[A draft Fullarton01 was released on 06.12.06, based on a web site which appears no longer to exist (www.carstairs.org.uk/carstairs/Fullerton/). Whilst the following mirrors much of what was then shown, it has been redone as from new.]

(1) Note that this page covers the family of Fullarton of Fullarton in Ayrshire. The Fullartons of Fullarton in Perthshire are covered by Fullarton3.
(2) After the first few generations, when Fowlerton or Foulterton is used, 'NisbetPlates' spells the family name throughout as 'Fullerton' but nevertheless entitles the article as 'Fullarton of that ilk'. 'Topographical Description of Ayrshire (more particularly of Cunninghame) togetheR with a Genealogical Account of the Principal Families in that Bailiwick' (George Robertson, 1820), which supports what is shown below, spells the name throughout as 'Fullarton'. BLG1952 ("Fullerton formerly of Thribergh') starts with 'Fullarton' before changing to 'Fullerton'. James Paterson, who suggests that the name probably meant 'from the town of the fowler', varies the spelling but entitles the article 'Fullartons of that ilk'. We may be inconsistent with cross-references from other families but, as shown below, drift towards 'Fullarton'.
