I am trying to locate immediate descendants of Alice King (deceased) formerly of Holmlavoe House, Stromness, Orkney Isles, KW16 3AG. I have a great deal of research on several of her ancestors (Watt family), many of whom came to Canada during the nineteenth century.

I knew Alice, but I don't have information on her descendants. I am, however, trying to learn more about her ancestors, especially William and Alexander Watt, for research I have been doing about their connections to the fur trade in the "Nor' Wast." I would be grateful if you are able to help with a few questions.

I too knew Alice, but have lost contact with her three daughters. I know little of her HBC ancestors other than their basic genealogical details, but have extensively researched her ggg grandfather William Watt 1730-1810. I am happy to answer questions, though I don't think this William had any HBC connections.

Thanks for your message. I am trying to reconstruct Alice's genealogy, to see who actually married (William, Alexander) and what happened to other siblings. I know that James never returned to Orkney. Cheers, Patricia
