The chronicles of the Fives family reach back into Scottish history to an ancient tribe known as the Picts. The ancestors of the Fives family lived in the barony of Fyvie in the county of Aberdeen. The surname Fives belongs to the category of habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Fives Early Origins



The surname Fives 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 early times, some say long before the Norman Conquest in 1066 A.D. Fyvie is a village on the River Ytham, and the castle is one of the great tower houses of north eastern Scotland.

The Great Migration



The crossing to North America did not seem so great in comparison with the hardships many Scots endured at home. It was long, expensive, and cramped, but also rewarding. North America offered land and the chance for settlers to prove themselves in a new place. And many did prove themselves as they fought to forge a new nation in the American War of Independence. The ancestors of those Scots can now experience much of their once-lost heritage through the Clan societies and highland games that have sprung up across North America in the last century. A search of immigration and passenger lists revealed many important, early immigrants to North America bearing the name of Fives: David Fivey who settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1798.
