Habkirk, Hobkirk, Hopekirk, Hopkirk, etc. newspaper articles, and data from other soursces, from 1600 into the 1900's. Our thanks goes to Glenys Bolland, a great researcher from Australia, for the time consuming work in compiling the info in this section.

The information supplied below in the newspaper links, by Glenys Bolland, will give you a great start in doing more detailed research about a potential family member. After each summary listing created by Glenys is the name of the newspaper and the publishing date of the newspaper. For a more detailed description or to view the total article, you may have to access the actual archives of the newspaper named.

Remember, as you search this resource, that spelling was not always accurate, especially in the early years, so you may wish to search all variant spellings of our name. We have found many instances where the family last name has been spelled two or three different ways over the years.

This first file is the most recent, as of 27 March 2018. It contains thousands of  items, with many new discoveries not included in the links below, organized by first name if available. It is a word document that is 339 pages long and I think it has incorporated all of the information in the links below. It is an amazing work, requiring many hundreds of hours of work by Glenys, for which we are all very grateful.

You may search the files below, but I think it would be more efficient to search the file above, ignoring the last name.
