The Kyle Family Society welcomes membership from Kyles of name or blood, related names, related families and from those wishing to support our society. The Society is a not for profit corporation, all participants donate their time and money without remuneration.
There are a number of accounts as to the history of the name and it is likely that different branches have different derivations. This Society is focused on Kyles of Scots or Scots/Irish decent, most of whom probably trace their lineage back to the Kyle Districts of Ayrshire in Southwest Scotland --- often with a stay of generations in Ireland. According to local tradition in Kyle, the district name derives from the ancient King Coil, popularly known as Old King Cole.
In the case of the Kyles of Scotland/Ireland, one finds a variety of charges displayed, but one feature is common to all: a candlestick or candle. The lion refers to Scotland, and the white lion is used by the MacDowall Clan to which some Kyles are affiliated. The stag's head is used on several old Kyle arms.
