Topic: Kersland


Kersland is a region of what today is called Scotland.

The territory was given its name from the Ker family. And gave rise to what is said to be the oldest line of the Ker family, known as the: Ker of Kersland.

Other spellings of this surname include: Kerr and Carr. (I've also heard of variants of these spellings existing too.)

My grandmother -- my father's mother -- is a Kerr, and her (and thus my) genealogy can be traced back to the Ker of Kersland.
