I am in search of information on my 3X great grandfather Joseph Nesbitt, born between 1801 & 1807 in Rathfriland, Northern Ireland. Most sources show 1801, but most-likely 1807 is correct. Joseph married Jane English and they had at least 10 children all born in Rathfriland - Mary Jane (1832), David English (1836), William Thomas (1837), George (1838), James English (1841 or 1848), Agnes Elizabeth (1841), Joseph (1844), Margaret Jane (1844), and Samuel English Nesbitt (born 1856 in Durham County, Ontario, Canada - the only child not born in Northern Ireland). My 3X great grandfather Joseph Nesbitt is thought to have had several brothers also all born in Rathfriland - Richard (1796), Thomas (1800), William (1805), James (1810), and Robert Nesbitt (1811).

I am trying to find the names of my greatgrands on my mother's side. My grandmothers name was Minnie Lee Nesbitt. She was born in SC, USA around 1896 & died in Greenville, SC in 1972.I think she had 2 brothers, Dr. Charles Nesbitt. He graduated from Wofford College & became a professor there.What is confusing is that I have an envelope dating 1914 to a Dr. JD Nisbet.I know they are related. The letter was from Davidson College in NC & mailed to JD in New York. I do not know if the college was in error sp his last name or if they were correct and somehow these 2 possibly brothers had a diff sp of their last name.I also know that my mother was related to a Blanche Nesbitt Davis.According to a 1920 census Blanche was living with Charlie &his wife and I think it might have been his niece by the ages of everyone.If this sounds familiar to anyone, please email me. Maybe we can help each other out. Thanks!CR in TX

They had 9 surviving children:

John’s brother, Arthur also emigrated about 20 years after John to New Zealand and never married.
I have found Johns parents and siblings in the Scottish 1841 Census but they seemed to have vanished after that date. John is the only one I could find in the 1851 Census.

My 5th cousin, Newton Alexander Nisbet, of Wildwood, FL researched our family for 25 years before publishing his "Nisbet Narrations". I received my copy in 1957, as the 4th child of Baxter Young Nisbet, married to Juniatta Heathcock McBee, in Hugo, OK, 1916. In 1979, I traveled to Duns, Scotland and my husband photographed Nisbet House which at the time was owned by the Murdoch family. I spent hours in the library in Duns, corroborating much of "Narrations" which dates back to the 900's. We photographed the Priory of Coldingham, overlooking St. Abbs, the landing place of Thor Longus, the Viking that Newton identified as the founder of the family before it was named Nesebyte. I attempted to authenticate the Nisbet tartan at the Court of Lords of Lyons in Edinburgh, but was told that there was no Nisbet tartan. However, since Sir Robert Nisbet married Margaret Home (Hume) of Wedderburn, we were allowed to wear the Home tartan. Miraculously, I found the real Nisbet tartan in Edinburgh.

Dont forget the Naisbitt,Naisbit.Nasebitt,Nasebett,Neisbitt,Nesbitt,Nesbit.Nesbet and Nesbett......all of which can be found in the northern counties of England(Durham,Northumberland and Yorkshire)
Writer has traced his family back to 1700s in Durham county and has found at least 4 spelling variations in the same family tree.The recording of the information,deciphering handwriting,lack of reading and writing skills...all contribute to spelling variations.
It is easy to understand that there are so many branches from the Nesbit tree,beginning in Berwick 1000 ad....

I noted with interest that the 2006 gathering would be visiting Fenwick in Ayrshire. My mother is a Nisbet and her grandfather John Nisbet owned the farm (Mansheugh)in Fenwick around about 1900 to 1940. There were 3 sons Alexander ( my grandfather) David and John who all lived their lives in the Kilmarnock area. The farm dated back to 1600's and had links to the Covenanters with family tales telling off secret vaults used for illicit meetings. John Nisbet left the wife and family with the farm about 1912 and travelled to Canada and America. The details are sketchy but I'm sure a little bit of digging could reveal some more facts for anyone who is interested.

I am looking for information on Thomas Nesbitt, born 1775-1778. I have reason to beleive he is the son of Moses Nesbitt, but am not sure. His children were Andrew, Benjamin, Elizabeth, Mary, John, Josiah. Thomas lived in the McDowell County,North Carolina area. This was once Burke County and before that Rowan County, N.C..If he is the son of Moses, do you have any information as to who Moses' father was. I have also seen Moses refered to as John Moses. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you B. Tate

I am the granddaughter of Lionel and Judith Nesbitt who came from St. Kitts/Nevis and then moved to Trinidad. I know that there is a long string of family members of the Nesbitt circle but I am not aware of my connections. I do know the history of the name hence the different spelling Nesbitt/Nisbet. What I was told is that our name was firstly Nisbet but because birth registry mixed up the letters in the name we carried the name Nesbitt since the birth of my grandparents or possibly before. Nice to know of the great number of Nesbitts/Nisbets in the world but i know that there are links close by as the name is not common.

They were originally headed for Australia but decided to go Canada due to his mothers poor health.

I came across this web site after doing a search for Harry Nisbet, brother of my great great grandfather, James Nisbet. They came from Scotland through Ellis Island, but became separated during the immigration process and never heard from each other again. James Nisbet settled in Oneco, CT and worked in the granite quarries here and in several other parts of the U.S. I came across an entry dated June 15, 2001 by Selina Nisbett on your web site, ...but the email address was not active. It would be interesting if the Harry mentioned in that entry were James' long lost brother, Harry! I believe James and Harry Nisbet originated from Kilsyth, Scotland, but I will check with my Aunt, who visited their childhood home in Kilsyth(?). James was regarded highly by the family and lived into his early 90's before being killed in a quarry accident (he was still working at the time!). Thanks for any help anyone can provide!

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.

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.

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...;)

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.

I'm a great great grand daughter of Jane Nisbet born @ 20 Jul 1831 in Haddington, East Lothian, Scotland. Her parents were David Nisbet and Margaret Whitelaw. She married John PlenderLeith in Haddington on the 23 of June 1854 in the West U.P. church. They came to Canada and stayed with a Peter Nisbet born @ 1807 and his wife Jennet for a short time, then settled in Grey County, Ontario where decendants still live on the homestead farm. I would love to hear from anyone from the Nisbet Clan.

I would like some help concerning my family. My grandfather's name was John Lester Nesbitt, born around 1900 in Cobb County Ga., I believe. He married Marie Looney and had 7 children. From what I understand his father was a sheriff in or around Marietta and Roswell Ga. That is the only information I have been able to get so far since my family never speaks about the past, or if they do only in hushed tones amongst siblings. Any help would be appreciated.

From the chance entering of my family name on a search engine ('Google', if you're interested) I find that there is a society dedicated to us - amazing! Membership will follow post-haste. Born in London, England in 1959 to 'Geordie' parents, we moved back to Tyneside when I was a babe in arms. I emigrated North to the Border country in 1995 with my wife and daughters, and became a member of the council for the town of Berwick-upon-Tweed in 1999. (n.b. There is also a Councillor Jim Nesbit - though not of the same political persuasion). I am proud to bear the name of proud ancestors; and send best wishes to all members of the Clan, wherever you are.

William and his family paid taxes in 1810 in Delaware Co. New York. I have been at this GREAT SITE before and have others looking for the same people. I have a photo of two people and written on the back is "George and Annebella Nesbitt who went west in a covered wagon and settled in Cambridge, Minn. Also is the name John Miller. The Nesbitts that settled in Roses brook in Delaware Co. lived next to a Miller family. The photo was taken by S.A. Johnson and he was in the Minn. area from 1856 to 1900. So this gives a time of when this photo was taken. My grandmother always said that the Nesbitts came from England with other family members and that the other members of the family went on west. Is anyone interested in a copy of this photo, or anyone heard of Nesbitts coming from England into New York State and moving on west? Again, this is a great site for finding your roots. Dick Nesbitt

My great grandfather, James Nesbitt is originally from Scotland (place not known) and then moved on to Newcastle. He married a lady named Sarah and then they had moved on to Canada on a small homestead in Northern Saskatchewan in a town called Spiritwood. My grandfather's name is David and he was the first child born in Canada out of his siblings. I believe that one of my great grandfather's brothers also moved to Canada long after he did, they resided in a town called Radisson in Saskatchewan, Canada (possibly Edward Nesbitt). My grandfather David passed away about 15 years ago, and my family and I still reside in Saskatchewan.

My father and I were discussing family lineage, and he was trying to remember the name of his Great Grandfather (back then they only called grandparents by their last name). If we could find his name it would be soo much easier to trace our family history. We know this much:
Clark Edwin Nisbet Sr. (has eight children) is the only Son of Marvin Edwin Nisbet (and Neva Louise Norris) who is the son of Edwin Albert Nisbet, Edwin Albert was married to Berth Rahn and was one of five children, I believe, and I have always been told I am fifth generation Arizonan, but who are the other generations, who are my ancestors....no one seems to know. What is known is that we came from New york down through Georgia and then headed west and that we were NOT the Nisbet's who went to Illinois. I was hoping you could provide some answers for future generations here out west.

I think this site should keep guest book entries around for longer, or should archive them off, but they should still be available. I had some good feedback in the guest book about Robert Hogg Nisbet, the Connecticut painter, last year, but they are all gone now.
And is this site as slow for everyone else as it is for me?
Thanks, BobThe Webmaster responds:All entries made in the Guest Book since its inception are available for
viewing.The default action for the Guest Book page is to display entries for the current and preceding month only. There are, however, 3 ways to view the entries for a different period:Select a custom date range by modifying the from and to dates and clicking the Show button,
Select all entries for a specific year by clicking on the appropriate year link (e.g. 1999),
Select all entries in the guest book by clicking on the All Years link - this option may take a minute or so to complete.All 3 options are located at the top of the Guest Book page.As far as the speed of the site goes, this usually depends on your internet connection/ISP.

Elizabeth, and a half-sister in St. Catharines, Ontario. They were all living there when the Census of 1871 was taken.
In 1872, his sister married a wealthy businessman named Elijah Peckham. She moved to her husband's home in Springfield, Massachusetts.
In 1873, my grandfather came to the United States, according to the 1900
Census for Accomack County, Virginia. He did not arrive in that county
until 1882. He took up residence in the village of Hoffmans Wharf - present
day Harborton. He arrived by steamboat from Baltimore, Maryland, and began
employment in the newly erected menhaden factory as a plant engineer.
According to the marriage license when he married my grandmother in 1892,
he was a widower.
No information was forthcoming from my grandmother or her children during
their lifetimes concerning grnadfather's first marriage or the reasons for
his name change. After searching for decades for answers about his
whereabouts between 1873 and 1882, his first marriage and possible
descendants from that marriage, and most of all, what prompted him to
change his name, I am in need of help!
Any information would be greatly appreciated.

All four siblings are now deceased. John (wife - Dorothy) and Thomas (wife - Claudia) stayed in the Weymouth area; Bill (wife - Florence) moved to Connecticut. Jeanette moved to California in the early 1940s and married Harold E. Peterson (my father) in 1948. My mom started to trace her lineage but died before telling me where her notes were kept.

I would really like to know if anyone knows about ANY NESBITT family history from the area of Berwick-upon-Tweed as this is where my Grandfather, Walter Nesbitt (born 1914) was from (we believe that the name originates from there as near Berwick is a place called Nesbit, although it is marked on the map we can never find it to visit.)

Her family sold Glasgow some land and eventually that land was named Dennistown?. If you have any information on this please let me know.

I would be very happy to hear from any Nisbets (or Nesbitts) interested in the Pipe Organ, or the painter Robert H. Nisbet, N.A.(1879-1961), my great uncle. I am an organist, pianist, and representative of Gebr. Oberlinger Orgelbau in America. Gebr. Oberlinger is one of the largest and oldest mechanical-action pipe organ builders in Germany, handcrafting instruments in the Middle-Rhine tradition, traditionally blending the best of the German and French organbuilding traditions. Please visit our website: http://www.oberlinger.com/usa
Best wishes, John H. Nisbet, II

Just wanted to touch base with all the Nesbitts out there. My maternal grandfather, Ernest Nesbitt Anderson, emigrated to Tulsa, Oklahoma from County Durham, England in 1925. His mother's maiden name was Nora Nesbitt. I have also passed on this wonderful family name to my son, William Carl Nesbitt Berntson. I'll look forward to connecting with new relatives.

My father William Charles Hood Nisbet born on 18 Mar 1930 sadly is no longer with me due to a heart attack in 1993. He would have been very touched by this web site as we lost touch with his brother and sisters around 35 years ago, possibly early 1960's. I felt isolated with thoughts that we were the only Nisbets in the whole world. Throughout my childhood I asked him about my aunts and uncle and heard nothing but sorrow in his eyes. Could there have been some painful memories?However, I do know that I have early memories of two well-looked after girls a couple years older than myself whom I had been led to believe were my cousins but later was led to believe that I had never met any of my dad's family. There is a lot of mystery there that I would like to clear up. William was brought up in the West End of Glasgow, he had 1 older brother named George and I think he had 3 sisters with red hair one named Elizabeth. I am not sure of his dad's name but he may have helped with shelter duties during the second world war. As far as I know William's mother died in child birth, I think her name was Margaret. His father remarried at a later date when William was just a small lad, I think her name was Mary. For whatever reason contact discontinued, I look forward to reconcilate with my family and to hear of all those early memories, photographs if any, and most of all to have a loving family network for myself and my children. I am proud to be a NISBET.

PHOTOS, BOOKS, POSTCARDS, ETC.
I'm very interested in any items dealing with Evelyn Nesbit, early 20th century (late 1890s to 1930s) actress and chorus-girl (in the Floradora sextette). She appeared on Broadway, in Vaudeville, and in silent films. Her dark beauty was also the subject of many photographs, rotographs, etc. Her image was often on the cover of sheet music.
I am especially interested in postcards with her image. Postcards of Nesbit in a Kimono on a polar-bearskin rug, in a variety of poses, were very popular. Evelyn was 21st in Playboy Magazine's "100 Sexiest of the 20th Century." A true goddess.

I think most of them live in the USA - either that or they appear to breed faster out there!!! I have some very old photos of the family from the present dating back to 1860ish (I think..if photos were out then) and the family lived in Orpington Kent, UK...as far as I am aware. They were in the furniture removals/road haulage business. I dont know a great deal before my Grandfather (William Frederick) as he ran away to the Navy when he was young and was disowned by my Great Grandparents.

My research into our own family history has come to a stop at an ancestor, named Nisbet McRobbie. Nisbet McRobbie married Anne Owen on 18th August 1810 in Cupar, Fife, Scotland. They had at least eight children, one of whom I am descended from.
It is possible that Nisbet McRobbie, born in about 1783, was given his Christian name from a maternal source, for example maybe his mother was from the Nisbet family.
I would very much appreciate any help anyone can give me with this query!

My father, William John Nisbett, was born in Chicago in 1924. I do not know his father's name. Were there any Nisbetts in that area at that time that might be related to me?

I'm a member of the Australian NN Society. My grandfather, William-Smillie NISBET was born on 9 May 1886 at Overton Scotland. His father, David NISBET, was born on 1 March 1855 at Kilmarnock and his mother, Mary Ann SMILLIE was born on 30 July 1858 at Ayrshire. Can anyone help any further. The family came to Australia in October 1887 and over the years changed the spelling of our surname. Regards

I, Laura (maiden name Nesbitt) born 21st September 1952 to Adam Nesbitt 30th June 1929 and Sarah Donelly McKenna 24th June 1929; am trying to trace my family tree. Am having no luck on the Nesbitt line. My Grandmother, Mary born 20th July 1907 is still alive but can not assist with any dates or information. She was born in Glasgow Scotland and most of our family seems to come form there or Ireland.
We are presently living in the US due to work committments.

My mother's name is Doreen, she was born in Islington, London on 4 Aug 1951. She is trying to find her mother, Evelyn, who she hasn't seen since the late 50s, having been given up to a convent. We know that at the time Evelyn, of Irish descent, was a domestic servant living in Highbury New Park, and that she became involved with an African man called Arot Isac, who is believed to be my grandfather. The last known address for Evelyn is Sutherland Avenue, London W9. She is also believed to have had three other children, 2 boys and a girl. If anyone has any information about Evelyn or her children, please email me. Many thanks.

My great-great-great grandfather, Allen Nesbitt, d. Co. Cavan, Ireland c. 1815. Shortly thereafter his widow Jenny (Brown) and all but one of their 8(?) children came to America, landing near Montreal. 2 of the children were sick and remained on board; while visiting them one day Jenny and 2 other kids missed a boat and were forced to spend the night in the woods. It was cold, although June, and J. covered the kids (one my G. G. G-father Henry) with her cloak. She caught pneumonia and died shortly thereafter. A real pioneer story! The kids, left alone, eventually crossed into the U.S.A. and spread out across the country. Any info on the ancestry of Allen N. would be appreciated.

Wonder if there could be any connection between your Rodgers and my gg grandmother Ann Rodger who married John Finlay. Ann and John had at least one son, James, and possibly another, Samuel. Ann died before 29 Aug. 1897 (date of her son James' death). James was born (supposedly) in Ireland about 1833. He was a wool spinner by trade, and married Eliza Jane Caldwell/Coldwells who was also born in Ireland about 1835; died Hawick, Scotland 14 June, 1887.

Have just discovered this web page. I come from a large Nesbitt family in Northern Ireland and my GG originally came from Dundee in Scotland. In turn I know of some great uncles who emigrated to USA. There are literally dozens of Nesbitts in Northern Ireland, all of which are related including some famous ones. My grandfather's name was William John Nesbitt, son of a Blacksmith who settled in TemplePatrick in Co. Down and subsequently Ballymena in Co. Antrim, Northern Ireland. If you are interested or know any more please contact me.

This is my first outing in the world of genealogy. My husband's immediate family is gone, and he knows very little about his ancestors. His grandfather's name was George Nesbit and he died in Village, AR in the early 1920s. His son, James Travis Nesbit, was my husband's father. My husband and I now live in Arkansas, so we decided to research his family. It seems an awesome, maybe even insurmountable, task, but very interesting and rewarding.

Hello all you Nisbetts. I have been visiting this site more and more. Since I started searching my roots I have discovered many cousins I did not know I had. It has been really great. I have also found many interesting family facts on this great site. My great grandparents were John Hamilton Nesbitt who married Agnes McFarlane Hamilton in Dunbarton Scotland. He changed the spelling of his name when they came to Canada in 1911 to "Nisbett". So when you are researching make sure to check for spelling. I am going to Scotland in May so I hope to find out more. I will answer any e-mail if you care to contact me. "keep smiling"

In re-checking my web site, I found that I do have a great grandfather who was born in Perry County, Pennsylvania...I don't know beyond that, except family rumors that our ancestors went to Ireland to escape religious persecution.
