My gg=grandmother was Mary Velzian married to john kirkness( father William Velzian Mother Margaret Cantley) - Elizabeth Velzian sister. Can I help?
Thanks so much for your reply.  Actually I think I photographed your g,g,grandmother's grave last year when I was in Orkney.  Did that Elizabeth Velzian havetwo little boys before she married Robert Eunson?  Or have I got the wrong person?  I look forward to your reply.

Yes she had two children before she married - her mother also had children after her husband died - no re-marraige!  Times must have been hard, no work for widows!

Wow!  Then after years of searching, I have finally found ( for sure), my g,g grandmother.  On my g,grandfather's marriage certificate, it has that John Linklater is his father and Eliza Velzian (spelt Vellyan) is his mother.  I wonder why Eliza and John didn't marry?  Did he go to Canada?  Are you related to these Velzians? Any more information you have would be great.
Thanks for making my day!!

I'm also very interested in the Velzian/Cantley links. The other son Elizabeth Velzian had before marriage was Robert GW Allan - who went to Australia then begun a line of Allan's in New Zealand.
