Many of our Finley Ancestors were from the area around Perth and Fifeshire.

John and Andrew were in Perthshire in the late 1400's.
James was listed as "of Cupar" (West of St. Andrews) but in the late 1500's was in Balchrystie, Fifeshire.
James was born in 1631 in Newburn Parish, Balchrystie, Fifeshire.

Father Scott Archer wrote:

"Newburn Parish, is just a little northwest of old Balchrystie. This is not a great distance from where Largo, Scotland is today, and a short distance from Largo Bay in Fife. It's a lovely area, and not too far from St. Andrew's University, etc."

Alexander Finley was born in 1667 at Inchervie, St. Andrew's.
