An ancient Pictish-Scottish family was the first to use the name Fyve. It is a name for someone who lived in the barony of Fyvie in the county of Aberdeen. The surname Fyve belongs to the category of habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Fyve Early Origins



The surname Fyve 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



Scots left their country by the thousands to travel to Australia and North America. Desperate for freedom and an opportunity to fend for themselves, many paid huge fees and suffered under terrible conditions on long voyages. Still, for those who made the trip, freedom and opportunity awaited. In North America, many fought their old English oppressors in the American War of Independence. In recent years, Scottish heritage has been an increasingly important topic, as Clan societies and other organizations have renewed people's interest in their history. An examination of passenger and immigration lists shows many early settlers bearing the name of Fyve: David Fivey who settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1798.
