Kilkie Emigration

So far as is currently known Kilkie family members who emigrated did so to Scotland. Other destinations common to emigrants, ie England, US and Canada did not seem attractive to the small number of Kilkies who moved.

Although reasons for moving to Scotland are not recorded it is likely that the two families who moved to Scotland in the 1850s and 1860s did so as emigrants from the famine and its economic consequences.

There is some evidence that there was some back and forward movement between Glasgow and Derry within Kilkie families over the period 1850 to 1910.
