From Genforum.com post:

The Lynns of Cunningham Dist, Ayrshire, Scotland were of the Boyd clan. According to web page appalachian home.tripod.com David was David Cameron, "Laird of Loch Linnhe" in Scotland. He was born betw 1640-1645 in Scotland. He was of the Presbyterian faith and was forced to flee Scotland for Ulster, Ireland due to religious persecution. He was known as David of Lynn. He's also been called William David Lynn.

David and Unknown wife had the following children:

  • -Sarah Lynn b: Abt 1670 in Springfield Manor, Clondevaddock Parish, Barony Of Kilmacrenan, County Donegal, Ireland married Henry Patton. Died Newton Limavady,Ulster,Donegal Co, Ireland.
  • -William Lynn b: Abt 1672 in, Loch Lynn, Scotland. Married Margaret Patton.Died 1727-9 in Virginia, USA

NOTE: The following reference is incorrect! Margaret Lynn, wife of John Lewis was born in 1693, and has been identified as the daughter of William Lynn (above), and granddaughter of David Lynn (not his daughter).


  • -Margaret Lynn b: betw 1674-1680 (this date is also incorrect, Margaret was born in 1693, too late to have been David's daughter) in Kilmacrenan, Donegal. Married John Lewis. Died 1773-1775 at Bellefonte, Augusta County, Virginia, USA

There is a William Lyne in the 1654 survey of Ulster living in the parish of Clondevaddock, where the Pattons lived at Croaghan House, Tamney. I understand his father was Andrew Lynn born in Scotland c. 1620.

These references to Lines in Ayrshire include Andrew Linn who gave “sasine” of lands of Highless to the Laird of Hunterston in 1452 AD, Jhone of Leyn who witnessed a summons to court in 1495 AD, and Elizabeth (Bessie) Lyn, heiress of David Lyn, who is noted in receiving her father's estate in Kilwinning, Ayrshire, Scotland.
