Title: Heatlie's in Scotland
Post by: worth on Friday 25 February 05 13:20 GMT (UK)
Does anyone have any information on the surname 'Heatlie' from Scotland. I'm doing my familytree and they originally came from the boarder areas, (Selkirk). Any information greatly received.

Hi, I have been doing research on my Heatlie ancesters but haven't traced it to the borders
as yet. Most of the info below comes from a small book called the 'Haitleys of Mellerstain',
written by Queen Victoria's surgeon about 1890. Mellerstain is an castle / estate in the borders.
I don't have access to my research at the moment, but have detailed below what I can remember from the top of my head.

The Heatlie's in Scotland came from French nobleman, called D'Porte, who were given lands in
a place called 'Hatley Park' in Cambridgeshire, by the king of england c1120 . They were persuaded by King David 1 of Scotland to settle in the borders, mainly Roxburgh, and given lands, including Mellerstain. The family name was changed to de Haitley, from the area in Cambridge, and has an official seal. Over the coming centuries they were involved in many battles including being charged for treason for the murder of Lord Darnley and the interception of Mary Queen of Scots between Edinburgh and Linlithgow. The name gradually changed to Hately, Heatlie etc and the main families can be found in Selkirk, Roxburgh, Berwick, Edinburgh and the north of england, where it is mostly spelt Heatley.

My ancesters lived in Edinburgh, Dalkeith, New Monkland (Airdrie), Broxburn, then back to Edinburgh.

Regards
Robert

I am a 7th generation Canadian Heatlie, and am tracing my history from Scotland. There are a large amount of Heatlies in Selkirkshire and Roxburghshire that I am trying to connect to. I have only found record of a few Heatlies immigrating to the US, but none to Canada yet. I would love to hear from anyone who may have any Heatlie info. I have almost 1000 people in my family tree on Ancestry.ca and want to keep finding more.

Hi Adam

I have friends in Selkirk that are Heatlies and if you go to BT phonebook on line and put in Heatlie and Selkirk it will come up with quite a list that may be of some use to you.
I know that James had a father called Tom that may have some connection to you.

If any your Heatlie friends in Selkirk have some knowledge of their family history, I'd love to hear from them. Please forward my email to any of them you think can help. I'd love to know I would be related to them! adam dot heatlie at gmail dot com.

Hi there, you mentioned a James Heatlie having a father named Tom. The last line of my family tree that I can connect to ends at a James Heatlie who was married to Agnes (Ann) Sanderson. I can't find anything out about them as they were born and married in Edinburgh and moved to Canada.

Is this the same James you are referring to?

Did you manage to get the details about the Heatlies you needed?
In 1903 the first of The Heatlie family started their involvement as Burgh Officers for the town of Selkirk and this continues to this day with James and Andrew continuing the roll.

Hi Bryansouter
I am doing my Heatlie familytree and i am a ancestor of the Burgh officers that you mentioned from selkirk. I was lucky enough to meet Andrew a few years ago and he helped me fil in a few gaps. i have photos of all the Heatlie burgh officers from 1903 onwards as it was passed from father to son, my greatgrandfather was supposed to have taken it over but he moved to England and so it was given to his brother Tommy who was Andrews father.

I am looking for information on Relatives of Andrew Heatlie, married to Eliza Aiken.  He was born in Selkirkshire in 1844 and his father was William Heatlie, married to Mary Scott.  I am a great granddaughter of William Heatlie who lived in San Francisco, California, US.
I would love to know more about them.
Sincerely,
Katie Johnson

Hi Coolmumkj
I havent got your Andrew Heatlie or Eliza Aiken in my Heatlie tree but i can give you a bit of info on them. There was two Heatlie familys in Selkirk, the 'Castle street Heatlies' which my lot come from and then there was the 'Bridge street Heatlies' which is your William Heatlie and Mary Scotts side. I dont know if there was any connection between the two but i have recently set up a 'Bridge street Heatlies' family tree on the Ancestry website to see if i can find some sort of link somewhere, living in a small town like Selkirk at that time i would think there is a link somewhere but its just finding it. Somebody sent me a picture of the Bridge street Heatlies which i still have if you would like it emailing over.

I'm looking for information on Andrew Heatlie who married Mary Turnbull in Selkirk on 9 December 1854.  Mary was my ancestor, who's father Thomas Turnbull was innkeeper of the Black Bull Inn, Selkirk.  Thomas was born in 1795 in Hobkirk and married Ann Oliver (I come from her family).  I read somewhere that Andrew and Mary emigrated to the USA in 1856.
