One my ancestors was Robert PYE, born around 1803 in
Dysart (Pathhead), Fife. He was a cabinetmaker by
trade and married Ann Wright MCGREGOR in 1826 in
Cramond, Midlothian and in Edinburgh. His death
certificate hasn’t been found yet but he probably died
in Australia or New Zealand because most of the family
moved to Melbourne, Australia in the mid 1850’s. The
name ‘George’ was prominent among the children &
descendants of Robert so maybe his father was a George

Robert’s children were: Margaret PYE (1829,
Edinburgh); Isabella PYE (ABT. 1831, b. in London,
England); George PYE (abt. 1832, b. in London);
Harriet PYE (abt. 1838, Edinburgh); Henry Weston PYE
(1842, Edinburgh); and Ann PYE (1845, Edinburgh).

I don’t know how he came to be in London in the early
1830’s. The name ‘WESTON’ is possibly in his ancestry.

I would like to link up with anybody who is working on
the PYEs from around Dysart, Kirkcaldy etc. or anybody
who has information on the ancestors of my Robert PYE.
