In Scottish history, few names go farther back than Boyne, whose ancestors lived among the clans of the Pictish tribe. The ancestors of the Boyne family 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.
