These pages focus on the Bissett's of New Brunswick; Decendants of Anne and Andrew.
The background of the sidebars is one of five versions of the Bisset Tartan. There's also a version of the Bissett Coat of Arms, to the left. Place your mouse over the image to see two interpretations based on the same ancient description. The family motto is the war cry: "ABSCISSA VIRESCIT". You can also sneak a peek at a very rare book written in 1877, called "The History of The Beauly Priory", which contains some amazing history of a few early Bissett's.
If you're a Descendant of Anne and Andrew, we'd like to hear from you. To make contact with long lost cousins and get help with your research, join the WORLDWIDE Bissett discussion group. Instructions can be found at "Bev Barney's Bissett Family" web page. Bev's page also contains a "New Brunswick Bissett Family Data Base". If you're unsure of which Bissett line you belong to, you can also check Tom Giammo's "The Bissett Family of Nova Scotia" web site. Both Bisset/t lines are welcome to take part, particularly since so much of our history crosses paths and parallels each others.
For references to Early Bissetts, you can review an article from "Munro Eagle", the magazine of the Clan Munro, USA - written by Malcolm Hamilton, whose ggggrandmother was Janet Bissett [Inverness]. There is a link to that article and everything else I've referred to, in the header and footer of this website.
