The noble Viking settlers who came to the rocky shores of Scotland in the Middle Ages brought with them the ancestors of the Ffoubister family. They lived in Foubister, a township in the parish of St. Andrews, Orkney. The Orkney Islands were settled by Viking raiders led by Sigurd the Stout in the 9th century, after being dispossessed of their lands in Norway by the king of Norway as he extended his kingdom.

Ffoubister Early Origins



The surname Ffoubister was first found in the Orkneys, where they held a family seat from very ancient times and gave their name to the village and township of Foubister in the parish of St. Andrews in the Orkney Islands.
