Research Notes

Nisbet is the usual spelling in Scotland (Nesbit in England, Nesbitt Ireland, Nisbett moved from Scotland to England thought to give social status). Since we have no idea what LNAB is, we use Nisbet as this more often than not ,indicates a birth in Scotland for this surname.

Regarding: The original Chart, which says "based on a genealogy made by by John Hooke Campbell, Esquire, Lyon King of Arms, and Percy Nisbet, Esq.," that the charters are mentioned [1]

  • The original source of the charters mentioned in 1489 so far has not been found.
  • It does not say how much of the genealogy can be credited by John Hooke Campbell, Esquire, Lyon King of Arms or how much by Percy Nisbet.
  • Claims James married __Campbell, a daughter of the Family of Loudon needs documentation
  • Mentions a Charter, dated 28th day of June 1505 from John Campbell of Loudon, of parts of the lands of Dalquhillane & Horsehill in the Co of Ayr ____so far has not been found
