The ancestors of the Delgattay family were part of an ancient Scottish tribe called the Picts. They lived in the parish of Dalgetty in Fife and from the lands of the same name in Aberdeenshire.

Early Origins of the Delgattay family


The surname Delgattay 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.

Migration of the Delgattay family to the New World and Oceana


In such difficult times, Ireland, Australia, and North America looked like better homes for many Scots. The trips were expensive and grueling, but also rewarding, as the colonies were havens for those unwelcome in the old country. That legacy did not die easily, though, and many were forced to fight for their freedom in the American War of Independence. The Scottish legacy has resurface in more recent times, though, through Clan societies, highland games, and other organizations. Immigration and passenger lists have shown many early immigrants bearing the old Scottish name of Delgattay: Abigail Getty arrived in New York State in 1804 with her husband James, and sons John and Robert; Alexander, Andrew, Archibald, James, John, Robert and William Getty all arrived in Philadelphia between 1840 and 1860.
