The Dalriadan clans of ancient Scotland spawned the ancestors of the Gilkcrisone family. Their name comes from the Gaelic "Gille Criosd", which means "the servant of Christ".

Gilkcrisone Early Origins



The surname Gilkcrisone was first found in Angus (Gaelic: Aonghas), part of the Tayside region of northeastern Scotland, and present day Council Area of Angus, formerly known as Forfar or Forfarshire, where they held a family seat some say as far back as the 12th century. The first record of the name was in Cupar-Angus in the 15th century where they held a family seat at Murthly in Atholl, in the parish of Little Dunkeld in Perthshire.

The Great Migration



Descendents of Dalriadan-Scottish families still populate many communities across North America. They are particularly common in Canada, since many went north as United Empire Loyalists at the time of the American War of Independence. Much later, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the highland games and Clan societies that now dot North America sprang up, allowing many Scots to recover their lost national heritage. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Gilkcrisone, or a variant listed above: Archibald and Robert Gilkeson settled in Augusta County, Virginia in 1767.
