CAVAYE family & kinship

NOT YET INCORPORATING CAVAYE NEWS 

 In the year 1800 in the West Indies,

 Haitian refugee Claire CAVAYÉ was 17 

and Scots-born trader William CATHCART was 25.

Their story is told in Dorothy Cavaye’s book “Need a Body Cry?”

 Their sons William and Robert were the first generation of the CAVAYE FAMILY

which now reaches around the world.  

 

In 1964, 1984, 2000 and 2009 Cavayes got together in family gatherings in Edinburgh.  Maybe another big one will happen soon.

DOROTHY AT 82

Dorothy Kelly (fourth generation Cavaye, a Portobello Cavaye) climbed to the top of Arthur's Seat and back from Duddingston Loch on her 82nd birthday in 2007. She was following a family tradition begun by her maternal great grandmother, Jane Torrance (Baillie) in advanced years 100 years ago, which her mother Norah Cavaye (Torrance) had also honoured, earning an Edinburgh Weekly picture and headline Granny Norah at the Top in October 1969.

My researches began many years ago…

 

 

In fact, in France, the Cavayés are mostly found around Carcassone
