People connected to Banffshire can also be linked to the following projects.


Historical and Political people

- accommodated by the project Historic Banffshire (Link to follow) which covers the History of Banffshire and historical/political people. Some of these are also listed in the Famous people category.

Famous or Notable People

Those people of note with connections to the county are listed below. Some of these connections are a little tenuous - counties like to lay claim to people of renown! Please visit Banffshire - Famous People and add them to the listing there.


People from Banffshire who went to the "New world" and were early progenitors in those countries. Where the earliest ancestor is known please add them to the list of "Banffshire families on Geni" below if that was their roots, or to the appropriate county project.

Where the earliest known ancestor is the emigrant add them to the list below. In some cases if there is a project that covers them in detail please link the project.
