The many centuries old Dalriadan-Scottish name Gilkisume comes from the Gaelic "Gille Criosd", which means "the servant of Christ".

Early Origins of the Gilkisume family


The surname Gilkisume 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.

Migration of the Gilkisume family to the New World and Oceana


Many who arrived from Scotland settled along the east coast of North America in communities that would go on to become the backbones of the young nations of the United States and Canada. In the American War of Independence, many settlers who remained loyal to England went north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. Their descendants later began to recover the lost Scottish heritage through events such as the highland games that dot North America in the summer months. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Gilkisume family emigrate to North America: Archibald and Robert Gilkeson settled in Augusta County, Virginia in 1767.
