Kirkpatrick Base-line DNA Project

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]

Hugh Kirkpatrick & John Hugh Kirkpatrick of W Nottingham, Chester Co, PA

I am in the process of documenting all known descendants of Hugh Kikpatrick (b ca 1695 Ire?/Sct? - died 1768 Chester Co. PA). Hugh seems to have been the brother of a John Kirkpatrick who was born ca 1687 in either Ireland or Scotland and died in Chester Co PA in 1772. Hugh left a will naming 8 children:

Hugh Kirkpatrick. West Nottingham. Mar. 19, 1766. May 18, 1768. To son John all estate real and personal. To son David ?5. To sons Hugh and William, daughters Margaret Clinging, Hannah Barkly, Elizabeth Nisbet and Mary McConnell 20 shillings each, they having had their portion already. Executor: Son John.

There is so many descendants and so much in the way of documents, each child is their own volume. I've finished with Hannah Kirkpatrick Barclay's and John Hugh Kirkpatrick's volumes and am working on Margaret Kirkpatrick Clingan's volume at present.

This Kirkpatrick family MAY be connected to the Closeburn, Dumfries-shire, Scotland "Core" family, and if they are, we descend from medieval European Royalty.

I can be contacted directly at

I look forward to hearing from others researching this same branch of the family.
