scottclanbadge.jpg Although many of us do not share the name Scott, we share the privilege of being part of the Scott clan. Traditionally, the family unit was the most important bond that drew people together. In the twentieth century, we have the ability to travel around the globe with relative ease; however, our ancestors generally lived and died in the same parish in which they were born, and likely the same parish in which their parents were born, and so on. It is that traditional geographic stability that makes the name Scott so interesting.


Our branch of the Scott Clan comes from John Scott who married Agnes Mills.  We are descended from their son, Joseph.  Joseph became a Sea Captain sailing the seas in great schooners.  Through his many travels as a Sea Captain, he met and married Ann Dupong who hailed from Ireland.

One son of Joseph and Ann, Hugh Dupong Scott met and married Elizabeth Logan on June 8 1899 in Scotland. Hugh came to Canada in 1914 to build ships for the Canadian Government in the First World War. His wife and family emigrated to Canada at the close of the war in 1918.

Now, come with me as we travel through time to see who your ancestors were and to the present to know who your relatives are...........
