The purpose of this project is to document the McCulloch family from its origins in Scotland through to its many branches in Ulster, the Americas and beyond. Please get in touch if you have specific queries and i'll do my best to help.
If you are a male McCulloch or you have a brother/father/uncle McCulloch, I would encourage Y-DNA testing. I can organise a Y-DNA test kit with 30% discount off the US$169 retail price (see https://www.familytreedna.com/products/y-dna)

The name McCulloch is of Celtic origin and is found mainly in Galloway and Wigtownshire. The McCullochs first emerge into documented history with the mention of three men of that name in the Ragman Roll of 1296. They were landowners in Wigtownshire named Michael, Thomas and William who rendered homage to Edward I in that year. The first two were brothers and acted as jurors on an inquisition as to the lands in Galloway of the late Elena la Zouche. All three were constant adherents to the Balliol cause. The only other references to William show that he served in the Garrison of Berwick in 1312 and was later at Roxburgh.
