I am the GGGG grandson of William Sutherland (born Flotta 1770). His father is listed as a John Sutherland. It appears that William had two brothers, Robert (born Flotta 1771) and James (born Flotta 1780), and one sister Frances (born Flotta 1782). All four travelled to Gravesend, Kent between 1792 and 1805, perhaps via the weekly oyster smack which ran to London (Gravesend being the first port on the Thames) and all the Sutherlands in Gravesend are descended from William. Does any one know of any other relations of William, Robert, James and Frances and partilcularly of John Sutherland. Can the family be linked into any one elses family trees?
