    Notes 
    • George was the eldest son and had his own lands in Knock, Dumfrieshire .He was an officer in the army of William of Orange against the Jacobites

      George first travelled to Ireland in 1690, "in the ship that broke the Boom across Derry Harbour," being then nineteen years of age, and an officer.Several of his kinsfolk, the Kirkpatrick's of Larne, and the Wilson's had already settled in this country at that time.

      In 1719 George invested his proceeds from sale of the Kirkmichael lands , in the Irish linen industry, later settling his son Alexander, in Dublin.(Family records relate two of Alexander's brothers came with him) . George eventually left the army with the rank of major, and settled down at Knock.
    • (Research):It is written of his wife-

      What a good woman she must have been whose very name has been forgotten, yet, like the scent of rose leaves, a memory of her is wafted from the past, the mother of Alexander Kirkpatrick, of Drumcondra! Tradition says, he spoke of her, as an angel among women, and after nearly two centuries the loving record of her virtues lives.
