The age-old tribe of the Strathclyde Britons of the Scottish/English Borderlands were the first people to use the name Rabie. It is derived from the personal name Robert, which is composed of the elements hrod, meaning famous, and berht, meaning bright.

Early Origins of the Rabie family


The surname Rabie was first found in Stirlingshire, but we must look to Aberdeen to find one of the more interesting entries, that of Beatriux and Issobell Robie (Robye) who were listed as witches in 1597 which was not that unusual of the religious conflicts of that time. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Rabie family to the New World and Oceana


The freedom, opportunity, and land of the North American colonies beckoned. There, Scots found a place where they were generally free from persecution and where they could go on to become important players in the birth of new nations. Some fought in the American War of Independence, while others went north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. The ancestors of all of these Scottish settlers have been able to recover their lost national heritage in the last century through highland games and Clan societies in North America. Among them:
