  • Imrie family?

    Greetings! I'm looking for info on the Imrie family, I believe originally from Perth. My husband's great-grandfather Imrie sailed to the U.S. on a boat that shipwrecked going around the Horn. He was one of only two survivors, and ended up in Napa Valley, California. This name spelling is very unusual in the U.S. and we learned that the family name itself originates from Perth. Any details, anyone? Thank you.

    Give a look at Strathern District just a wee south of Perthshire.The name is possibly a shortened form of a personal name, Amalric. The first record of the name in Scotland appears in 1329 as Emeric,a Lombard of Flanders who was spoiled or looted by John Crabbe of Berwick. (Black's "The Surnames of Scotland").
