about

Excerpt from Genealogical Memoirs of the Scottish House of Christie: Compiled From Family Papers and the Public Records

IN his Scottish Dictionary, Dr J amieson conjectures that the Scottish word Cristie is derived from the Danish cmset; and Mr Ferguson is of opinion that the English prefix cm'st may be the Frankish form of the Teutonic Mist, to brandish a sword.l It is more probable, we conceive, that the surnames Christie and Christison are derived from the Danish baptismal name Christian or Christigern. A few families of the name in the Isle of Man distinctly claim a Norse or Danish origin. The chief families of the sept may be traced to the north-eastem coast.
