This surname comes from the given name Peter, in Latin Petrus, in Greek Πέτρος, taken from πέτρος meaning ‘a rock’.
The surname was relatively common in Angus, as well as Kincardineshire and Aberdeen.
In 1636, John Peter, a follower of the Earl of Mar, was charged with possession of stolen property from dealings with the outlawed Macgregors.
