Allyncone Early Origins



The surname Allyncone was first found in Dumbartonshire, where they held a family seat in the lands of Ancrum from about the 11th century.

Allyncone Spelling Variations



The variation in the spelling of Medieval names is a result of the lack of spelling rules in the English language prior to the last few hundred years. Before that time, scribes spelled according to sound, often varying the spelling of name within a single document. Allyncone has appeared as Ancram, Ancrum, Ancrumb, Anckrum, Ancromb, Allyncrum, Alncrum, Alyncrome, Allyncom and many more.

As the persecution of Clan families continued, they sailed for North America in increasing numbers. In most cases, they found the freedom and opportunity they sought. Land was often available and the American War of Independence allowed Scots an opportunity to solidify their independence from the English crown. These settlers and their ancestors went on to play essential roles in the forging of the nations of the United States and Canada. Among them: William Ancrum who settled in Charles Town [Charleston], South Carolina in 1766.
