    When my ancestor left home to migrate west he supposedly said "Je ne suis pas ennuyeux."

    Was he saying he wasn't boring, as in not a boring person? Or he didn't want to be bored??

    As such, I understand: I am not a boring person

    ennuyer can be embêter, contrarier

    ennuyeux can mean désagréable, gênant (not much used nowadays to describe people, but in what century did he says that? :) )

    It was in 1886.
