"Queensferry (the Passage of the Queen) derives its name from Margaret, Queen of Malcolm Canmore, a Princess celebrated for her charitable and beneficent virtues. She frequented the passage much, and was a great patroness of the place; hence the name by which it is now distinguished, certainly originated." (from a Statistical Account of Scotland)

Queensferry History Group was formed in 1988 to stimulate an interest in local history, research and record the history of Queensferry and the surrounding area and, last but not least, to enjoy ourselves. We are a group of people of all ages and backgrounds who live in the area, some of us are even incomers!

We welcome new members to join our group. Equally we want to hear from interested people world/net wide, who have information, photographs, memories, anecdotes or anything pertaining to Queensferry and the surrounding area.
