I am helping my friend Kevin Nisbet of Tauranga collate his family history. His great grandparents were George Scott Nisbet and Sophia Sanson who were married in Wellington New Zealand in 1880, his grandparents were George Scott Nisbet and Ellen Sparkes - any history previous to that would be so welcome on the nisbet, Sanson and Sparkes lines, I am told the Nisbet family emigrated from Kelso Scotland but I do not know when, do hope to hear from one of the many Nisbet families out there, what a wonderful site.

To Carrie Moczynsli.
Dear Carrie it was a lovely surprise to find your name 'Carrie'. My daughter-in-law is Dr. Carrie Nisbet.
I look at all the Nisbet names and usually don't look twice as I have a John Nisbet, Alistair Nisbet, Robert Nisbet and so on.
We have two grand daughters that I need to add ... Charli May Nisbet and Sienna Elizabeth Nisbet.

To our Editor. It was so interesting to receive the North American News with all the DNA Testing. Thankyou for the copy

Hello, I have been searching for patented inventions for my gr gr Grandfather John Nisbett of Belhaven, Dunbar. Thought I had found them and had them sent over - alas! Not my John Nisbett.

So, is this your John Nisbet?

Hello, I have recently joined the N/N society and within just a very short time have been given more information on my line from Ian Nisbet than I have ever found in the last couple of years. Thank you so much Ian.

I am looking for my half sister Fiona Nisbet who was born in NSW in the 60s I think. Our father is Adrian Home Nisbet born in Brisbane on 12th November 1923. We had or have two aunts Patricia and Dorothy.

If anybody has any information on Fiona or if you read this Fiona, I would dearly love to hear from you.

Cheers Carrie

I joined recently and enjoy checking the the latest additions to the site.
I am descended from Marion Herkis Nisbet, who married my g-g'father, William John Charles Humbley in Sydney, 1873.
Marion's brother James Hume Nisbet also known as Herkis Hume Nisbet, in art catalogues, was an author and artist.
My wonderful family gave me one of his watercolours, 'The Ruined Abbey', for a recent brithday - it is beautiful and I am very fortunate.

My great grandmother Jessie (Jennet) was brought to Australia in 1849 by her parents, Archibald Nesbitt & Mary (Hall) with brothers James and John. In 1857 she married George Thompson and had 4 children. After George died in a mining accident near Maryborough VIC in 1864 she married my gr grandfather John Geddes. I'm very excited to find this site as I haven't been able to find any rellies at all. Maggie
