From the research records of Robert L Kirkpatrick of Richfield, MN and Frances Colter of Coulterville, IL relates that Robert Coulter and his wife, Mary Stuart Coulter and children came to the Carolina Colony when their son Robert Stuart Coulter was four years old. They had landed on the coast of South Carolina, after losing all their belongings in a ship wreck and barely escaping with their lives.They settled in Chester County, South Carolina, remaining there throughout their life.

They came from Gabinheogh, County Tyrone, Ireland (Northern Ireland). Mary Stuart is descended from the Royal Family Stuart of Scotland. Kirkpatrick states (from George Fleming Paper) that "according to several histories, the first Coulter of our family of whom we have any record was a Norman who came to Engla

Later, in the late 17th and early 18th centuries many of these Coulters migrated to North America; hence the Scotch-Irish (or Ulster Scots) Coulters. Some Scotch-Irish Coulters came later in the middle of the 19th Century.

In the 12th and 13th centuries when the lowland Scots began adopting surnames after the Norman habit of using placenames, persons from Coulter became known as "John from/of Coulter." For example, the first recorded Coulter was "Richardus de Coulter" or "Richard of Coulter," thus "Richard Coulter," in 1226. Richard Coulter was Sheriff of Lanark at the time. These Coulters from Coulter Village and/or Coulter Parish (Barony in earlier times) spread out in lowland Scotland.


About 1606 many of these Coulters went to Northern Ireland with Montgomery and Hamilton under King James 1's "plantations" of NI. Coulters were among the first to settle in NI and came primarily from the counties of Ayr and Lanark.

Coulter Village in the Parish of Coulter in Lanarkshire, Scotland.

There is up the Coulter Glen the remains of a 9th Century fort of wooden palisades and circular earthen mounds known as "Coo-Castle." "Ku-tir" evolved into "Cultir or Culter," which eventually became "Coulter." Coulter Village was named Culter until this century.

In that part of Scotland, Coulter is still pronounced with the "l" remaining silent -- "C__ter." Lambie, George and Murray discount the idea that Coulter came from the Gaelic/Celtic word "cou", meaning "back-land" or "thin shaped land", because that Celtic form is from a later language that the British Celtic and "Cu-tir" was in existence hundreds of years before the later Celtic/Gaelic language.
