Kilmarnock’s History. “In 1764, Robert Gilmour, an agent for a mercantile firm based in Glasgow, Scotland, is thought to have been involved in giving the name of ‘Kilmarnock’ to the crossroads location using the name of Kilmarnock, Scotland, where he apparently also owned land. The earliest known record referenced to ‘Kilmarnock, Virginia,’ can be found in a deed recorded in 1778.” (Submitted on November 7, 2009.)
