An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2018


The Clan from whom the Gilkisombe family descends began among the ancient Dalriadan kingdom of the west coast of Scotland. Their name comes from the Gaelic "Gille Criosd", which means "the servant of Christ".

Gilkisombe Early Origins



The surname Gilkisombe 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



Significant portions of the populations of both the United States and Canada are still made up of the ancestors of Dalriadan families. Some of those in Canada originally settled the United States, but went north as United Empire Loyalists in the American War of Independence. The late 19th and early 20th centuries saw the ancestors of many Scots on both sides of the border begin to recover their collective national heritage through Clan societies and highland games. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: Archibald and Robert Gilkeson settled in Augusta County, Virginia in 1767.
