Hi Stuart,

 I see your Tiscali/TalkTalk hosted site has now expired - are you going to put the family tree info up somewhere else ?

cheers,

Hi,

some years ago my Brother Michael was corresponding with you about family gealogies in the Cabrach. He shared info with me, as he knew I was similarly interested.  My brother died in 2015, and I am trying to continue with his work.  Any help much appreciated.  I spent my childhood in Craigellachie, father's family were in the Cabrach area for some centuries. I found a message from Michael on RootsChat where he says that although we appear to be related to all the Cabrach families,  he is still mystified as to where/when the first Scotts appeared, and why.
Father's sister Annie had a story that seven Scott brothers came north to fight in a battle (it's always seven, or three, in stories, or so it seems !).
I have admired Stuart Petrie's researches, and also ThreeStones.

Hi,

 if I've got it right you're a Scott from the Milton ? (In which case we've got a shared history way back).

 I suspect you've got the same problem I do - I can push my history as far back as there are easily available family history records for and I know (from scraps of info that turn up in older manuscripts) that we were in the Cabrach many years before that but so far the full story remains out of reach.

 I keep mining for little nuggets of information - if I ever hit the motherlode I'll let you know  8)

Regards,
Neil

Hi, I have been following this thread with great interest. My ancestors were Alexander Forbes and Barbara Thomson, who married in Gartly, Cabrach 5 September 1811. They were farmers at Inverharroch from approx 1800 to 1836. Three children were born at Inverharroch, Cabrach, Banff - William Forbes 1812, Barbara Forbes 1814 and Margaret Forbes in 1817. The three children emigrate to Tasmania, Australia in 1836 to sort out a property inheritance left to them by Alexander Forbes' brother William. I do not know what happened to Alexander and Barbara who were my 3 x great-grandparents. I hope you can help. Regards, Susan

Hi,

 apologies - haven't looked at this thread in some time - there were quite a lot of Forbes in the Cabrach at one point but it's a name that seems to have disappeared. I think they may well have moved out to some of the neighbouring areas, maybe down towards Huntly but I'd need to poke around a bit more to see properly.

Regards,
Neil

Hi,

 Chapel of Garioch is a different area to the Cabrach - if you check Google Maps you'll see it's near Inverurie (and about 25 miles from the Cabrach).

 Don't know specifically about your ancestors but it's a bit of a stretch maybe to link the two without more to go on.

Regards,
