My ancestors originate from Scotland, bearing the name Kerr. There are many spellings
of this name, eg., Karr, Carr, Ker, Carre, etc. One of the co-founders to my site has just
returned from the Borders of Scotland. He found a Ledger Stone in the Nave of the Melrose
Abby in Melrose, Scotland that indicated:
"......dedicated to a family of Karrs from Kippilaw, Sir Henry Seton Karr,
C.M.C.D.L., of Kippilaw, Scotland lost in the wreck of the Empress of Ireland in the St.
Lawrence River, May 29, 1914...."
Anyone have more information about Sir Henry Seton Kerr, please contact the web master
