An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


Fyvie was first used as a surname by descendants of the Pictish people of ancient Scotland. The ancestors of the Fyvie family lived in the barony of Fyvie in the county of Aberdeen. The surname Fyvie belongs to the category of habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Fyvie Early Origins



The surname Fyvie 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



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 Fyvie:
