The Purvis Family Genealogy Pages John Purvis


Welcome to the Purvis family website.

The website contains genealogies and biographical information on several Purvis and Purves families as well as on certain inter-related families.

You are free to access basic information and to send me messages with enquiries or relevant information on yourself or family. It helps if you relate this to any appropriate entry in this data base, by quoting the Purvis Identification number.

I hope you enjoy using this website, and that you may be able to link up with other members of your wide flung family.


Your input to this website in the form of corrections or additional information is greatly valued. For this reason it is made avalaible free to all who are interested. However, it does cost a lot to maintain the website, to keep contact with such a large family and to carry out research and updating. Contributions towards these costs would be greatly appreciated. They can be sent in the form of US Dollar or £Sterling cheques to John Purvis, Gilmerton, St Andrews, KY16 8NB. If you want to send donations in euros, please contact for instructions.
