Purves family origins are uniquely circumscribed to the South East regions of Scotland and the family mostly remained in the area until the 19th Century when emigration to Canada occurred and in the later parts the 1800′s when migration to Newcastle and Liverpool/Manchester started because of decline of the rural economy and industrialisation ‘opportunities’. The spelling variant Purvis appears to be an Anglisation of the name during the 18/19th Century during early migration south to England with Purves being the norm from the 16th Century in Scotland
