Spelling of Surname

Various spellings of last name are found as is the norm. Nisbet (Nisbet of this Ilk) is claimed to be correct spelling for this family surname. It changed after they moved to England end of 1700s, to Nesbitt. The records of the Lyon Register in Edinburgh relating to the arms of the family show continuously the spelling as Nisbet '. Giving the best consideration to the whole problem and with the assent of those qualified to express an opinion, the author holds the view that Nisbet ' is the correct spelling of the name and can properly be adopted and resumed by all those who are descended from Nisbet of that Ilk.
