Brian & Chris Playne Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia.
I had a message via Peter Dunn that you were on the net. It's a really lovely home page. We also have CHALMERS from Fife. They were mostly from Elie, Crail and St Andrews. I have downloaded your gedcom to see if anything fits. Our ancestors are James Chalmers & Agnes Merchiston (m 1702). ......Regards, Brian & Chris
Cyndy Zachry Kerrville, Texas, United States
I found your pages very interesting. The Chalmers I am looking for are Joseph born in Leeds around 1876 who lived with his aunt and uncle Evan and Jane JONES in Liverpool in 1891. Also a Miss Margaret Chalmers who as of the 1960/70 lived in Stockport Chesire. I never knew what the origins of Chalmers was,thank you for your informative page.
Kenneth Chalmers Kirk Anchorage, Alaska, United States

Thanks, John.....It's great!
John Donaldson Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, Canada
A most impressive website. You have done a lot of work since I last visited. I am sure that we have some connections somewhere, after all, John and George and James appear very regularly in both lines. I'll be getting over to the LDS sometime in the next couple of days and see if I can find anything about George Donaldson. I have a James Donaldson born in 1840 in Abernethy Perths who could be George's father. Keep in touch. John
John Donaldson Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
Hi John and family Unfortunately I cannot see a match for your Donaldsons and mine. I was also interested in Summers as the mother of my GG grandmother Mary Helmrich was an Elspet Summers or Symmers,(1775-1862) immigrated form Germany to Aberdeen. Keep up the good work.
George Bell Panama
I am researching the Chalmers surname. The most complete record I have is of a David Chalmers, born 9 Oct 1845, in Sorbie, Ardrossan, Scotland. Emigrated to U.S. and died Jan 1922, Cambridge, Maryland. His Parents are Hugh Chalmers and Agnes de Barclay (?). There is a gravestone for Hugh and Agnes off Borbie Rd, Burgh By. but is is well worn. My aunt Donna Chalmer (Eastburn) visited it. This is as far back as my family has been able to help. Hopefully, someday the U.S. Air Force will send me to the U.K. Great site!!!
Vera, Marvin & Juergen Lennefer Kuerten, NRW, Germany

Ross Porter 110 Grey Street, CAMBRIDGE, New Zealand
A genealogy beginner, I'm hooked in to finding family in Kinross-shire and other Scottish Counties. I appreciated John's reply and would love to think that my "Elspeth Hay" from Cleish was connected to your Jean. Research will tell.
Steven Brande Pleasant Grove, Utah, USA
This is a great start! I hope to submit more from my other side of the family, the clan MacIntyre. (this is a reference to Steve's surnames submission to the GENUKI Kinross Surname List)
Janet Chalmers Montreal, Canada
Hi, my name is Janet Chalmers. My father's parents were from Scotland, although I dont't know from where. My father's name was George Cassels Chalmers. I don't believe there are any relatives left, but I would be curious to know where they were from. they came to Canada roughly in the 1950's. I live in Montreal, Canada and can be reached through this e-mail name above. Who knows, we might be related. It's been fun to see our crest and know that we belong to the Cameron clan. I would love to visit Scotland some day. Thanks for this mini peak. Take care Chalmers folks!

I was led to your page while doing a search for Dall. My grandfathers name was David Jefferson Dall. I don't know much about him except that he was born in Scotland. My mother doesn't know much herself since he left the family when she was very young. I'm thinking of visiting Scotland this summer and now I'd like to know more about the guy. Your page looks great! Thanks.
Linda Kuzyk Ontario, Canada
Very lovely webpage John. Had a look at your surnames, and became excited when I saw a Hutton, my maiden name. Unfortunately, yours is a hundred years before mine, so I guess I still have some digging to do. Lets hope the Kinross surname list will prove a little more fruitful.

Matthew J. Chalmers Zeeland, MI, United States of America
Thank you for setting up this page. I have been studying my family tree as of late and have traced our heritage back to Glasgow in about 1850. This has been difficult seeing as how our male Chalmers seem to die very young. My Great Grandfather, Robert W. Chalmers was the first Chalmers to to the "States." I will have to check what his parents names were in Glasgow.
Jim Gillespie Canberra, ACT, Australia
I regularly do a net-search for my home town "Tillicoultry" and this time I found it associated with Jane Hume Brown Chalmers or nurse Chalmers as I knew her when I lived opposite her in Tillicoultry. My mother tells me she brought me into the world with some help from the doctor! My parents and I came to live in Australia Christmas 1963. This is a terrific web site and if you can give me some news of nurse Chalmers I would really appreciate it.
Callum MacFarlane Milgavie, Glasgow, Scotland
Hello to you all! Mr Chalmers name came up when I searched the Net for Alloa Academy ex-pupils - there appears to be only one CV on the net mentioning Alloa Academy! Anyway, I dont know any of you, but I would just like to say what a terrific web site you've all put together. Well done! Regards, Callum (Alloa Academy 1979-1984)

Cheers David

My father, Kenneth McRae Chalmers, emigrated to Vancouver from England in the early 1960s. He was born in Singapore. I am from Toronto, Canada, but am now working and living in London. I've known no other Chalmers, other than immediate relatives, so it was fascinating to discover this site. Thanks!

Dianne Gibson Seder Spingfield, Massachusetts, United States
Hi: I absolutely love your site. It is so different and pleasant and interesting. The music is quite a special touch. I do have a question for you though. All the Gibson's in the database seem to be born in the late 1880's and early 1890's. Do you have any parent names for these Gibson's? I'm researching my grandfather ALEXANDER GIBSON. He was born in 1886 and I was wondeing if some of these (or all) GIBSON'S could be siblings. His mothers name was CHAROLETTE PERRY, and his father was SAMUEL GIBSON. I've got relatives that tells me he was born in either Belfast, Ir. or others say its Dundee, Scotland. If any of my information rings any bells with you, PLEASE get back to me. Respectfully, Dianne Gibson Seder p.s. I really do love your pages, excellent site.

Peter Chalmers Ayr, Ayrshire, Scotland
Great Website. I am from N. Ireland but my family are originally from Marnoch, Banffshire. My Great-grandfather, James Watson Chalmers was born in Advie, Invernesshire, became an Insurance Surveyor and moved to N. Ireland. He married Mary Mcmillan. She died and he then married a lady called Letitia. He died in Portsmouth. His father was Alexander Simpson Chalmers who was a Railway station master with the Great North of Scotland Railway before becoming Superintendant of Aberdeen Markets. I am particularly interested in tracing descendants of his other children. They are Alexander Watson Chalmers who married Martha Walker, Charles Chalmers who married Mary Ann Gillooly and was a Bookseller, Alice Smith Chalmers, Alexina Jane Chalmers who married Alex Baillie, Isabella Chalmers and Maggie Ann Chalmers. If anyone has any info I'd dearly love to hear from them. Peter.

Rhonda C. Brown Vauxhall, Alberta, Canada
What a great website!!! My great grandmother is Catherine Chalmers. She married Alexander Dunbar Brown on March 26th, 1886 in Edinburgh. They had a son named John Chalmers Brown on March 29, 1893 in Bridgend, Dunblane and I believe two daughters by the names of Jennifer (never married) and Isabella (we believe she had a son named James) I'm looking for any further connections anyone might be able to supply!!!

Connie Locke Saegertown, PA, U.S.A.

Douglas Harrington Holliston, MA, USA
Very intersting site, the Chalmers certainly were prolific! I'm trying to "get across the pond" and locate the parents of William Chalmers born September 23, 1814 supposedly in Aberdeen. He immigrated to New Brunswick in 1835 and married Mathilda Brown, born in Paisley, Renfrewshire; October 29, 1827. I know a lot about Mathilda but have made no progress on William. Any suggestions, comments would be welcome. Again, great site (and I liked the music) Regards, Doug Harrington

Peter Rodger Hexham, UK
I was interested to fine my Great Uncle George Rodger in you surnames list (ref 80 vii). He was one of 5 children of George Rodger who came to Sheffield from Greenock, Scotland in about 1875. He was an engineer. George F Rodger (in your list) was sent to Canada in desperation by his father as he would not apply himself to gainful employment. He was variously a photographer, a rogue and latterly a draughtsman for the Otis Elevator Co and lived in Hamilton Ontario. He died aged 97 in 1974, unmarried and still smoking 4o ciggies a day along with his pipe. I have many of his photographs, his drawing tools and even some of his drawings. There are some splendid photos of him in uniform by the Mennnim gate in France. Let me know if you would like a copy. I rather suspect that he is not connected with your Rodgers. Peter Rodger

I am researching the name Imrie for my family's genealogy. My great-grandfather, Alexander was born in October 1862 in Dundee, Fife. Since he was illegitmate, only his mother's name appears on the birth certificate; Elizabeth Imrie, mill worker. I have not yet been able to determine an age for her. Alexander married Amelia Lamb MCQUEEN in 1892 in Edinburgh. There, they had 13 children then moved the whole family to Montreal Canada. Amelia died in Canada in 1933 and Alexander in 1944 in San Jose, California where he had moved in with one of his daughters. If this rings a bell with you, please feel free to contact me. Also, your main page is a little difficult to read with the blue writing on the red tartan. Thank you.

Ed Sanders Searcy, Arkansa, USA
Sanders is a sept of MACALISTER, so I feel a connection with Scotland. Since 1975, my wife, Evelyn, a nurse, and I, a university professor have visited the UK almost annually until now, when we are in our 70s and less strong than when we could supervise up to 52 students per visit. Peterhead, Aberdeenshire, is a favorite spot, with so many lovely friends. All the best to you, John, Jenn and Moira.

A fascinating website. My grandfather, from Kinross, was Francis Chalmers Winton; my great-grandfather was Francis Chalmers, born approximately 1828, also we believe in Kinross. My mother was the youngest of 5 daughters, also one son. They live in Perth (Scotland), Rotherham (England, Strathmiglo (Fife, Scotland), London and Southampton respectively. My Uncle, William Winton, the only resident of Milnathort near Kinross, died three years ago, and is buried in Milnathort cemetery.

John Paton Chalmers Inverness, Scotland
I have found your page and especially the number of contacts made by Chalmers' or relatives of the same to be very interesting indeed! My grandfather, John Chalmers, was one of thirteen who lived in Largs, Ayrshire. In fact his second wife, Jessie Chalmers is still resident there today. My grandafather's twelve brothers and sisters along with the rest of his family emigrated to Canada 1920s or 30s. He had to remain here in Scotland due to having had both his legs amputated as a result of fighting in the trenches during the First World War. His sons were John and William. John had no family and I am the youngest of the three children of William Paton Chalmers and Annie Brown Walker or Chalmers, namely, William, Ann and John - 1945, 1947 and 1950. I have never really bothered with tracing the Chalmers side of my family but now that I have the Web this may change. Hope all visitors to your website are successful in the aims they are poursuing when visiting it. Yours John P. Chalmers.

Deitra Goodings (nee Connell) Burlington, Ont. Canada
I was trying to find a John Chalmers (approx. 50-53 yrs. old) who lived in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada when he was young. I met him when I was 16 and he 20. He cut roses for me from his mom's garden on my birthday. I have always wondered how he is doing since our lives drifted apart, but have thought of him often over the years. I have no idea if he is related some how. I would love to hear from him. Thanks. Deitra

Great stuff. I am related to James, TAMATE, who worked in Polynesia and New Guinea for the London Missionary Society. Thnks for the site - It's good to locate the family name and its history.
Jane Chalmers California
What a delightful website and how wonderful of you to take on such a challenge! I have already made contact with someone from your guest list and hope it will unite a few more of us Chalmers whose roots are in Tillicoultry and the surrounding towns. Grandparents John and Mary were married in 1895 and had 4 children - David, Agnes, Winnie and Jim (my dad). David and Agnes stayed in Scotland and the other two emigrated to the U.S. - Detroit for Winnie (married Sinclair Malcolm - my "uncle sink") and Jim to Cleveland. As I understand it, Uncle David had 7 girls; I'm not sure if Agnes ever married; Winnie had one son (George Malcolm), and Jim had one son (who had 2 girls) and me (no children). I'm hoping someone will know if grandfather John had any brothers, but in any event, would love to here from anyone else that has ties to that part of the country. Love to you all and God bless, Jane

David Grossett San Antonio, Texas, USA
Hello! Your web page was recommended to me by Moragh Klinginsmith at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio where we both do volunteer work at one of the information desks. We are both involved in genealogical research of our respective forbears. Most of my ancestors lived in Leith and Inverkeithing. One a Marion GROSSET, b. Abt. 1839 d. 25 Feb 1888 in Leith, m. a William CHALMERS on 6 Jul 1858 in Inverkeithing. They had a daughter, Marion CHALMERS, who was b. Abt. 1860. A great web page - and, like Moragh, I too like the musical accompaniment. May I copy some of your ideas when I get around to doing a Grossett web page? David

My father was Cecil Baillie Chalmers born and died in Kinross. My son, Andrew Baillie Chalmers from Edinburgh signed your guestbook earlier this year and his son, my grandson, Calum Baillie Chalmers, is keeping the family name going in this area. Your father (my cousin) the late John Dall Chalmers very kindly gave me a copy of his original book with copies of family photographs, before he died and am now attempting to update these to incorporate my own line of the Chalmers family. Your site with the musical accompaniment is excellent and I shall be back for more. Hope to be in direct contact again soon. David B. Chalmers.

I discovered your website as a result of a search using my family name as the keyword. What a pleasant surprise! I never knew the origins of the "Chalmers" name. Thanks, your website is really informative and interesting.
James Brown Chalmers Inverurie, Aberdeenshire, Scotland
Very interesting home page but we need more history of the clan to keep this going. Origins of the Chalmers name seems to be Norman coming over here with William the Conqueror. The clan map sets out our home area as near the village of Kintore approximately 12 miles west of Aberdeen. There you are I have started, who's going to follow up? I belong to Arbroath and all of my family connections still live there. The only famous Chalmers out of Arbroath was James Chalmers the inventor of the adhesive stamp, who was born there in 1782 and moved later to Dundee. However there does not seem to any connection with my family.

Charles D. Chalmers Mill Valley, CA, 94941 USA
A wonderful contribution. I will return to add information but will leave a few things now. My grandfather came over from Scotland to Canada before WWI. My familiy is from Dundee and I have some particulars which I will post later. I have a source which reports, without any ability to confirm of course, that the name arises from some cadets of the cameron, or camerias, family who were banished because they attacked their overlord. They went to France where for many generations they continued, until one of them returned to Scotland. I will cite the source of this tale when I return. In recent wonderings on the Web I found the web page for an Irish Chalmers family, decendant from Scots who went to Ireland in the 16th century or so. http://www.uftree.com/UFT/WebPages/decfam/default/index.htm#xxxCHALMERS. I have half brothers or sisters who probably don't even know of my existence. They would be the children of Jack Chalmers, of New York City or other parts of New York State. If they see this I'd love to make contact. Remember that Robert Burns celebrated a member of our family, one of his friend, by a song to girl his friend loved. A Song for Willie Chalmers, 1786. Its very pretty. Thanks for this wonderful site. Charles D. Chalmers
I am researching my great great grandmother Euphemia Chalmers who married George Innes in Carnock, Fife in 1838. They came to Australia in 1841 and settled in Victoria. I would appreciate any information on Euphemia or George

Although I didn't find a connection yet, I'm descended from James Chalmers b. 1757 Broxburn, Midlothian, Scotland who married Bettey Banks. I think James's parents were Robert Chalmers and Agnes Hardy - does anyone know any more there?

Was starting to get tired after a long surfing session, but your great music stirred me again. Loved the tartan and the site. We have Chalmers as christian names eg. Thomas Kiddie Chalmers ROLLO father b1913 Scotland, son of same name b1936. Somewhere you may have some reference to the above. Will visit again soon.

Diane McEathron Russell El Cajon, California, USA
I'm helping my aunt trace our ancesty and am trying to find information on Mary Jane Chalmers who wed Adam Skeldon in Haddingtonshire, Scotland in 1866. I have also been given the names of Roy Chalmers Skeldon, Benjamin Chalmers, Roy Chalmers Skeldon II, George Lindsey Skeldon. Apparently some of their children were given their mother's maiden name as a middle name. I would appreciate any help you can offer.
John Paton Chalmers, Inverness, Scotland
This is a truly wonderful homepage. My granfather, John Paton Chalmers was born in Largs just after the turn of the 20th century. He was one of 12, seven brothers and five sisters. During the FWW he had both legs amputated. This was the reason he stayed behind when his eleven brothers and sisters emigrated to Canada in 1922. They moved to the Hamilton area from where two of the sisters later returned. Before my Father died, Chrstmas 1999, we gathered all sorts of information from him and I am currently constructing a family tree. I have never visited Canada but know for sure that I must have literally dozens of relatives over there. No doubt I will arrive some time. To all of you out there with and related to this surname, look after yourselves!

Great Page and information. I am a Chalmers descendant from a family of Fife, Scotland. I am a newcomer to the 'web' and so far have some difficulty navigating homepages. What I have seen so far is interesting, but does not seem to have much relevance to my research. I have been involved in serious genealogy for 12 years (more or less) and am a member of the NZ Genealogical Society, and the local Dunedin Branch of that organisation.

Nicki Rayment Reigate, Surrey, UK
Brilliant site. My Chalmers connections concern my g-grandmother, Annie Isobella Chalmers, daughter of Andrew Chalmers & Jane Scott, Andrew was born 6th May 1856 in Eassie & Nevay, Angus, eldest child of James Chalmers & Ann Davidson who married the day after his birth on 7th May 1856. James parents were Andrew Chalmers & Agnes Peebles, they married Nov 1830 in Longforgan, both were recorded as living in Littletown at the time. James & Ann Chalmers and their children moved from Scotland to Aynho, Northampton and then to Gatton in Surrey sometime in the 1870's. James died at Gatton in 1891. His son Andrew Chalmers (my g-g-grandfather) was the village Blacksmith in Merstham, Surrey and his brother John, ran a Coachbuilding business in Redhill, Surrey. Another brother, David, ran the Blacksmiths Arms pub in Caterham. They also had sisters: Agnes, Ann, Margaret, Cecelia & Hellen. I'd be interested in anyone who has any ties with this line of the family, be it in! Surrey or Scotland.

Mattias Ansebo Gothenburg, Sweden
Hi there! My only connection to Chalmers is that I study at Chalmers University of Tecnology here in Gothenburg, Sweden. I am however very curious about the Scottish tartans that the clans of Scotland have. William Chalmers (1748-1811) donated his wealth so that the university could be founded. Now I would like to know if the Chalmers family has some special tartan. I have searched all over the Internet and this seems like a good place to get some answers. William must have been related to some of you. Please send me an email if you can help me or give me a hint of where to look. Best regards Mattias Ansebo Student at Chalmers University of Technology

I am descended from David Chalmers(born about 1800 in Kilmarnoc, Ayershire, Scotland)- James Logan Chalmers -Mary Elizabeth Chalmers who was my great, great grandmother. I would appreciate any genealogy info on David's parents. Also, would love some ideas of what to see and where to stay when in Scotland, we only have 10 days and my husband wants to visit his Scot roots as well! Thanks for your web site, I enjoyed it!

Juliana Chinese wife, Naples, Florida, USA
. . . Juliana here please. Well! I thought only we Chinese were hooked on family
names. But I sure learned diferently with so many of you Westerners chasing "Chalmers" all over the
globe. . . . . . . . . We go by clan names - I belong to the Singapore branch of the Teochew clan
and I speak that dialect of the mother tongue, the Mandarin language. My husband who writes some for
Oxford UN.Pr. (THE KRIS), wrote a scholarly book about how langusage is used in Southeast Asia. It's
TO PLEASE A CHINESE WIFE and is reviewed on amazon.com. . . . . . . I met him at a durian festival
in Bangkok and now I live in his country. Do you know that in Chinese writing "America" is spelled
with just two characters - mei guo, which translate to "beautiful country" Isn't that nice of us to
do them such a favor? . . . . . . Thank you, dear Chalmers clan, I'm sure you're all lovely
people. Sincerely yours, Juliana, Chinese wife.

I have enjoyed your site. I am trying to find information about my great grandfather Thomas Clark Chalmers. All I know is that he married Virginia Reed Hogmire (AKA Virginia Boyd) in 1866 and that their son Thomas Clark Chalmers was born in New York City in 1869. His father may have been named Stephen and some of the family lived near Charlton NY. Unfortunately Thomas Chalmers seems to have been a popular name.

Hi Chalmerses! I'm actually only a Chalmers as a result of parents' divorce and remarriage, but I still consider myself one... The site is wonderful.

Marg Rosen Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Hi everybody - what a thrill to reach the Chalmers family!! My gr gr grandmother was Mary Chalmers(1788-1881)born in Markinch, Fifeshire, daughter of David Chalmers(1754-) and Jannet Robertson. Mary married George Donaldson on Nov 09 1815 in Rathven Banffshire and had a son Charles Donaldson born 1836 Banffshire, Scotland. Charles migrated to Canada with Mary (widow) ca 1860 and had 11 children. However Mary's application for a land patent lists her as the widow of James Donaldson who served in the war. Querries: What war did he serve in? Who was James? What happened to George? Was Charles Donaldson her only child? Did any other Chalmers migrate to Canada? Is there a Canadian Chalmers branch? Would love to hear from anyone with info on this branch of the family. Will share my data.

I really enjoyed visiting your website, and I can appreciate ALL of the hard work, over probably many years, that went into researching and creating it! What a wonderful thing to do for all of the many among us who are deeply interested in searching for our Roots! I could not help but notice, just how many Simmers individuals are among the members of your family tree. After viewing the Simmers from all the counties in Scotland, I am truly amazed at the numbers of them, and also how some of their names seem to have changed spellings from Symmers, Symer, Simmer and other! I am looking for info regarding any Simmers who may have left Scotland and emigrated to the U.S.A.! If anyone who reads this might know of any, I would be most appreciative! Please visit my Simmers websites, if you're interested. You may be quite surprised! Best regards, Tom Simmers, in California

Hello John, I am a descendant of John and Ann Chalmers originally of Broxburn, Midlothian, and later Airdrie, Lanarkshire, Scotland. My cousin Bradley A. Chalmers has recently compiled a history of the family of John and Ann titled "From Broxburn to Ballarat and Beyond" 150 Years of the Family of John and And Chalmers in Australia 1849-1899. ISBN 0 646 38394 9 . The book was launched to coincide with the family re-union held at Deniliquin, NSW, in November, 1999. I have recently returned from Papua New Guinea where I had the interesting experience of working with a National whose village dined on Rev. James Chalmers. The Rev. was and remains a legend in that country. John, the Chalmers name is well known and respected in Northern Victoria and Southern New South Wales as I imagine it is all over the world. It is great to see so many Chalmers' visiting your site. My email address is available should any out there wish to call. Regards Owen.
Andrea Rosemary Chalmers Brampton, Ontario, Canada
My paternal grandfather's name is George McGregor Chalmers and was born in 1920, in Aberdeen, Scotland. He is the youngest of 12 children, born to John and Mary Chalmers - my great-grandparents (great-grandpa John originated from the Orkney Islands of Scotland and great-grandma Mary's maiden name was 'Bowes-Lyon'). They immigrated to Toronto, Ontario, Canada when my grandfather George was 2 yrs. old (1922). After serving 5 yrs. overseas as an army veteran in WW2, he married Mary Mehedan in 1947 and had 2 beautiful children; Ron and Patty. They also have 5 wonderful grandchildren; myself (Andrea), Darryl, Ronnie, Derek and Kelly. Great website, "Hello" to all the Chalmers Clans out there!

What a Wonderful site! I'm glad I found it. I too am interested in learning of my Scottisn heritage. I have information from birth certificates and a marriage certificate. I will record this information hoping someone will find a connection to their roots. My Grandfather, James Chalmers was born May 23,1880 in Whimfield Cottage. This information taken from the Register Book of Births/Parish of Kinross/County off Kinross March 5,1892. His parents:James(a mason)and Jane Ovens were married June 229,1866 in Edinburgh. I know my grandfather had a brother Harry who brought his wife Belle to the U.S. settling in the state of Missouri. I beleive he may also have had a brother David and a sister. A Henry Chalmers witnessed his marriage. I don't know if this is another brother or if this would be Harry,that I know of. My Grandmother: Jane Anne Legg was born November 18,1878 at Burnside of Balconnell. Her birth registered Parish of Mennuir(not sure of spelling)County of Forfar. My Grandmother had a sister Belle/Bella and a brother George and possiblllly another sister Nan. Her father:James (farm servant) hermother Anne Perrie. They were married April 17,1903 at 4 Scotia Street,Glasgow(what is there now?) William Smart Todd minister of New City Road Congregational Church officiated. Is this Church still there? I'd like to visit. My father: Francis Ovens Chalmers Born September 24,1907 at Pond Cottage, Lethangie. Registered in Parish of Kinross Book of Births. His sister: Anne (Chalmers)Beers born August 30,1904 Rolland Street Glasgow. Birth registered-Kelvin district,Glasgow. I believe my Grandfather brought his family to the USA in September 1908 and settled on Long Island in the state of New York. We have some articles that he wrote and sent to the Kinross-shire Advertiser telling of his journey.

Sandra Patterson Cameron, North Carolina, USA
My ggg-grandmother was Catherine Chalmers, b. 18 Dec 1807 in Balbirnie Mill, Fife. She was the daughter of George Chalmers and Agnes Melvill. Catherine married William Hill on January 12, 1828, and they came to the United States, settling in Dover, Massachusetts. Catherine died July 26, 1867 and is buried in the town cemetery in Needham, Massachusetts. Her death certificate names her parents, Balbirnie Mills as her place of birth, it also mentions Markinch where she was christened. Would love to know if there are other decendents of George and Agnes(Melvill) Chalmers out there. George and Agnes had 6 other children: David, Janet, Andrew, Thomas, Fife and Mary Jane. It has been wonderful finding more of our family history from Scotland!!

Peter Chalmers Ayr, Ayrshire, Scotland
I am from N. Ireland but my family are originally from Marnoch, Banffshire. My Great-grandfather, James Watson Chalmers was born in Advie, Invernesshire, became an Insurance Surveyor and moved to N. Ireland. He married Mary Mcmillan. She died and he then married a lady called Letitia. He died in Portsmouth. His father was Alexander Simpson Chalmers who was a Railway station master with the Great North of Scotland Railway before becoming Superintendant of Aberdeen Markets. I am particularly interested in tracing descendants of his other children. They are Alexander Watson Chalmers who married Martha Walker, Charles Chalmers who married Mary Ann Gillooly and was a Bookseller, Alice Smith Chalmers, Helen Adam Chalmers, Alexina Jane Chalmers who married Alex Baillie, Isabella Chalmers and Maggie Ann Chalmers. If anyone has any info I'd dearly love to hear from them. Peter.

My Chalmers were from Strichen until John Chalmers moved to Fyvie and had a wool dying plant, the Mill of Ardlogie. He married a Castel and their daughter Isabella married Peter INNES from Marnoch in 1867. Peter and Isabella emigrated to NZ in 1863 and 1866. If anyone has a connection I have traced those families. Great site and a great service!

John Chalmers Derby, England
Many congratulations on a great web site, but what have you done with all my relations? Grandfather David Lockhart Chalmers born 1862 in Liverpool. He had four sisters Edith, Muriel, Antonia and Margaret and three brothers Arthur, Francis, and Anthony, all born in Everton, Liverpool between 1857 and 1872. Their father was Anthony Wigham Chalmers a prominent Accountant in Liverpool, born in Barony Glasgow in 1815. Anthony had two brothers, Thomas and Dr David Chalmers, who were also born in Barony. Dr David became Consultant Surgeon at the Northern Hospital, Liverpool and he retired in Surrey with his wife Ellen Dodson. They had 3 children Thomas, Harriette, and Harold. Harold emigrated to the USA (Colorado) where he married Georgia Belle Dudley and had a daughter Belle Ellen Chalmers. Belle married Herbert Winthrop Wadley and I have been successful in tracing some of their descendants. But where are all the other descendants? Can anybody help?

Kia Ora. Phew!! What a lot of Chalmers have signed your guest book, and here I was thinking that there weren't that many of us about. Google search engine brought me to this site which is very interesting. My Grandmother, Maggie Ann Chalmers came to New Zealand early 1900's. She was born in Alford to James Alexandra Chalmers and Mary (nee Grant) in June 1887. James's parents were John and Jane (nee Mair)Chalmers. Mary Grants parents names, Alexander Grant and Jane (nee Davidson). I have just started on this side of the tree, what I have written is all I have so far. Feel free to get in touch with me if you can help me get to know these people. I will be back to this site when I have more spare time!! Cheers

John, you've done an outstanding job with your website - what an incredible labor of love! Since I last accessed it, I took my first trip "home" to walk where my dad did and try to connect a few more of the dots. Needless to say it was wonderful - it's such a beautiful country! Perhaps one of your visitors might have some information on the marriage of Thomas Chalmers to Elizabeth Thomson c. 1838 and probably in Fife since their son, David, was born there - a surprise since the rest of my lineage lived in and around Tillicoultry. David married Jane Richardson in 1864 and raised their children in Bannockburn - Jane, Elizabeth, John, Janet, Margaret and David, jr. John was my grandfather and attained the rank of sergeant in the military, probably with the Gordons. He married Mary Miller Galloway of Tillicoultry and had four children, David, Agnes, Winnie and Jim (my dad). Going back, there are close ties with the Meikeljohn and Miller families which I still need to pursue. And going forward, the ties by marriage thus far are with McKay, Selfridge, Stockdale, Malcolm and Dickinson, all in and around Fife, Clackmannenshire and Perthshire. Bravo for your effort, John. I'll visit again soon!

Douglas Long, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
My grandmother was Ethel Mary Elizabeth Chalmers (died about 1975) who's family came to New Zealand late in the 19th Century via Mauritius. Her father was an engineer who, I believe, was involved in the building of the NZ Main Trunk railway line - especially the Mangaweka and/or the Makohine Viaducts. His brother was Harry Chalmers who went on to become Chief Executive then Chairman of the Bank of New Zealand (died about 1972). I know nothing of this side of my family although, some 40 years ago, I believe my fathers brother obtained some information indicating a link to the Camerons of Erracht. Unfortunately my father and uncle are now dead.
Other members of my grandmother's family were Scott, Amy, Helen and Katie. Harry had two sons, Ian and David and I believe David still lives in Auckland although I have not seen him for many years. Prior to retirement he was Chief Executive of New Zealand Insurance and he was actively involved with the NZ Institute of Company Directors.
I would be interested in any information anyone might have about the family.

I've enjoyed paging through your wonderful website. Like many of those commenting, I'm trying to learn more about my family. My grandparents, Isaac and Agnes (Hannah) Chalmers emigrated to the US (Detroit, Michigan)from Grenoch around 1910. They lived in Detroit until around 1922, but returned to Scotland with their two children, Edna and my father Walton. Both my parents are deceased. I know quite a bit about my mother's family, but remain in the dark about the Chalmers of Scotland. Any information about me(us) would be very appreciated. Wally Chalmers

JANE FLUHMANN-EVARD Neuchatel, Switzerland
Hello, I would like first, to excuse my bad english, but I went to learn english in 1957 to Bury in Lancashire, and I found a job in a family .... T.P. Chalmers "Daddy" I called him. He came from St Andrew and his mother was there. Daddy was a gynaecologist, his surgery was on the Manchester Road at Bury. His wife was called Jean and they had two kids a girl named Patricia and a boy called Russel. I remember, Daddy was 39 at 1957 so If God keep Him well He should be actually 84 years old. I know that when I left them at 1959, they went to Australia and I think after they went to New Zealand. My wish, it would be so nice for me to receive some news from their family. I hope that you will be able to send me a nice and good news. I wish to you all, all the best. God bless you. I've been very pleased the read your guestbook Chalmers family, this is a name that I will remember as long as I live.

They had a son named John Chalmers Brown on March 29, 1893 in Bridgend, Dunblane and I believe two daughters by the names of Jennifer (never married) and Isabella (we believe she had a son named James). John Chalmers Brown immigrated to Canada and served in WWI with the Winnipeg Rifles (in the "Little Black Devils"). He married Dorothy Katherine Hirst of Stonewall, Manitoba, Canada. I'm looking for any further connections anyone might be able to supply!!!

I am seeking information on a James Chalmers (Chambers) who was born 1753 in Dufermline Fife, married an Elizabeth Kerr, born 1757 in Dunfermline Fife. I believe these two to be my ggg grandparents.

I would like as much information on these two as I would like to confirm if they are the people I am looking for and who their families were.

Hello to the Chalmers family, Excellent website. I was sure that there was some connection as my ancestor William Whyte Chalmers married Margaret Dall. However, my relatives are from Kirkcaldy.

Sandra Estelle Paton Hill Summit Hill, Carbon Co. Pennsylvania
I have found this site quite interesting. I did find a section on Captain John Paton, the Scottish Covenanter from the 1600's. I had found a site once before but could never come across it again. I finally stumbled unto this one and found it very interesting until I lost it once again. I have been researching the Paton and Tainsh families and have not been making to much progress as I am a first generation here in the U.S.A. All generations from my father back were born in and around Sauchie and Alva,CLK,Scotland. Looking for any distant relatives that maybe around this vast world. Very interesting site.

John Bevis Geilston Bay, Tasmania, Australia
As it has been about three years since I made my last posting, and I am not having much luck finding a fellow traveller, it is probably about time that I tried again. I have traced my family back to John CHALMERS born at Calton, Barony, which apprently is near Glasgow LKS, about 1779, John married Jean CLARKSON, born 1787, in 1804. Anyways, after several years of knocking my head against the wall, the only John CHALMERS that I can find in the LDS IGI who was born around 1779 was the eldest son of William CHALMERS b. Glasgow about 1753 and Jean HOWIE born Glasgow about 1757, married at Glasgow 1 FEB 1777. The other children I can find for the family are Mary 1777, William 1784, Alexander 1787, Jean 1789, William 1791 (stet), and George 1797. The 1830 to 1835 MLN Testaments show that there was a William CHALMERS working as a blacksmith at Calton. It would be great to hear from anyone researching the CHALMERS at Calton or Barony, or who have the HOWIE name in their family tree. Maybe you are not researching this particular line line of the family, but you may know someone who is.

Erin Chalmers Sydney, NSW, Australia
Hi I have just found this site.I am a descendent of Rev Duncan Chalmer 1560.I have a small piece of information "The Chalmers Family Tree" From Dornoch to Fiji ,1560 to 1960. My grandfather was one of 3 brothers (Douglas Charles Chalmers b 24.10.1884(NZ) d 28.9.1938) who were all lawyers qualified in NZ and Fiji. I was born in NZ 1946. My brother Bruce Chalmers b 24.5.44 d 22.6.77.
Donald Boyd Chalmers Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
My ancestors migrated to Australia from Airdrie (but ? originally from Ayrshire)in 1852 (I think). From their arrival at the Port of Geelong the family of brothers etc moved to Ballarat, during the gold rush there. My father Harry won't be too impressed if he reads this page and realizes that I don't have it all "at call" as he does at 87 years of age. My father is the son of "Harry Black Chalmers", and my great grandfather learned to play the bagpipes in his old age - and I think I was the next to take them up, the family having practically forgotten about such things. The music must have been in the blood however, and after harping to learn for many years, commenced lessons in 1956 when I was 11. I had the pleasure of playing "A Man's a Man for a' That!" while visiting Scotland (The Earl of Mansfield's Palace!) in 2000 - my first visit to U.K. That surely would have been the thought of our antecedants in their duties as "servants of the chamber".

Thank you for your web site. My great grandfather James Gray lived in Curate Wynd until 1855 when he came to Australia. I was fascinated to see your 1820's map showing the location of the Gray home.

Hi! Typed in the name Chalmers and your site came up. Barbara Sampers (descended from one of two brothers who migrated from Massachusetts, names William and George, to Watsonville, California area) and I are researching our family history. I know my side of the family entered the U.S. through Montreal, Canada. One of my ancestors on the ship was Euphemia Fairfull Chalmers who I believe married a George Chalmers. I know their is a connection between our side of the family and Thomas Chalmers (Scotland, Reformation of Church). Barbara and I are seeking more information about the Chalmers prior to 1800, as far back as possible. Do we still have relatives the Edinburgh area? Glad to see this site. Would love to hear from anyone having information.

Robert Walker Chalmers Mesa, AZ, USA
I come from a branch of the family with ties to Texas. My Great-Grandmother Loretta owned what was the 3rd largest ranch in Texas, outside of the town of Brady. My immediate family is scattered all over: Pennsylvania, New York, Texas, North Carolina, Washington, etc. Some rudimentary research has indicated that our branch of the Chalmers family may be related to that of President(s) Bush: Hence the middle name Walker, which I understand is traced back to a Confederate Army officer from Texas. Many of the family names I've seen listed here, however, are also familiar: Moira,(at least one relative w/ it spelled "Myra"), David, Thomas, Ross, Robert, Loretta, etc.

What a delight to find this site! I am a Chalmers by marriage but feel right at home because I have found many Janet Chalmers in the family. My husband and I live on Cape Cod in Massachusetts. He is Stephen Chalmers, son of Bruce Chalmers, b. 1907 in London and Ema Arnouts; son of Stephen Drummond Chalmers, b. 1878 in Woonona, Australia and Clara Rosenhain; son of John Chalmers, b. 1850 in Markinch, Fife, Scotland and Eliza Jane Drummond; son of George Chalmers, b. 1820 in Markinch and Catherine Hutchison; son of George Chalmers, b. 1774 in Markinch and Catherine Child nee Craig; son of Thomas Chalmers, b. 1751 in Dysart, Fife, Scotland and Agnes Brown; son of George Chalmers, b. 1721 in Markinch and Margaret Balfour; son of David Chalmers, b. abt 1688 of Markinch and Janet Barclay. As you all are, I am trying to dig further into the Chalmers ancestry and find living connections. We are enjoying contact with two sets of cousins in New South Wales. I look forward to returning to this website. I'd appreciate any research tips anyone can give me. I had no idea there were so many Chalmers looking for their roots. It looks like we're lucky that we know as much as we do!

Jonathan Chalmers Minneapolis MN 55044
For those of you looking for information about the Chalmers family that immigrated to Newbury, VT in the 1830's, I'm the direct male descendent of George and Christian Chalmers. The family was originally from the Kirkcaldy and Wemyss area in Fife. I've pieced a reasonable amount of the family history in Scotland. Unfortunately missing parish records for the early 18th century have made it impossible to conclusively link the family to Thomas Chalmers (although I have a pretty good idea where it is). Contact me if you want more info.

Sandra E.Paton Hill, Summit Hill, Pennsylvania, United States
Somehow Chalmers must have some connection with my family background. No matter what I look into it just keeps coming up on the screen. My father was born in Alva, Clackmannanshire, Scotland 6/21.1906 his parents were Alexander Paton,Sr., and Jessie MacDougall Tainsh Paton. Jessie's parents were George Tainsh, Jr., and Jessie MacDougall. Alex and Jessie were married December31,1904. They left from Glasgow aboard the ship Furnessia which flew a British Flag and they arrived along with their son in New York on May 1st,1911. They then headed for the coal regions of Pennsylvania. Alex,sr., was a miner in Scotland and continued his trade here in America. They first settled in a small town in Carbon County Pa., located on the south western end of the Pocono Mountains. After a year or so they moved 1 mile up the hill to a place called Summit Hill and made their home there the rest of their lives. Alex,Sr. died in December of 1944, Jessie died August,1962 and Alex, Jr., died December 17,1975. Both men died from the miner's disease of the lungs with other complications. I am very interested to find other relatives or connections with family members.

Karen Bowler/ NIchols, Oshawa, Ontario, Canada
I am looking for my grandfathers past before he came to Canada. I think he was born on Nov. 16 1985 in Liverpool, later moved to London City. His name is James Edward Nichols. He went to school at the Oxford University. Also at one time he was a guard at Buckingham Palace. I remember my aunts saying that he went to Capetown South Africa..family business? He had one brother who was killed a war. He met a woman named Maria Christiana Bougaartd, and Married her. His family did not approve of the marriage from what I understand.....she was a coloured woman. His father married a second time, and had more children. My grandfather boarded a ship called the Corinnthian, heading for Canada. Maria and James had a two year old son that was on the ship with them. I believe his name was Bertram. My grandfathers heart always belonged to England, he talked and recalled all that I could understand. He wore a green plaid smoking coat, and always smoked a pipe. His typewriter was at his side all his years. He was a gentleman and well educated. Anyone with information about my grandfathers family, would be greatly recieved. email me at Karailatto@yahoo.ca

Just thought I'd touch base with you did find another Dall to contact tho'. We (the Taylors) are also a sept of the Cameron clan. The music is lovely but wouldn't the bagpipes be more appropriate?

My grandmother had a number of sisters (Evelyn and ?) and a brother (David Yool Bowes), the latter having spent many years in the port wine trade in Oporto, Portugal, he was give many honors including the freedom of the city of London.

Kevin Chalmers, Falkirk, Stirlingshire, Scotland
Hi. I come from a line of the Chalmers family that as far back as I can tell came from around the Stirling area it was tradition it seemed for fathers called Thomas to call there first son William and fathers called William to call there first son Thomas, although my father Alan William Chalmers after coercion from my mother decided to break this tradition calling my older brother Brian and myself Kevin. The most prominent celebrity we can find in our family tree was a Thomas Chalmers who was employed as the town crier in Stirling some time in the early 1800's we have found some rather colourful documentation refering to him in the Stirling Library. I would be pleased with any information that could help me trace any common ancestors family members. Many thanks in advance. Kevin Chalmers.

David A. Seibert Lebanon, Connecticut, USA
Very interesting historical items. My 4th great grandfather, James Chambers, born in Fifeshire, Scotland, 1759 and died 1837 at Beaver County, Pennsylvania, U.S.A. His grandson wrote that his granddad, James, came to the colonies as a soldier, when the War for Independance broke out, he turned against the king and fought with the colonials. I have proven that he fought in the Washington County, Pennsylvania Militia and was accepted by the S.A.R., Sons of the American Revolution. Don't know where in Fife he was born and lived. Any help greatly appreciated. You do your ancestors, proud. Thanks, Dave Seibert.

David Doig Chalmers Bundanoon, NSW, Australia
I see from your site that you base the chalmers name from the french for room, I was always on the understanding that the name was derived from the name given to the bodyguard of Charles Stuart when he returned to france after Culloden. The name being the warriors from the sea or as the french would have said it the chal (warrior) mers (sea) and has nothing to do with any chamberlain or room that being a totally different name.
Hi John, Hi Cousin, great to see you have finally got our own website up and running. Thanks for all the help in the Hay/Chalmers connection.

I originally lived in Christchurch, New Zealand when Violet and I first made contact through our respective schools, then moved to Dannevirke New Zealand and finally to Hawkes Bay, New Zealand.

Interesting site for me. I've been engaged on research of my mother Catherine Baxter Dewar (m.s.Ramsay) who by coincidence was born in 1 Curate Wynd, the house shown on page 3 of your site. In 1916 my Grandparents (Ramsay) lived in this house and Catherine was born there on 11 November 1918. (Interestingly, my father was born at 4 School Wynd which was only yards away.) Many years later in the 50's I remember staying there with my Grandfather and having to endure the ordeal of washing in cold water and using the outside toilet...Hard times indeed. Andrew Ramsay died in that house on the 26th August 1962.

Ron Thompson, Ten Mile, Tennessee, USA
I'm interested to know if you have a DNA profile for the Thomsons of Fife? There is documentation which indicates that a congregation of Reformed Presbyterian Scots were transported to America by Col. Ninian Beall. He was from Largo, Fife. One document proves that Christopher Thomson, brother to my ancestor William, was a trustee of that church. The Rev. Nathaniel Taylor was the minister. Another document proves that my ancestor William Thomson was a gent from Edinburgh, Scotland which is nearby. Their brother Walter Thomson was a merchant in Edinburgh, Scotland whose son William was a Mariner based out of London, England. Walter's wife was named Margaret. Walter had a Maryland land grant but never migrated to America. The date of transport was between 1785 and 1790. My DNA profile is in the appendix linked from my web page. My e-mail address is available from that site. Also of interest is that the Chalmers family apparently migrated with the Thomsons across America. A Chalmers family purchased the James Thompson property about 1914 in Cherokee County, N. C. Your thoughts will be appreciated.

I am trying to put together some information about Our Chalmers descendants for our family before all is forgotten The great grandfather was James Chalmers his wife was Joan Ballantyne, information on son William who married Sarah Marlin in 1893 they had 2 sons James and Andrew ... Also James and Joans Daughter Jean would be helpful.
I am one of three sisters, my fathers name is Robert Barry Lionel Chalmers (aka Bobby) My mothers name is Audrey Rosette Elizabeth Chalmers (born Linden) My father has two older brothers Desmond and Delville. As far as I know they were all born in Rhodesia (Zimbabwe) My fathers parents were Arthur Sidney Chalmers and Sarah Penelope (Snyman) Chalmers. Arthur had one brother Robbie and five sisters; Elsie, Iris, Mary, Nellie and Muriel. Their father was born in Glasgow, not sure when. I am not 100% sure of this next info, apparently my g.g.g? grandmother travelled from Capetown across to the then Rhodesia by oxwagon and they were attacked by Zulus, she survived by hiding in the reeds of a river. If anyone has any further information or can verify or correct this story, I would really appreciate it. Looking forward to hearing some news!! Many thanks
