  1. Hi do you still have family in Glasgow by the name of Fullerton we could be connected.
    My ancestors John and James Fullerton left Northern Ireland and settled in Glasgow about 1880.
    Kind regards Christine.

    • Hi Christine
      My Fullerton ancestor – Mary Jane Fullerton – came from Killyman Parish, Tyrone in Northern Ireland. I believe she had a brother John b.1855, and certainly a sister Eleanor/Ellen b.1851, and maybe other siblings I don’t yet know about. I don’t have any Fullerton family still in Glasgow as far as I know. For our branch of the family, my ancestor (Mary Jane’s illegitimate son) left Glasgow in 1912 bound for Australia.
      Kind regards

  2. Hi from a Fullerton by marriage in Australia. Descended from Andrew Fullerton born 1805 Drumnacross NI. No previous family history prior to this found as yet.
    Interesting information on your site.
    Thank you

    • Hi Ann
      Thanks for touching base. I’m in Australia too. My Fullertons hailed from Killyman Parish, Tyrone a little to the south of Drumnacross. Then ended up in Glasgow. There might be a connection somewhere along the line. If your husband has done any DNA testing at any of the usual haunts let me know!

  3. Hi. I’m curious about where you learned about the Phoenicians. I was looking into the Fullerton line and couldn’t get past 1746 which was my many great grandfather James A Fullerton.

    • Hi Rebecca
      The reference to the Phoenicians in the context of the heritage of the Fullertons comes from
      Gordon W. Fullerton Jnr. in his book “The Fullertons of North America” (privately published, 1973, Hawaii). The book is referenced at the beginning of the section.
      This ambitious tome of over 300 typed pages contains family origins for many North American Fullerton (and derivative) families. If you’d like to email me via the Contact Us page with more details about your James A I’ll let you know if he is mentioned in the book. There are 3 James’ there b 1745, one of them a James Alexander.

  4. Gordon W. Fullerton Jnr. Uncle Gordon as we children were instructed to call him, visited us at our home on the (Queen Charlotte Islands) now Haida Gwaii Canada. I still have a signed 1/13/77 copy of his book: The Fullertons Of North America.

    • Thanks Allen. What a great book it is, given it was put together on a typewriter and self-published! My copy is a tattered old one I found in an online second-hand book store 🙂

  5. Hi, Great website and looking forward to reading the book sometime. I am a half 1st cousin 6 times removed of Thomas George (b.12 July 1803) and can tace that line back to about 1715. Feel free to contact me if you want more info

  6. This book is a stroke of mastery, we have spent many years researching data for this Jones family, to see it all beautifully illustrated and with personal histories, maps and photographs is truly amazing, we can’t begin to understand the effort it has taken. Not much else is done or talked about in our home, we can’t put the book down and brag about it to all who enter.

  7. I was very intrigued with the family crest. Do you know what the significance of the two head bangers on each side of the crest is. I have never seen them before on any crest.
    Also, the helmet. Do you know what the represents?

    • Hi Dave
      According to the Gordon W. Fullerton book (p3) the “savages” are “Supporters’ and he says “In Scotland, the right to “Supporters” is universally conceded to the Chiefs of the various clans. In England this is confined to a much higher rank of nobility”. As for the helmet he simply says “Just below the crest, in all cases, the helmet of the Nobility is of steel with five bars of gold. It is placed on the shield inclining to a profile.The king and prince royal the same, except 6 bars, and faces forward. The knights and barons faced forward, but had the visor thrown back and without bars.” (p3) I’ll email you the full description of the Crest from the book.
