Updated November 2005:

The Kirtlan Family History encompasses the names Kyrkeland, Kirkland,Kirtland and finally Kirtlan. These name changes were as a result of clerics misspelling records as they recorded births and deaths over the centuries.

The earliest (traceable)ancestors were Glovemakers and Yeoman Farmers in 15th Century Yorkshire. (Topcliffe) In the 19th century branches of our family emigrated to Ohio and New Zealand. In the early years of the 20th century another branch of the family moved to Australia.

I list below our main ancestors - together with siblings in brackets.
