The Dukes of Portland

If you are a Kilmarnock resident or were raised in Killie, you will be familiar with the names Portland, Bentinck, Fullarton and Scott-Ellis.  Come along and discover the origins of some of these names at our next meeting on Tuesday 17 February in Ayrshire College Kilmarnock Campus at 7.30pm in the Lecture Theatre.
One of our own members, Hugh Watson, will be giving a talk entitled, "The Gambling, The Winnings and The Dukes of Portland".

William John Arthur Charles James Cavendish-Bentinck, 6th Duke of Portland
