Kilwinning in Ayrshire is where our McCallum family
settled after returning to Scotland from Ireland in the 1850s. Over
time some of the family moved to the three adjoining coastal
towns of Stevenston, Saltcoats and Ardrossan, others remained in the
Kilwinning and some moved to the Irvine area. Our great great grandparents
Thomas McCallum and his wife Margaret Boyd whose family go way back to the
1700s in Kilwinning are buried in Irvine.
