From Judy Culbertson: I visited Scotland and found both Cruggleton and Inch. Cruggleton is in "Wigtonshire" (like a county) in Southwest Scotland (on the coast). It is not too far from Newton-Stewart. The family who owns the land that the Broadfoots raised Cattle on (not sheep in those days!) were the Fishers. (this was about 15 years ago). The arch to the old castle that belonged to the feudal lord is still there. The old kirk (church) where William and Grace were married, and other family were buried, is still standing. It was built during the reign of William the Conqueror, but fell down in the late 1800's. It was rebuilt exactly as original with same stones, etc. Original baptistry still there, tombstones in the church, no electricity-- very medieval. Very small. Church owned by the Fishers (Or whomever they might have sold it to by now). They let us go in it. Awesome experience!!! Inch is just 5 miles up the road on a very rocky coast with a very small harbor. Very rough ocean was breaking on the rocks. Really made me appreciate the courage it took to sail from there to America. By the way, the church was Protestant, during a time when Catholics and Protestants were basically at war with each other in this area, moreso than with the English. Inch was also the home of St. Ninian who Christianized the Scots, and supposedly Christianized St. Patrick. There is a shrine to him there. I believe Broadfoots still live near Inch. There are several "Inch, Scotland"'s, as an "inch" is a peninsula. Too small to be on many maps, Inch is still a seaside resort. Cruggleton, however was about 5 houses when we were there. It was all rural and very beautiful, one of my most memorable experiences. Hope this helps you put your ancestors into a "setting". It did that for me!!!
