The family ‘de Boyville’ came to Britain from the Norman town of Beauville near Caen in the invasion of 1066 and settled in various locations. In particular Wales and Cumberland. In 1124 King David granted Hugh de Morvile the lands of Cunningham and Largs. He subdivided these lands among his relatives and so the de Boyvilles received the lands of Kelburn.
