The Ayr Brother Conjurers (1924-1953) was formed in Ayr, Scotland in October of 1924 by John Ramsay and John Knox.

The club met monthly with members taking turns to provide a meeting place in their homes. The first meeting was held in the home of Ramsay who served as their first president.

The Conjurers applied for affiliation to the Scottish Conjurers Association and were designated clan number three.

The membership soon grew to include John Murray, Edmund Logan, Robert Caldwell, Kenneth Fisher, William Allison, John Shearer, John Sadler, Jack Miller and Dan Gallacher. Half the members were still at school when they joined.

The club regularly presented a show entitled "Nights of Magic" at the local Y.M.C.A. hall in Ayr, with profits from the shows used to expand the club library.

The club continued until 1953.[1]
