I have managed to link most of the occurrences of the varuous spellings of the surname to one family that appear in the 1695 Poll Tax records for Kincardine o'Neill/ Lumphahan.
Most of the Canadian and US families bearing this surname can also be traced back to this family.
I am happy to share what information I have with anyone who finds this surname in their family tree.
Some of the information I have gathered can be viewed on my webiste:
