ON PRINT - Ethiehaven,
in the neighbourhood of the old church of
Ethie, is a pleasantly situated fishing hamlet.
It is sometimes called Torrenshaven, and it
has been suggested that this word is a corruption
of Thorshavena name supposed to mark
the place as a Scandinavian settlement. But
the suggestion is incorrect. 'Torrenshaven'
is a comparatively modern appellation, and
there seems to be no room for doubt that it
is derived from a family of the name of Thorn
or Torn, who long took a leading position
in the place.
In the churchyard of Inverkeilor there is
a tombstone which bears to have been 'erected
by Catherine Torn, in memory of her father
Francis Torn, shipmaster in Ethiehaven. (Notes
