The Wishart Society exists to support members of the Wishart Family throughout the world. Based in Edinburgh Scotland, we can help you search for your family tree, provide historical information about
famous Wisharts, supply the Wishart Tartans and Crest, and so on.
Perhaps our most famous ancestor is George Wishart, the Protestant Martyr (pictured right). He was born at Pitarrow House
in 1513, and burnt at the stake in St Andrews on March 1st, 1546. To find out more, click here
