Kirkpatrick Base-line DNA Project

Journal by caulleys

We are encouraging any and all males with the surname KIRKPATRICK to do a Y-DNA 37 MARKER or Y-DNA 67 MARKER test. You can purchase these tests at FAMILY TREE DNA at .

We are particularly interested in finding a male Kirkpatrick to take a DNA test, who can PROVE descent from the Kirkpatricks of Closeburn, Scotland to help us establish a Kirkpatrick Base-line DNA. This will help ALL Kirkpatricks trying to connect to this core branch of the family (That individual's test fees may be covered by the group).

For more info contact Tom at kirkpatrickDNAgroup[at]

HI, I have only just begun. I would love to do the test but am female. My father was Kirkpatrick and my great grandfather Robert came from Tobemory Bay Mull Scotland. His father was also Robert. His mother was Isabella MacIntyre and unmarried. My great grandfather also had a brother Colin who was born of the same parents. He was drowned in a shipwreck off the coast of NZ.In the probation records in NZ are copies of the letters that Colin wrote to his mother Isabella in Tobemorey. These also mention Robert my great grandfather and their father Robert and where he lived and was born. As yet I have not got any further back. My great grandfather married Jane Rebecca Tricklebank. I have a brother a nephew and male cousins here in New Zealand who I am going to contact to see if they are interested in doing the test as they are male Kirkpatricks. My own father mentioned often that we were related back to Robert the Bruce and the Kirkpatrick of closeburn but I cannot prove this until I can get further back in my ancestors research.
It seems to be intimated that the father of my Great Grandfather Robert and Colin had another family but again I need to further research this. He moved to Glen Tocher in Ireland in the 1800s but I do not know if this was permanent or not. He was born in Argyll shire.
I am unsure whether this info I'll help anyone or not, but I can be contacted by email as follows
Regards Sherry Griffin (Kirkpatrick) New Zealand.
