Lineage.— The McKekbells have long flouiishcd in co.
AjT. It is supposed Vy some that they came originally from
Ireland, possibly with Edward Bruce, and settled in Ayrshire
early in the 14th century ; whilst others assign a still earlier
date to that event, in accordance with the family tradition
handed down from sire to son, whic'' bears out that the
McKebreli^ originally came from the ^N ^tern Islands in the
train of King Robert the Bruce, when 1.^ out from the
Castle of Brodick for Turnbeiry, to fight, and, as it proved, to
overthrow the English.

The first of the name, and the most remote now on Scottish
record, Sir John Makirel, is mentioned in Froissart's Chronicles,
Vol. iii., ch. cxxvi., as having distinguished himself at the
celebrated battle of Ottebburn, 19 Aug. 138S, by wounding
and capturing Raoul de Perst (Hotspur's brother), who held
the second command in the English host. About a century
later we find that

Maetin McKereeli,, a landed proprietor in co. Ayr, was the
occupier of Hillhouse, which at that time belonged to the
Cathcart family — the McKerrells doubtless holding the pro-
perty from the then Lord Cathcart as their superior. Martin
McKerrcU had a son,

John McKebrell, also described as "in Hillhouse," who
sold under reversion to William Wallace, of Whitehouse, a
piece of land in the burgh of Ayr designated the " Stank-
acre," which passed into the possession of Janet Wallace, only
dau. of Willam Wallace, of Whitehouse, who in. Gilbert
Mc.-ilexander, and it was subsequently redeemed from the
ZIcAIcxandere by John McKerrell's son,

William McKerrell, of Hillhouse, 1st Laird, 6. ir)62; he
was bred to the law and practised in Chancery, receiving from
King James VL, by a grant under the Privy Seal, dated Aber-
deen, 23 April, 1589, a gift of the ward and non-entry of the
"Bogmedow"in the Baileiie of Kyle Stewart, shire of Ayr,
and was finally appointed Sheriff Clerk of Ayr. He acquired
the estate of Hillhouse, together with the lands of Barrassie,
Goldring (now called "Rosemount "), Keuimoch, Polsliill,
Headmark, and Langholme, all in the co. of Ayr; he was
thrice married, Ist, to Elizabath, dau. of John FuUarton, of
J)reghorn, co. Ayr, by his wife, Helen, dau. of Sir John
Chalmers, of Gadgirth, co. Ayr, and by her had issue,

W^illiam, his heir, of whom hereafter.
