Kethcart Spelling Variations



Spelling and translation were hardly exact sciences in Medieval Scotland.

Spelling variations are thus an extremely common occurrence in Medieval Scottish names. Kethcart has been spelled Cathcart, Cathert, Kethkert, Kethkart and others.

Such hard times forced many to leave their homeland in search of opportunity across the Atlantic.
