If you're an Echlin from Canada chances are you're a descendant of Thomas Echlin and Mary Early, who came over from Ireland in the 1800's and settled in Ontario around Lanark County. Check out www.genweb.org or www.cyndislist.com and go to regional/Canada/Ontario/Lanark County for lots of information. I also have a lot, too much to list here. The descendants of the Canadian Echlins migrated to Michigan, Texas,and Vancouver (that I've found so far). From my research it looks like all Echlins (and Ecklins) are related, its not a common name even in Ireland/Scotland. Mail me with any info you have and I'd be glad to include you in the family tree!
