Re: [Peterhead] SHIVAS, CHIVAS, SCHEVES, etc; REPLY
- Hello Cindy: I believe the Alexander Chivas that married my ggrandmother's
ister Elizabeth was either born in Peterhead parish or Longside parish. I
do remember the surname of his mother just vaguely, but it was none of the
names your have..
Undoubtedly, as I have said previously the Shivas of Chivas people you
mention had their family name originating centuries ago around Schievus Castle on
the Ythan River just north of Ellon Aberdeenshire, a few miles.
Good try, Jim Thomson
