The ancient Royal Burgh of Queensferry sits on the southern shores of the Firth of Forth between the Forth Bridge and the Forth Road Bridge. Queensferry has a rich history which covers Queen Margaret, the development of the Royal Burgh, witchcraft, Covenanters, the building of the Forth Bridges and much, much more.
Queensferry History Group was formed in 1988 to stimulate an interest in local history, research and record the history of Queensferry and the surrounding area and, last but not least, to enjoy ourselves. We are a group of people of all ages and backgrounds who live in the area, some of us are even incomers!
