Dalgarno - The origin of

Hi Jeremy,

I read your reply to Steve Wilson re the origins of our name Dalgarno, and I am really interested in knowing the whole story. I am originally from a small town in the Highlands called Invergordon, but have recently moved to Bingley West Yorkshire. My grandad Ben Dalgarno, was the owner of the local Butchers in Invergordon, before giving it up, and retiring to live in Inverurie near Aberdeen. My dad Dedrick Dalgarno, who now lives in Tacoma WA. USA, got me interested in finding the origins of my name. I remebered him saying that the Dalgarnos arrived on the East coast of Scotland around 1215ad, and that alot of them settled in the Aberdeen area. If you could give me some accurate info, instead of my dad's own imagination, re our origins, it would be much appreciated.

Cheers,

Austin Dalgarno
