    Joan's Notes It appears that this man is related to Sir Robert KER, who became the first Duke of Roxburgh, since he was a witness at the christening of the last child of Andro K. and Gryzall HAY and others of the apparently more prominent KERS were witnesses at the christenings of some of the other KER children.

    "The Kers of Cessford Castle....their chief is Duke of Roxburgh...and lives in Floors Castle, Kelso. "The Ker clan was divided into two rival groups (constantly warring with one another): Those of Cessford and those of Ferniehirst Castle near Jedburgh".

    Those of Cessford spelt their surname Ker and those of Ferniehirst were KERR The highland version of the name is KIER.

    The name was derived from the Gaelic "cearr" = left or awkward They are said to be a traditionally left handed race!!

    The Ker blood must have been sufficiently diluted by the time it reached the 20th century to ensure that most of the Houliston descendants I know are right handed.  [1
