The saga of the Fivie family begins among the people of the ancient tribe of the Picts. They lived in the barony of Fyvie in the county of Aberdeen. The surname Fivie belongs to the category of habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Fivie Early Origins



The surname Fivie was first found in Aberdeenshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Obar Dheathain), a historic county, and present day Council Area of Aberdeen, located in the Grampian region of northeastern Scotland, where they held a family seat from very early times, some say long before the Norman Conquest in 1066 A.D. Fyvie is a village on the River Ytham, and the castle is one of the great tower houses of north eastern Scotland.

The Great Migration



Thousands of Scots left their home country to travel to Ireland or Australia, or to cross the Atlantic for the North American colonies. The difficult crossing was an enormous hurdle, but those who survived found freedom and opportunity in ample measure. Some Scots even fought for their freedom in the American War of Independence. This century, their ancestors have become aware of the illustrious history of the Scots in North America and at home through Clan societies and other organizations. Passenger and immigration lists show many early and influential immigrants bearing the name Fivie: David Fivey who settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1798.
