“Christie” is a surname of Scottish origin. The name is derived from the personal name Christie, which is a pet form of the personal name Christian.[1] At the time of the British Census of 1881 [1], the relative frequency of the surname Christie was highest in Kincardineshire (43.7 times the British average), followed by Shetland, Forfarshire, Fife, Aberdeenshire, Perthshire, Banffshire, Elginshire, Clackmannanshire and Haddingtonshire. In Scotland the Christies are considered to be a sept of Clan Farquharson [2].

A Thomas Glover, a hatmaker, shows up in Alexandria VA in the late 1780's.

A Thomas stayed in an inn in Winchester VA shortly thereafter.
Was that to buy fur for his hats?

If he was related to the Glovers of 18th c., Frederick County VA, would he have stayed in an inn?

Any info on colonial Glovers in Fairfax or Alexandria would be welcome. Many thanks, Denis
