The village in Scotland is Avoch in the Black Isle Ross-shire. This is 10 miles from Inverness. Originally a fishing community and Patience's were one of the first fishermen approx. 1720 they go back to in Avoch.We have found a Patience chateau in SW France in St. Avit near Mont de marsan. We believe they originated in France.
Our Patience's and the other fishing families have their own dialect - completely unique in this area.
