The village of Old Deer nestles in a beautiful wooded location on a bend of the river Ugie and close to Aden Country Park. This unique spot, a gentle landscape in an otherwise exposed part of North East Scotland, was where the early Pictish Monastery of “Deir” provided a focal point of Christianity in this corner of Scotland. The early Monastery, which was in all probability, constructed with local timber and thatch, leaves no trace today. It was, however, like all Christian Monasteries of this period, a place of learning and a place of refuge. Manuscripts brought from Iona and Ireland would have been studied and copied between the 9th and 12th centuries. During the 12th century a Cistercian Monastery, whose ruins we know today as the Abbey of Deer, gradually replaced the Pictish Monastery. - from the Book of Deer Project

Deer Abbey was a Cistercian monastery in Buchan, Scotland.[1] It was founded by 1219 AD with the patronage William Comyn, jure uxoris Earl of Buchan,[2] who is also buried there. There was an earlier community of Scottish monks or priests. The notitiae on the margins of the Book of Deer record grants made to the Scottish religious community in the 12th century and a claim that it was founded by Saint Columba and Saint Drostan.[3] The old religious community was probably absorbed by the new foundation. The history of the abbey after the 1210s is obscure until the 16th century, when it was beginning to be secularized. The abbey was turned into a secular lordship for Commendator Robert Keith II (becoming Lord Altrie) in 1587. - Wikipedia

Dalgarno

This unusual name is of Scottish origin, and is a locational surname deriving from the lands of Dalgarnock in Dumfriesshire, although the old family of Dalgarno of that Ilk were based in Aberdeenshire. The name is thought to mean "the cultivated field, land", or "the garden land", from the Gaelic "dail", field, and "gairneoireacht", horticulture. There have been a number of variant spellings of the surname recorded since the 15th Century, among them Dalgarnowch (1417), Dalgarnocht (1571), Dilgarno (1623) and Dalgardno (1627). There is a record of the misfortune suffered by one Adam de Dalgarnok, an Aberdeen merchant, in 1370, when his goods were "plundered" by the English, contained in the Public Records Office for Scotland. Alexander Dalgarno was a canon of the cathedral of Machar, Aberdeen, in 1386. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of William de Dalgarnoc, which was dated 1262, in the "Papal Registers referring to Great Britain and Ireland", during the reign of King Alexander 111, known as "The King of Scotland", 1249 - 1286... - From Surname DB

Isobel Dalgarno's father may have been Thomas Delgardo. Thomas Dalgarno and his wife (not named) may have had at least five children born / baptised in Longside: William (b. June 12, 1738); Isabell (b. May 1, 1740); Jean (b. Aug 17, 1741); ISABELL (b.  Feb 15, 1745); and Alexander (b. Feb 22, 1753). - Scotlands' People
