Doug Davies, Scottish rugby player, was born in Ashkirk.

Alasdair Allan, MSP for the Western Isles, grew up in Ashkirk.

Formerly, two thirds of the parish of Ashkirk lay in Roxburghshire and one third in Selkirkshire, including an enclave of Selkirkshire just east of the village around Synton. In 1891 a Boundary Commission moved the whole parish into Selkirkshire and added to Ashkirk a detached portion of the parish of Selkirk just west of the village, which was already in Selkirkshire (Todrig).
