The current generations of the Dalgetty family have inherited a surname that was first used hundreds of years ago by descendants of the ancient Scottish tribe called the Picts. The Dalgetty family lived in the parish of Dalgetty in Fife and from the lands of the same name in Aberdeenshire.

Dalgetty Early Origins



The surname Dalgetty 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 ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.
