Note: There is also a parish named Riccarton in Ayrshire, Scotland.
The Riccarton Estate was formerly owned by the Gibson-Craig family. Riccarton House was built around a 16th-century tower-house, the home of noted jurist Sir Thomas Craig (c.1538-1608). Wikipedia gives a two-generation family tree of Sir Thomas Craig. In 1823 Riccarton House was extended by the architect, William Burn (1789-1870).
