These pages are devoted to the genealogy of the Port Gordon Families (that is to say all families the 'historic' families within the community).  The links on the left represent all of the 'historic' families in the village from the time of the foundation in 1797 or shortly afterwards.  As can be seen from this list tee-names were extensively used.  The pedigrees may be downloaded or copied without restriction.  Please note that whilst we are happy for anyone to download copies of these genealogies and are always delighted to hear from anyone with Port Gordon ancestry, we do not undertake genealogical research on behalf of others.

It has been compiled using Old Parish Registers for the Parish of Rathven and the Quod Sacra Parish of Enzie as well as for the  (including those for the Roman Catholic Churches at Preshome and St Ninian's, Tynet and the Episcopal Church at Arradoul.  Extensive use has been made of the Statutory Registration of Births, Marriages and Deaths (for the Parish of Enzie) from 1855; newspaper and press reports of events at the time and the Hendry Account Book (HAB), Port Gordon’s most important nineteenth century source.  Where it has not been possible to obtain a precise date of birth, an estimation has been taken from the date of death and age (when possible) from either Death Certificates or Monumental Inscriptions (for the cemeteries at Rathven, Buckie (New), Bellie and St Ninian's, Tynet as well as others further a field).  These are generally reliable within a two year margin or error.  The material on these pages has been cross-referenced and double-checked.  Only factual and verified data is included.  However, there will, inevitably, be errors and omissions.  If you identify any, please get in touch.  No living persons are included in order to conform to the Data Protection Act.

Please note: much of this research was undertaken a number of years ago and much additional information has subsequently been gathered.  Unfortunately, it has not been possible to update all of the data on this site.
