesn’t like being called a mother since she “never will be,” but Carter cares about Beth and she means a lot to him, too.

One of the most unspoken truths in yellowstone is that you don’t have to be related by blood to be family. The Dutton family struggles with a lot, but at the end of the day they are there for each other, and few things in the world are more important than that.
