ALL Calhouns, Calhoons, Colohons, etc., are KIRKPATRICKs or KILPATRICKs (they are the same word, by the way, one meaning "church" and the other meaning "small church" and both meaning "Patrick of the -- church")- which, by word of information, describes St. Patrick of Ireland.

It was a Kilpatrick from Old Kilpatrick who received the lands of Colquhoun from the Earl of Lennox and took the name of the land as his sirname.
