Surname Saturday - Boa

It's Saturday once again, so that means it's Surname Saturday, a daily blogging prompt from Genabloggers.  Since I'm going alphabetically through the names in my family tree, I'm at "B".  The Boa line runs on my mom's side of the tree through her mother.  This line also runs back to Prince Edward Island in Canada to Scotland.

I haven't done a lot of work on this line, and the information I have is from research done by other family members.  When my mom gave me the folder with all the research papers in it, there wasn't any documentation.  I have some of it documents, mainly in the US and Canada.  Slowly but surely I'll have the rest of the line documented.  I'm looking forward to finding out how early in Scotland the Boa line originated and if they came from anywhere else.

I've always felt an affinity to Scotland, and now I know why.

  1. Re: Boa surname, I've been told that the name has Norse/Viking origins. My husband's family are from NE Scotland (Sutherland) and his aunt kept referring to a guy called Bertie Boa who was related by marriage to her family. I asked how the name was spelled as quite unusual and not typically Scottish. She said Boa and that it was originally Norse origin. Hearsay though...never checked this out. Was browsing internet on car journey. Track o radio by Alfie Boe, made us curious about name and found your post. Nothing on web to support hearsay...


Hi There. Thanks for visiting. I enjoy and appreciate your comments.
