An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016

Origins Available: Borderlands, Irish


The Kilpatrick surname is derived from one of various place names in Scotland. These place names come from the Old Norse "kirkja" which became "kirk" and means "church." Several churches were dedicated to St. Patrick, and then the place names followed from the church names.

Kilpatrick Early Origins



The surname Kilpatrick was first found in Dumfriesshire at Closeburn, a civil parish. The surname was derived from a chapel on a farm in the parish that was once dedicated to Saint Patrick. About 1 km east of Closeburn lies Closeburn Castle, a tower house that was the family seat of the Kirkpatrick family until 1783. The first record of the name is of a Sir Roger de Kirkpatrick (born c. 1280), 3rd cousin and associate of Robert the Bruce, 1st cousin of Sir William Wallace who attested a charter by one of the Bruces in the 14th century.
