 I was wondering if any one could help. I am after some
 Scrimgeour tartan ribbon but can't seem to find it anywhere.
 I would love to add it to my future son's pram blanket as
 not only will it go lovely with my new pram but I want to
 have a bit of my family name always with my new son. Many

 Does anyone have any information about Maud Scrimgeour,
 author of a book called The Don and the Dancer. It was
 published in 1907 by Thomas Nelson and sons, a copy of which
 I have just managed to purchase. It is the story of a
 Dartmoor pony. I am researching the branch of the Scrimgeour
 stockbroker family who were active in the area of Stedham,
 West Sussex. I am not sure whether author Maud Scrimgeour is
 the same person as Maud Scrimgeour, daughter of Alexander
 Scrimgeour and sister of John, Ethel and Elizabeth. I am not
 a relative but have an interest in local history and
 particularly in the philanthropic work of the Scrimgeours.

 The website is a great means to stay in contact with your
 roots and learn about other people having issues with the
 spelling of your last name. For most of my school career I
 was called scrumhalf, because it was too difficult for the
 Afrikaans population.
 Just a general inquiry; do all Scrimgeour's really enjoy
 festivities, because I can't seem to get enough? Must be
 something in the blood... Really looking forward to
 attending a clan gathering!!!

Message:  Branson,Missouri The first person to change the name
 from Carron to Skrymgeour kinda set the pace for the rest
 of us. Since then the name has been spelled a number of
 different ways over the centurys. I like the fact that in
 the last 15 years the clan has accepted the Scrim. The
 first time i checked the clan home page you were spelling
 the name Skrym and now your spelling it Scrim thanks for
 the acknowledgement: The willingness of decendants to
 change the spelling of their last name has been going on
 since the first Carron did it in the 12th or 13th century.
 Like father like son....It runs in the family.

Message:  Waitakere, New Zealand
 I've recently been doing a bit of research on the
 Scrymgeour line in my family tree and have posted what
 I've found to my blog if anyone is interested:-
 I've read through all of the Skirmisher mags and this
 guestbook but didn't find much on the line I'm interested
 in apart from some contention about the birth/baptism of
 his brother Peter. The earliest I can go back to is Peter
 Scrimger of 'Hellhole/Halhole' in Perthshire, he had a son
 named James baptised at Caputh in 1765. Two generations
 later Peter's grandson, John Bisset Scrymgeour, migrated
 to New Zealand in 1860 with his wife, six sons & one
 daughter. Would love to hear from anyone connected to this
 line or if you can help me go back even further.

 Hello All!
 Like most of us I am looking for "connections". For your
 My mother's mother's (of Washington DC) middle name was
 Scrymgeour (like many of her relatives) The name Scrymgeour
 meant so much to her - it was the last request she made to
 me before she died - to make sure at least one of my
 children had the middle name of Scrymgeour. I believe we
 are main liners as her grandmother, Clara Burt, was born in
 Carisbrooke Castle on the Isle of Wight circa 1820 - her
 mother's surname was Scrymgeour and they were members of the
 Society in England. Said to be descendants of a "Sir
 Alexander Scrymgeour", they taught music to the Royal Family
 during Queen Victoria's reign. Clara had a sister, Sara
 Burt, and a brother, William Abercrombie Burt. (all were
 also related to the noted general, "Sir Ralph Abercrombie".)
 A number of relatives with the last name of "Barnes", from
 Long Island, New York are said to be descendants as well.
 Sara Scrymgeour Burt having married Polydore Barnes, a
 publisher in New York. (Now Barnes and Noble?)
 Have fun kids! Enjoy your searches...

 I've been researching our family for some time now and
 although my heritage is Henderson and Morrison, I read
 with interest some of the earlier posts on this site that
 also have similar name connections.
 My Scrimgeour connection is more "recent" when Mary
 Morrison (sister of my great grandfather John) married a
 Francis C Scrimgeour in Dundee 1919.
 I believe there was a son George Allison Scrimgeour born
 around 1920 in Tibbermore, Perth.
 Francis Scrimgeour was born 1899 in Perthshire
 (Ruthvenfield I think) to George Scrimgeour and Margaret
 Lessels (yet another name worth researching).
 Francis is noted as being a Marine Engineer and was
 divorced from Mary Morrison in 1929 (have sighted the RCE)
 and was not "heard of" again.
 I've managed to trace back this Scrimgeour line to John
 Scrimgeour (born C1790) and Margaret Kidd (born 1788) who
 were married in St Martin/Tibbermore Perthshire.
 They had, from what I can find so far, 4 children - Ann
 1820, Janet 1822, George 1824 and Robert 1826.
 I'd certainly be keen to hear from anyone that may have
 some additional information particularly regarding Francis
 (born 1899) and George (born 1920)

 My father and grandfather are also James Scrimger's. The
 spelling of our name was changed early in the 1940's from
 Scrimgeour. The family migrated to North Branch, Michigan
 from the Kitchner, Ontario, Canada about the time Michigan
 became a state. Before that, they came into the United
 States through Jametown, New York. I'm trying to trace the
 history to understand more about my "roots". I would
 appreciate any feedback that gets me there.
 Also, there is another Scrimger family in the North Branch
 area that we are unable to find the "missing link". Help
 in that area is appreciated also.

 I note that the Clan Scrymgeour Gathering 2008 is to be held
 at Balmerino Abbey. This is one of the most appropriate
 venues given that the ancient chartularies of that Abbey are
 the source of some of the earliest records to be found of
 the Scrymgeour forebears.
 In researching for my book “de Dundee – an early burgess
 family with Highland connections” , the chartularies of
 Balmerino and the neighbouring Abbey of Lindores proved very
 rewarding, yielding references to Albert de Dundee
 (1180c-1245c), Gregory de Dundee (1210c-1270c) and Master
 Ralph de Dundee in the period 1230 – 1281.
 Sir Ralph de Dundee(1260c-1307) was son to Sir Gregory le
 Long who most probably was son to Thomas de Dundee. It was
 Master Ralph who by marriage gained the lands of Glassary.
 His wife was the heiress of Gillascop MacGilchrist of
 Glassary – she was probably called Isabella, as that was the
 name of his widow in 1307. She was able to retain the
 barony of Dundee lands but the pro-English MacDougal’s, in
 1308, held the castle of Glassary for King Edward I. Their
 son John de Dundee was still a minor when his father died
 but later he was to regain Glassary and adopted the
 designation John de Glassary. In the patronymic Gaelic form
 he was Ian McMaster, his father, Ralph, having graduated a
 Master of Arts and sometime Clerk to King Alexander. John’s
 son, Gilbert de Glassary retained a large estate in and
 around Dundee in Angus and Perthshire. Gilbert made over
 most of his estate to his daughter Agnes and her husband
 between 1364 and 1374 in a series of grants. Her husband
 Alexander Scrymgeour, “bannerman to the king” thus gained
 substantial estates in the Dundee area and in Argyll and the
 Scrymgeor family derived their coat of arms from the
 Dalriadic lion of the Glassary family.
 With best wishes for the 2008 Clan gathering.

 the "Scrimgeour" name in Scotland. Do you know of a Helen
 Scrimgeour who was probably born around 1786. She married
 Thomas Aitken and I think they were from Falkirk. They
 had a son, Henry Scrimgeour Aitken born around 1806. I
 have just started looking into this line and I would
 appreciate any help you can give. Thank you very much.

Message:  Greetings everyone from Stavanger, Norway. I have a
 problem with my family tree and hope someone will be able
 to help me. I am looking for my ggg grandfather - James
 Scrymgeour. I think he was married to an Ann. My gg
 grandfather was Peter Scrymgeour who was married to Helen
 Haslam in St. Helens, Lancashire in Oct. 1849. They had
 nine children including my g grandfather Robert Bisset who
 was born around 1860. Robert Bisset immigrated to Canada
 and died in Wpg., MB, Canada 02 Feb. 1910. On the
 censuses from 1871 and 1881, Peter's birth place was
 Brabourne, Lees, Kent and his occupation was mason.
 However, on his marriage cert., his occupation is listed
 as High Baliff. I think I have placed too much value on
 the fact that my great grandfather's middle name was
 Bisset because I have found a James and Ann Bisset but
 their son, Peter, was born in Scotland. I cannot find a
 James and Ann from Brabourne. Can anyone help me?
 Robert Bisset's siblings are:
 John b. 1852
 Catherine Anne b. 1853
 Donald b. 1857
 Helen b. 1858 m.1894 T.M. Havelack
 Alexander b. 1864
 Margaret Milne b 1865 m. 1897 H. Anderton
 Charles Taylor b. 1869 m. 1897 J. Litherland

 information. I would like to learn more about the
 connection between the Scrimgeour Clan and Glaster. The
 site is really fanatastic.

 mentioned things about our ancestory, he is very proud of
 the family name, sadly now I am ready to listen (older and
 wiser)he has had a stroke and cant talk.
 I am pleased to pass this on to my own children.Its
 exciting, like coming home learning all this...

 A very interesting website! I was amazed to see the badge
 which is (obviously) exactly the same as the one on my
 heraldry plaque. I didn't realise there were quite so many
 of us about!

 I came across your sight whilst trying to find out more
 about Kilneuair Church. I'm an ex-pat Scot who used to vist
 the area frequently whilst cycling and I've always wondered
 about the history of the ruin.
 Has the Kilneuair Church Project got any further ? - I
 would love to see some work done to protect the sight.
