So.Ronaldsay's death records

Surnames: various
Hello to all So. Ronaldsay researchers:
just to let you know that in my own family research I have ordered many microfilm rolls of Civil Death Records for
the island, and actually transcribed for my own research
MANY, many people who died on So.Ronaldsay, for various years. I have also transcribed some earlier deaths from the OPR microfilm for so.Ronaldsay.
I am willing to do free "Look-ups" for you, in the records I have, just on the (potetially good) chance I may have an ancestor you are interested in, amongst my transcriptions.
Then I could give you both the data (my transcription) and also, of course, all its reference material, so that (if you
want) you can order said microfilm for yourself from your
local LDS Geneal.Library. --Sincerely, Lisa Conrad

Surnames: Cromarty, Cromartie
Do you see anything for or related to the last names Cromarty or Cromartie? I am looking specifically for ancestors of John William Cromartie (1792-Mar.5 1871). The dates I have may not be correct.

Surnames: CROMARTY
Annalee: Glad to get a request from someone! I've only received a few. I was starting to think that there are not that many So.Ron. researchers out there ... it 'flummoxed' me that I have not gotten inundated with requests!
These death records are public records, and I'll be glad to help anyone -- I may just have a research clue hidden for you in amongst this data I have. Who knows!
Death Records are so enlightening (give so many clues).

Anyway, I will look into your CROMARTY, as that is definitely a name I know I have.
Can you tell me any more names (Cromarty or otherwise)
you want to to look for? Or shall I look up all Cromarty's
I have, in case they are linked with yours.
I will keep you posted. If there is lots of info, I may either have to email you directly or snail-mail you the data.

Sutherland - S Ronaldsay

Surnames: Sutherland, Manson
I believe a John Sutherland b.abt 1788 in Reay, Caithness moved to South Ronaldsay, he was either accompanyed by his wife Catherine Manson or married her there. They had at least two sons, John and Sinclair(1), possibly a third son William and and maybe a daughter Johan from a second marriage. I know Sinclair(1) and his son Sinclair(2) and family went back to Caithness abt 1870. I was hoping you may be able to supply some information on John, his first wife Catherine or his possible second wife Jennet Sinclair?

Surnames: LEITH, CROMARTY
Lisa, I noticed your comment about the lack of responses to your offer. I am researching the LEITH and CROMARTY surnames in So. Ronaldsay, and have hit that proverbial stone wall , and can't get past 1799 . There weren't many LEITH in So. Ronaldsay cira 1800, so any death would be relevant. And just on the off chance that we may be researching the same surnames, I have included the family of Nicol LEITH and Margaret CROMARTY.

Hi Amy!
Do you have names, dates? This would help me to know the answer to your question. I have some families from the North Parish of So.Ronaldsay, and not just from 'the Hope.'

And I'll be talking to you soon on that other matter, too!
Best wishes, Lisa.

Hi Gwen!
Sorry, the surname NORN is not one I happen to have amongst my death records.
HOWEVER, in the So.Ronaldsay Old Parish records, a "William NORN" was a witness along with my 4th G-granddad, James MATCHES, for several couples' childrens' baptisms in the late 1700's and early 1800's.
It appears they (Wm.Norn & my Jas.Matches) both knew the following couples (of the North Parish of So.Ron.)----

Donald Bruce and Isobel Thomson;

James Bruce & Helen Linklatter;

Thomas Taylor & Barbara Wards;

Solomon Guthrie & 'Lizea' Duncan.
-Wm.Norn & Jas.Matches were the witnesses for the baptism of son, Robert, of Thomas Taylor/Barb.Wards in Aug.1796;
-Wm.Norn & Jas.Matches were the witnesses for baptism of daughter, Bettie, of Solomon Guthrie/Lizea Duncan;
-Wm.Norn a witness for baptism of Donald Bruce/Isobel Thomson's son, Edward;
-Jas.Matches was witness for several baptisms of children of Jas.Bruce/Helen (Ellen) Linklatter.
[Jas.Bruce & Donald Bruce were brothers, I believe, and both were witnesses for baptisms of children of my Jas.Matches. All lived in Hoxa, So.Ronaldsay.]

DON'T KNOW IF THIS HELPS YOU ANY, 'tho. I do not know to whom this William Norn was married, or if he had children (e.g. your Ann in 1829?).
Good luck!
