    Suffix ,of Knock,in Kirkmichael, Ayrshire, Scotland 
    Gender Male 
    Died Yes, date unknown 
    • In Kirkpatrick of Closeburn (memoir) of 1858,Thomas of Knock is described as "a contemporary" of the 1st Baronet(who was created Baronet of Nova Scotia, March 26, 1685)

      In correspondence to Notes and Queries ,Saturday ,January 4,1873 Mr Gracie wrote-
      "In the year 1852-3 was I asked by William Sharpe, Esq., of Hoddam, to endeavour to trace out the connecting link of the Conheath family with the parent stem of the tree of the Kirkpatrick's of Closeburn and Mr. Sharpe gave me all the benefit of his learned brother's papers on the subject. set to work to do so. I found embedded, feet deep in the soil, the gravestone of William, last baron of Kirkmichael, Robert of Glenkiln's tombstone, and Thomas of Knocks', all in Garrel Kirkyard. By desire of my friend and relative the late Mrs. Proudfoot of Cragieburn , the then nearest descendant of the Kirkmichael family residing in that district, had the stones set up, repaired, and painted and they may be seen there to this day. The last child surviving of William of Conheath , Miss Jane Kirkpatrick, of Nithbank by Dumfries was then residing there and from her got manuscript holograph list, by William Kirkpatrick, of his children born to him by Mary Wilson and all my other information was equally valid and accurate."

      Documentation,issued by the Royal Chancery of Granada in Spain in 1797 to William Kirkpatrick y Wilson,a copy of which was kindly supplied by Leopoldo Fernández de Angulo y Gómez de las Cortinas,(4th great grandson of William Kirkpatrick y Wilson,of Malaga)verifies Thomas of Knock as the father of Robert of Glenkiln.(The original document is held in the Historical Archive of the Royal Chancery of Granada.)

      It appears the interpretation of Mr. Gracie's findings,by Alexander de La Pere Kirkpatrick,in his private family record, may be the cause of some confusion,as he appears to have missed Dr Gracie's reference to Thomas of Knock.I surmise that William Kirkpatrick,last Lord of Kirkmichael ,was the father of Thomas of Knock, who in turn was the father of Maj.George Kirkpatrick,of Knock,James Kirkpatrick,of Cullompton, and Robert Kirkpatrick of Glenkiln.(Robert of Glenkiln was also buried in Garrel Churchyard,close by his father and brother.)
