I am in possession of documents tracing the decendants of Archibald Fulton born in Ayr., Scotland circa 1670 through my direct US decendant James Fulton born in Scotland in 1753 and immigrating to the Americas arriving in July 1774 to meet his brother who was already here in Bedford County PA. threw current day. It's really amazing to read about all they endured through the revolutionary war, 1812 war, civil war and such.
Dale Slocock, born Fulton
See my previous post below........ I have traced my grandmother, Elizabeth Mitchell Fulton, born in Paisley in 1893. She was a nurse at a hospital in Grays, Essex when my father was born in 1916 - don't know which hospital. My father was John Thomas Stillwell Fulton and his birth was registered in Orsett. Elizabeth married James Fraser in 1922, marriage registered in Wandsworth. There is no fathers name on my Dad's birth certificate and the name for father on his Baptism certificate is David Fulton. This name puzzles me but I do also believe Dad was illegitimate so could be a David ? Does anyone have the name Elizabeth Mitchell Fulton, born 1893, Paisley, in their ancestry. She is the person I would like to trace.
Its nice to see people that i share this great last name with. i have no idea about my family but i would love to find out more.
Hello everyone, Just reading all your comments and I live in Paisley scotland. Our family has been here since the 1600's and our business dates back to then. I always find it amazing where we all get our name from and what connection we may have.
Dale Slocock born Fulton
Hello Robert. My father John Thomas Stilwell FULTON always told us that his family came from Paisley. Evidently during WW1 his mother, Elizabeth, went to Essex for his birth.He was born 22 September 1916. His fathers name on his baptism certificate is stated as David Fulton. Dad told us that when he was about 12 years old he boarded the Carnarvon Castle on his own, to come out to South Africa to join his mother who had married a Jock Fraser. Dad told us his family were blacksmiths. I am desperately looking for any family history that may be found in Paisley or Kilbarchan. My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org
I too am looking for Fulton history, and also end up in Bedrule, Roxburough but uncertain. My desire is to find the original Coat of Arms and Tartan. Best linking information so far is that William Allexander Fulton sailed to South Africa in the 1700's. Both these names werein my family, and we are from Zimbabwe (Rhodesia). As usual any information would be well received. email@example.com

I'm Rowan Fulton and my father is scottish, called Duncan Fulton and his father was scottish called James Fulton and his father was Louis Fulton. I have a gold ring that was my great granfather Louis Fulton's and engraved on the ring it says L.F. to J.F. 1937 and it's 14 cgold. I love it. It's a man's ring and I'm female but I still love it. My sister is Tam Fulton and she lives in London and I live in Salisbury, Wiltshire. I am 35.
My Fathers Mothers maiden name was Fulton, she was from London-Derry in Northern Ireland. She only came over here to London during the war. She came from a large family, so i believe there's a few Fultons in Ireland!
My name is William Fulton my parents were both from Londonderry where I was also born but we left when I was a young child. I live in Portadown N Ireland maybe we are related. My two daugher's both live in GB stayed after completing University.
My mother's father (my grandfather) was a Fulton and his ancestory was from Ireland. He was born in the northeast US around 1870 and his father came from Ireland sometime prior to that time. Fulton was also on the registry of Ireland but probably of British origin.
