- accommodated by the project Historical Peebles-shire (Link to follow) which covers the History of Peeblesshire 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 Peebles-shire - Famous People and add them to the listing there.


People from Peeblesshire 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 "Peeblesshire families on Geni" below if that was their roots, or to the appropriate county project.
