Early Origins of the Draver family
Orkney (Gaelic: Insi Orc, “Island of the wild pigs”), and Shetland where they held a family seat at Fitch in the parish of Tingwall (Dingwall.) The Viking influence of northern Scotland developed as a stepping stone to Iceland from Scandinavia. Many Viking expeditions were started from the Orkneys and the northern tip. Rollo, first Duke of Normandy, started his conquest of that part of France as an expeditionary from here. Later the name was found in Kirkwall.
