Links between The peoples of Flanders and Scotland have existed, it’s believed, since the 11th century.  Tradition has it that Flemish influences in Newhaven are suggested by some of the surnames as well as the architecture and the pan-tiled roofs of the fishermen’s houses.


Research on the Flemish connection in Scotland is currently underway by the University of St. Andrews’ Institute of Scottish Historical Research.  We are grateful to Mr John Irvine and Prof. Alex Fleming who have permitted us to reproduce their Newsletter here > > > and other information on present findings here > > >.


We would encourage visitors to the website who have information to give on this topic to contact John or Alex on the e-mail addresses given on the Newsletter.  If that information is relevant to the Newhaven-on-Forth website, we would be pleased if you could share it with us too.
