Don't forget about the other spellings.
Greetings to all doing Hobkirk research in Scotland. The person you are looking for could also be a Habkirk, a Hopkirk, or a Hopekirk. Before the early to middle 1800's most of our ancesters could not read or write and the person entering the info in the parish records recorded the names as the heard them.I've seen one family with 3 different spellings in one generation. My own great great great grandfather was recorded as a Hobkirk at birth.
I am trying to accumulate info from all branches of our family. Please feel free to stop by the family website at www.hopkirk.org
