An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright © 2000 - 2016


The Peblis family saga is rooted in the people of the Pictish Clan of ancient Scotland. The Peblis family lived in the town of Peebles in the county of the same name. The name is occasionally derived from residence in the lands called Peebles near St. Vigeans in the county of Angus.

Peblis Early Origins



The surname Peblis was first found in Peeblesshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd nam Płballan), former county in South-central Scotland, in the present day Scottish Borders Council Area, where they held a family seat from early times and their first records appeared on the early census rolls taken by the early Kings of Scotland to determine the rate of taxation of their subjects.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



The freedom of the North American colonies was enticing, and many Scots left to make the great crossing. It was a long and hard journey, but its reward was a place where there was more land than people and tolerance was far easier to come by. Many of these people came together to fight for a new nation in the American War of Independence, while others remained loyal to the old order as United Empire Loyalists. The ancestors of Scots in North America have recovered much of this heritage in the 20th century through Clan societies and other such organizations. A search of immigration and passenger lists revealed many important and early immigrants to North America bearing the name of Peblis: Anne, Annabella, John, Margaret, Mary and Sarah Peebbes all arrived in New York State in 1804; Hugh Peebles arrived in Nova Scotia in 1774; James Peeples settled in Philadelphia in 1869.
