Today's generation of the Boyhind family inherits a name that was first used by the Scottish tribe known as the Picts. The first family to use the name Boyhind lived in the lands of Boyne, near Portsoy in Banffshire since very early times. Translating from the Gaelic, the name means dweller by the river Boyne.

The Great Migration



Many Scottish families suffered enormous hardships and were compelled to leave their country of birth. They traveled to Ireland and Australia, but mostly to the colonies of North America, where many found the freedom and opportunity they sought. It was not without a fight, though, as many were forced to stand up and defend their freedom in the American War of Independence. The ancestors of these Scots abroad have rediscovered their heritage in the last century through the Clan societies and other organizations that have sprung up across North America. Immigration and passenger ship lists show some important early immigrants bearing the name Boyhind: Patrick Boyne who arrived in Philadelphia in 1874; Mathew Boyn arrived in Philadelphia in 1804 from Ireland.
