- Recently I saw a notice stating that the Peterhead Registrar's Office is
located in Arbuthnot House, Broad Street. Could anyone tell me something
about the history of the house and tha Arbuthnot family? As far as I
know, I have no connection to the family, but one of my ancestor's
children was named Mary Arbuthnot STOCKS.She was born in 1831. In the
1841 Census the family was living in Broad Street.
