Hi all, my Grandmother Agnes Sinclair Mowat was from New Pitsligo and I was wondering whether there are any related Mowats still in or around the village?
Regards, Mike
I really enjoyed your website. I was born in New Pitsligo in 1925 and lived there until 1931 when left for England. I used to communicate with Agnes Urquhart and Sadie Smith - is anyone still in touch with them? I would love to reminisce!
If you would like to get in touch, I would love to hear from you at simonmessenger @ gmail.com (my grandson's email address)
Thank you,
Ruby
I am looking for information on my GGfather and GGmother.
William Urquhart Hay married Mary Ann Walker on 6/11/1882 in New Pitsligo. I think William had three sisters, Catherine, Jean and Jessie.
Thank you,

Really enjoyed your website. My grandfather, George Currie, lived at 78 Low Street. His father and mother were William and Mary Currie. On this marriage certificate, dated March 21, 1910 he is listed as a joiner journeyman and he married Catherine Ferguson Stewart, domestic servant, 29 Dorsencilly Coittage, Glenmmuick. My grandparents immigrated to Fernie British Columbia Canada after their marriage.
Love looking at this site, stumbled across it by mistake but have great fun finding all the members of the Mundie family! Including my dad Robbie and my grandparents. Welldone:)
My Aunt Lily told me about this site. As a child I spent many holidays staying with my Granny & Grandad at 124 High Street (Andrew (Dooie & Eliza Brown). I loved the picture of my Grandad making pegs in his workshop at 78 High St - I can still picture him sitting there!! Also the football team photos of my Dad, Andrew Brown from the 50's. So many happy memories have come flooding back.
My mother-in-law Jean Isabelle Tansley has recently died and I have been searching my partner Simon Neil Tansley's family tree. I have traced back to his 4th generation George Milne b abt 1825 Tyrie who married Jane Walker b 1837 Aberdeen city. They as far as I know had two children John b abt 1863 Monquhitter who married Jane Anne Harrison and Jane b abt 1868 King Edward who married Alec Horne. In the 1871 census George was a crofter at Woodhead Gomar New Pitsligo.

I myself was born in Fraserburgh in 1955 the 5th daughter of Charles Downie Ritchie and Margaret Wiseman Gatt so you can see my interest in George Milne.

John Milne and Jane Harrison stayed in New Pitsligo area and had 5 children, Jenny , Phyllis b 1888, Ethel b1891, Georgina b 1893 and John b 1898.

Can anyone help
Sarah you have a very good memory!!!! I helped Dad with the names and couldn't remember some of them!!
I loved New Pitsligo and everything about it. I lived there for 4 yrs at 10 School Place. It had beautiful views
Just been looking through snowy pictures and found my old house,135 High Street (Hillcrest) where I stayed as a kid. I loved that house. Mind you i stayed in a few houses in New Pitsligo as a kid and the best was Lambhill, now known as the Willows Animal Sanctuary.

My father William Barr (Bill) was evacuated to a peat farm during the war and I would love to trace the family who were kind enough to take him in. I used to spend some holidays on the farm in the early 60's. I thought the family name was Sturrock, but I do remember Mary the daughter married a German prisoner of war who had worked on the farm. Can anyone give me any information? By the way very well established web-site - well done.
I was looking through the old photos of New Pitsligo and came across one that had a Mr and Mrs Robertson in it, I have been trying to find out if they are my grandparents who used to live in Low Street, They would have been John Bruce Robertson and Helen Robertson (nee Sangster). I dont have any photos of them and my grandad died before i was born and my nan died when i was 6. It would be lovley to find out if anybody knew them or has any information.
Really good site! Loved seeing photos of my mam Eileen ,uncles Jake and Scottie Smith and granny and granda . Keep up the great work!
I was so happy to find your web site which is full of interesting facts.

Johnny (as he was known )lived at 11 School Street with his widowed mother Edith and brother David.His father died in India during the second world war and his name is on the War Memorial.I have many happy memories of New Pitsligo
What a great website!

My grandmother, Elspet Alexandra Bruce Stewart was brought up in New Pitsligo. I see from the Electoral Roll 1931 that her parents William and Mary Stewart (nee Bruce) and brother William James Stewart were at 25 High Street.

William and first wife Rachel (nee Kilgour) were married in NP in 1890. They lived at 24 High Street where their three children, Winnie, Mary Jane and Annabella were born.

Later, William (snr), lived with his brother, Johnny, at 21 High Street (both shepherds). They died in the late 1950s.

Their parents James (sheep dealer/shepherd) and Annie Stewart (nee Clark) lived at 33 High Street from 1863. He died at 31 High St. in 1900.

If anyone knows anything about the family I would love to hear from them at Lindastevens@btinternet.com
Shirley Lingham has left a message below about my grandparents Stanley and Lizzie Robertson. I'll leave my email address below and hopefully answer any questions she has. The website is fantastic. I stumbled across it a wee while ago and have found it really interesting. Well done.Email cadamson352@aol.com
I've just spent hours looking at your website, it is so interesting. Loved seeing my Great Granny and Granda and my Nana in the pictures. (Peggy and Andrew Smith and Valerie Coutts). I really like the guest book as well...interesting to read that buchan loon from Victoria was a pal of my great uncle Scottie Smith.
I have been in Edmonton, Canada since 1995 and miss the village and all the people. I will visit this site regularly and let all my friends and family about it.

thank you, (great site!!)
The website is good John. I have been coming to New Pitsligo for years. What you are missing in the New pitsligo today is the old surgery and i would suggest a photograph with the three orignal partners of the surgery outside the old surgery.
i love this site, keep it up is nice and good.
Just been viewing the old photographs and i was amazed by some of them. Many of them are very clear and it\'s very clear to see that the village have barely changed in the 100 years. I lived at 112 Low Street from 1989 to 1998, my mum continued to live at the same address until 2005.
very nice website.
My e-mail is annsue@optusnet.com.au

Hi, I am the wife of John Cameron who was born there along with hs twin brother and two sisters. I did visit New Pitsligo in 1997 and Peggy lived at School St. Her Daughter Pauline lives in the old school house. Will hae to go back some day as I recognized the church which Peggy took me to visit. Beautiful part of Scotland.
I came across your web site when I was Googling for information on New Pitsligo. Why, you might ask, would a person in Olathe, Kansas, USA, be interested in New Pitsligo, Scotland. Well, my great grandfather, William Taylor Kelman, immigrated from Scotland to Canada in the 1880s. I understand that he came from New Pitsligo, and his wife came from New Deer. I will be visiting Scotland in July 2009, and plan to tour that area on July 8. I have been searching through your web site, but didn\'t see any references to the Kelman name. If you have any historical pictures of the Kelman family I would certainly be interested.
