My father was Bert Emerson Nesbitt son of Archie Lee Nesbitt (1885 - 1947). Archie's married Mildred Francher (son: Richard Edison Nesbitt b. 1908; Richard married Elizabeth Prossier; kids: Billy, Betty and Patty; Archie's 2nd wife: Jessie Gertrude Winans (kids: Henry, Rosalie, Dorene, Archie, and Bert). Josiah Nesbitt (1855 - 1909) was Archie's father. Josiah's wife was Orpha Rebecca Robinson; their kids: George Lewis, Melvin, Irene, Doris, and of course, Archie. Josiah's parents: John Nesbitt and Jane Moffet(sp?). We believe they left Ireland for Scotland, then to the US. Their arrival date in the US is unknown. "Our" Nesbitts wandered through Illinois, Nebraska, Texas, Oklahoma, and Missouri. Somewhere we're connected to the actress Kathleen Nesbitt--but records are lost. Anyone who can help us get more family tree info would be well appreciated! Scott Nesbitt: firstname.lastname@example.org

She is supposed to be buried in Athens, TX. They had 9 children, Harriet jane, George Washington, Jhon Alis, Dora Lee, Susan Rebecca, Thomas Williams, Nora (my grandmother), Flora who is suppose to be Noras twin but I am not sure and Jim.

Hi, I'm the youngest of 5 sons born in Scarborough, N. Yorkshire. Our old Dad was Oswald Nisbet (b. 1904) in Dunfirmline. We as far as we knew were the only N.s in our seaside town. Excepting one lot of Nesbitts. We thought wenwere rare. A shock then to find a world society of (us?) you. My father had two sisters Charlotte (Lottie) and Margaret (Peggy). I think there was a set tradition on naming children in Scotland? How does the villages of Nisbet and Nesbitt fit into the scheme of things? Dads' family moved to London circa 1910. I've often wondered why as his Dad, George, was a coalminer. Early days then know doubt you will hear from me again.
Meanwhile if I can be of some assistance here in Nottingham (research?) please don't hesitate to get in touch. I'm using my brothers E address as above or write :-

Hello from Southern Illinois. I am glad I stumbled upon this site. I have learned a lot so far. I am more perplexed than ever, now I am wondering if my Nesbit side is Scotch or Irish. Oh well, still the same individual regardless.
Still, I am glad so many are coming forward, I still know little about how the Nesbit family made it to St. Louis. I am eager to learn more. However, if I come to a dead end, I recognize in the end our family was created by a loving God who made all people of all families in his image and sent Jesus Christ so that each one of us can join in the greatest family reunion of all.
And there is a reunion in St. Louis? I'd love to hear the info for that too.

I found it a pleasure to browse this site. I presently live in Birmingham, Alabama where not many Nesbitts reside. I never realized there were so many of us. I have not spent a lot of time in the past researching my heritage. However, I know the my family came to Alabama in the late 1800's from Gaffney, South Carolina. I have some family records which I would be happy to share should anyone be interested.

Any other NZ Nisbets visit this wonderful website? There's 137 of you in the NZ Telecom Whitepages - enough to start a Kiwi Klan.
My background - John NISBET & Christine (?SMITH) were in Porewa, Marton, NZ, pre-1870, with Peter, Lilias, Arthur, and others. I understand from the Edinburgh area.
Lilias Smith NISBET (I understand born in Scotland) married Percy Frederick SAMPSON (1879-1938) on 11 Apr 1906. Dad, Arthur Nisbet SAMPSON, was born 10 Nov 1908. Lilias must have died ca 1947 - I can just remember swinging on her garden gate to watch the trains go by...;)
Thanks to those who have done the hard work on the Nesbit/Nisbet sites - I've just realised the significance of a very Fred-Bear family rug, that I finally threw out a few years back - it was OUR Tartan! Aaaarrggghhh...;(
Cheers - Sam Sampson - Stewart Island - New Zealand

I married into the Nisbett family so am not a relative but my two girls are. My father-in-law was Harry Nisbett. His father was also Harry Nisbet (with one T as he was from Scotland). He was married to Emma Maia Blake. I don't have any known Nisbett relatives as my father-in-law never spoke about them. My husband died when my girls were 6 and 9 months and I would like to be able to provide them with some history of their heritage. They are now 13 and 7.

My Great Grand Father - George Nisbet came from Edinburgh - our record of his birth date is 25/09/1864 which I can't trace in any records, which prevents me from going back any further. He came to South Africa in the period of 1890 to 1896 were he met and married my Great Grand Mother and had two sons George Robert Nisbet (My Grand Father) and a second son David John Nisbet, who died before twenty years of age due to burns.
My Grand father (Gerorge Robert Nisbet) went to live in Rhodesia in 1926 and died there in 1950. He had three sons David Nisbet, my father George Allen Peter Nisbet, followed by two daughters Barbara and Stella and finally a son Cedric Nisbet.
It is some time since I last visited your site and have enjoyed it once again. I live in Kempton Park South Africa. There are other Nisbet families around Johannesburg.

My wife's maternal lineage traces to Mary Van de Water Bouse of Flushing NY, wife of John Sampson Morris. It appears that Mary's parents were Elizabeth Nesbit and her husband Casper Bouse. It also appears that Elizabeth Nesbit's parents were Mary Van de Water and her husband William Nesbit. Any confirming or disproving information will be warmly appreciated.

I am the widow of Thomas Stewart Nisbet, Jr., born in Swift Current, Sk., in l923 to Thomas Stewart Nisbet,Sr., and Jeannie Anderson. T.S.N. Sr. was born in Scotland and as a young lad was taken to Burton on Trent by his parents; there his father worked for a brewery. He emigrated to Western Canada with his brother. Later his mother, and brothers James & Hugh joined him. The family name Rintoul is an important link and I found a Jean Rintoul circa l849 who apparently was the forerunner of this name. Interesting! ! !

Is there anyone out there who has family coming from the parish of Loudon, Ayreshire, Scotland? Children of John Nisbet + Jean Rintoul, married 1849 at Hapton? Or going back farther to Robert Nisbet and Jean Patterson, married Jan 22 1811? I liked the messages sent in. But it seems that the Nisbet's have carried the admonition to go forth and multiply a little to literally!!!

John and William were sent to Australia as teenagers in the 1920s. Their father, Robert NISBET, served in the Royal Field Artillery during W.W.I and was killed in France, 23 Mar 1918. I have no information regarding the fate of their mother, Elizabeth Mill TAYLOR. I believe that the mother's family arranged for the boys to be sent to Australia, where they at one time lived or worked on a sheep station.
Any information regarding John or William, or their descendants, will be greatly appreciated.
