Abercrombie History

William de Abercromby did homage to Edward I of England in 1296 for his lands in the parish of Abercromby, Fife. The lineage of the family passed to the house of Abercromby of Birkenbog in Banffshire in the early 1600s.

The history of the Abercrombies is intimately connected to religious discord, not only because the lands in Banff were granted to Alexander Abercromby by the Bishop of Aberdeen in 1362.
