Borenich Burial Ground

(Family History in the Parish of Blair Atholl)

Borenich Burial Ground

Borenich Burial ground, Strathtummel, Perthshire, Scotland

Borenich burial ground is in a field on the north side of Loch Tummel, not far from the Queen's View. Most people give it scarcely a glance as they drive along the road towards Tummelbridge, but the curious sometimes stop and walk down the hill to have a closer look. Probably they are surprised to find that the burial ground has a visitor's book and information leaflets.

However it is obvious, from entries in the visitor's book, that some people are visiting the burial ground in the hope of tracing their ancestors. The information leaflet can do no more than scratch the surface in this context, so this web-site has been established to assist those interested in the families who once lived in this part of Strathtummel to discover their roots. This web-site contains historical information about the burial ground, and relates what is known about the people buried there, including marriages, births and census returns.

The surname of 'Gordon' is not common in Blair Atholl parish and it would seem that with one exception they can be traced back to Glen Fincastle, parish of Dull. Although some branches remained in Scotland, two branches emigrated to Canada - the Brudenell Pioneers, and the 'Zorra' Gordons, parents of the writer Ralph Connor.

The descendants of the Gordon families from Glen Fincastle.
