People connected to Ayrshire can be placed in the following groups.

Clans

Historical and Political people

- accommodated by the project Historic Ayrshire (Link to follow) which covers the History of Ayrshire and historical/political people. Some of these are also listed in the Famous people category.

Families with their roots in Ayrshire.

Please add the earliest head of the family to the list of Ayrshire Families on Geni below and link their profiles to the project. These should be male! Adding anyone with a Ayrshire birthplace to the project would cause the project to be a little cluttered, so please restrict this to the earliest head of family!

Famous or Notable People

Those people of note with connections to the county are listed below. Some of these connections are a little tenuous - counties like to lay claim to people of renown! Please visit Ayrshire - Famous People and add them to the listing there.

Emigrants

People from Ayrshire who went to the "New world" and were early progenitors in those countries. Where the earliest ancestor is known please add them to the list of "Ayrshire families on Geni" below if that was their roots, or to the appropriate county project.

Where the earliest known ancestor is the emigrant add them to the list below. In some cases if there is a project that covers them in detail please link the project - there is no point in duplicating the list.

Names with Bold links are to Geni profiles. Non-bold links take you to other biographical web pages.

How to add a link is explained in the attached document - Adding links to Geni profiles in projects.
