The saga of the Kilger family begins among the people of the ancient tribe of the Picts. They lived in Kilgour, which is located near Falkland in the county of Fife. The surname Kilger belongs to the category of habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Kilger Early Origins



The surname Kilger was first found in Fife, where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

The Great Migration



Thousands of Scots left their home country to travel to Ireland or Australia, or to cross the Atlantic for the North American colonies. The difficult crossing was an enormous hurdle, but those who survived found freedom and opportunity in ample measure. Some Scots even fought for their freedom in the American War of Independence. This century, their ancestors have become aware of the illustrious history of the Scots in North America and at home through Clan societies and other organizations. Passenger and immigration lists show many early and influential immigrants bearing the name Kilger: Francis Kilgore settled in Virginia in 1761; Joseph and Martha Kilgour settled with their four children settled in Barstable Massachusetts in 1822; George Kilgour arrived in San Francisco in 1850..
