Re: Origin of the name of Kinghorn

Hi Eileen,
Here's a question for you (the Kinghorn
Family Expert!)... Have been doing some
research into the Knights Templar. As
the Templars fled to Scotland from France
in the early 1300's, many had french names.
For instance, St. Clair became Sinclair in
Scotland. Can't help but wonder about the
name "De Kyngorne" and if this is an
ancestral name for us? If so, do you think
there could be a Templar connection? Let
me know your thoughts on this. Hope you're
doing well. Take care. Linda
