Delgatty was first used as a surname by descendants of the Pictish people of ancient Scotland. The ancestors of the Delgatty family lived in the parish of Dalgetty in Fife and from the lands of the same name in Aberdeenshire.

Early Origins of the Delgatty family


The surname Delgatty 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 Delgatty family to the New World and Oceana


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 Delgatty: 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.
