My wife's ancestors - Noltie - Contents


Noltie of Alford, Aberdeenshire, Scotland



The original German spelling was meant to be Nolte [Henry Noltie].
Nolte is still a common name in that area today.
Our line starts with:


--- Nolte,
iron maker or founder,
think of the Germanic state of Hesse-Cassel in the Holy Roman Empire (see below),
had issue:


  1. (son) Nolte,
    went to America.


  2. Henry Noltie,
    born c.1740, Germany,
    [Noltie family memoir] says he was born in "Hesse Cassel" or "Hessie Cassell", on the border of Germany and Switzerland,
    this must be the state of Hesse-Cassel (capital Kassel), but this was in C Germany, nowhere near Switzerland,
    settled in Scotland, name changed to Noltie,
    [Kirstine Holmes] has him as "Nolty", but Edinburgh street directory says "Noltie" and all the papers of his son have him as "Noltie".
