My Great Grandmother was Janet Smith Kirkland (Kirkland-1618) of Kilmaurs, Ayrshire, Scotland. There are several generations of Scot Kirklands in our line that you can trace using Scotlands People.
Ayrshire is in the South West corner of Scotland - which is where the Kilwinning Lodge of the Masons also is located.
Many people in that area also trace their family back to the (sic) Cunninghams, who were the "Earls" and "Lairds" of various towns in Ayr.
As I said, my Great Grandmother was a Kirkland, so I am very interested in any further research. Feel free to dig along the line and keep us informed.
