Subject: [Peterhead] Arbuthnots
> For ALL : Betty Miles has brought up a good point. For those that are
interested, the Peterhead Registrar has moved from King Street to Arbuthnot
House at the bottom end of Broad Street.
> For Betty Miles
> There is, in fact, a very good Arbuthnot web site
(www.arbuthnot.freeserve.co.uk) which has a great deal of genealogical
detail. I think you would find it very interesting.
> The Arbuthnots were significant land owners around Peterhead
and have played a big part in the town's history. It sounds like there is a
good possibility that you are connected to the same Arbuthnots, because most
of them were inter-related.
> I'm not sure exactly when Arbuthnot House was built (and by
whom), possibly some of our other subscribers would know ? In more recent
times the house has been used as local council offices and headquarters,
hence the re-location of the Registrar there.
