NARRATIVE 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 Thorshaven—a 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 by George Hay, 1883)
