McLuckies are mainly found in Ayrshire (around Saltcoats, Kilwinning and Kilmarnock) and in Stirlingshire (Kirkintilloch area). An extraordinary number seem to have found employment as engineers. The tree I'm connected to by my paternal great grandmother, Elizabeth Smith McLuckie, originated in Kirkintilloch. They were in Maryhill, Glasgow,until 1850, then New Kilpatrick, but settled about 1870 in the Claythorn mining community, Crow Road, near Anniesland Cross, Partick, Glasgow. They were miners in the Gartnavel Pits nearby. As such they are geographically isolated from the main groups, though there were other McLuckie's in their neighbourhood that I haven't connected. The name seems to originate from McLusky, which is also common in the same part of Ayrshire, and is Scottish rather than Irish (as sometimes supposed).

I would be interested to hear from anyone who recognises this tree. I have not done any McLuckie research outside it though, and cannot help with Ayrshire and Sirlingshire branches.
