Hello my name is Stephen Thomas and I live in South Wales UK. My great grandfather James Fentie was born in 1856 and my grandmother, Jane Fentie was born in 1892 in Fraserborough, Aberdeenshire. My mother Jeannie Fentie Rennie was born in 1922 in New Pitsligo but she moved to South Wales when she married my father.
I would be very interested in sharing information between ourselves if you would be happy to do so.
Our family has been trying to find out more about our name (Fenty) and it’s origins. I’m excited to come across your site!
Would you know anything about James Fenty (Scottish mason). We are told that he travelled to Canada. He worked on the very large Banff Springs hotel in Banff, Alberta. He eventually moved to Saskatoon and built a stone bridge and a stone cairn to honour the settlers to the city. He is my Great Grandfather. My grandfather was William Fenty, my father Robert(Bob) Alexander Fenty. My brother is Brent Terell Fenty.
We were told by a Barbadian Fenty, who was working in Calgary, Alberta, that my great grandfather’s uncle was a merchant sailor who settled in Barbados and was the start of the Fenty’s there. We’d like to know if anyone knows more about this?
Brad Fenty, comment below on your webpage, looks like we are related! It would be great to connect.
This is the first time I ever saw anything about the Fenty’s my Great Grandfather was a Stone mason from Aberdeen and came to Canada and worked on Lake Louis Hotel and tea house, building the memorial gates in Saskatoon in front of RuH hospital. Lots of others... I play the bagpipes and solo at Canada’s largest indoor Remembrance day ceremony and l

Thank you for this beautiful website. I referenced it in a presentation on the origin of name of Robyn Rihanna Fenty, the popular singer, as a means to introduce migration and sugar production to my students at City College in New York...a fascinating history. Have also walked Hadrian's Wall, with the Picts on the other side! One day make it to Scotland.

Interesting to read about the history
Phillip Fenty been researching Fenty name for 50 years. Have been to Aberdeen, Banff, and Portsoy. Thanks for site.
I've just arrived to Edinburgh to pursue my postgraduate degree for one year, and this site has provided invaluable information to begin my journey in discovering my family's history. Cheers!
I've often wondered about the origins of the Fenty name. My father came from Barbados where the name is quite common. Not common in the other Caribbean i
Islands. Its good to know that it is Scots in origin - THANK YOU!
