Hi Linda,
great to hear from you again.Maybe we can meet up again this year !I have to say that I have not given the origin of the Kinghorn name much thought. I have seen the entry in Black's surnames of Scotland with Adam de Kyngorn in 1204 etc. I think we would have to find out how Kinghorn in Fife got it's name.
Our family way back in Eccles was recorded as Kingcorn ,so maybe this branch had a different root.
I like to think that perhaps they were expert farmers!
Send me an e-mail privately, as I would like to hear about your new job.
Best wishes , Eileen
