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.
The surname Boyne was first found in Banffshire
(Gaelic: Siorrachd Bhanbh), former Scottish county located in the northeasterly Grampian region of Scotland
, now of divided between the Council Areas of Moray and Aberdeenshire
, where they held a family seat
in the ancient thanedom of Boyne near Portsoy in that shire.
Although Medieval Scotland lacked a basic set of spelling rules, which meant that scribes recorded names according to their sounds it was not uncommon for the names of a father and son to be recorded differently. As a result, there are many spelling variations of Scottish single names. Boyne has been written Boyne, Boyn, Boynd and others.
