"AFFLECK. This surname is of twofold origin:
(1) from the barony of Auchinleck in Ayrshire,
and (2) from Affleck in Angus. Richard of
Auchinlec was juror on an inquest held in
1263 before the sheriff of Lanark (Bain, i,
2677). Nicholas of Haghenlek mentioned in
1292 is probably Nicol de Achithelege of the
county of Are who rendered homage in 1296
(Bain, n, p. 150, 206). Patrick de Aghleke
of Lanarkshire who also rendered homage in
1296 appears again as Patrick de Achenlek,
juror on inquest at Lanark in 1303, and is
probably the Patrick de Auuynlec who
witnessed resignation of the lands of Grenryg
c. 1311 (Bain, n, p. 206, 372; Keko, 195).
In 1370 the lands of 1e Greynryg et de le
Tathys' were resigned to Kelso Abbey by Adam
de Aghynlek (Kelso, 514). Thomas of
Awqwhynleke in 1436 witnessed a charter of
lands in Peeblesshire (OPS., i, p. 521), Adam
Auchinlek had a safe conduct to travel in
England in 1451, Andrew Athelek and James
Athelek of Scotland petitioned for safe conducts
in 1464 (Bain, rv, 1232, 1343), and in 1486
William Achlek appears as a friar preacher in
Aberdeen (REA., n, p. 300). John of Aghelek
who did homage in 1306 is the first recorded
of the Angus family of the name (Jervise,
Low Latin,p. 207-208). These Angus Afflecks were
hereditary armour bearers to the earls of
Crawford (ibid.). John Athlyk was burgess of
Inverness in 1499 (Cawdor, p. 102). Achinfleck
