Cunningham History

The first Cunningham is believed to have been a Flemish man named Wernibald, who took on the placename as his own when he received a grant of Kilmaurs in Cunningham, Ayrshire from Hugo de Morville, the Constable of Scotland, in 1140.

Haakon IV, King of Norway, arrived off the coast of this area to re-assert his rule over Scotland’s Isles in 1263. This led to the sea battle of Largs.
