Craigie family of Shetland and Orkney Islands
« on: Sunday 27 September 15 00:13 BST (UK) »
Hi, I'm looking for any info or relatives to step forward to exchange any info on members of the Craigie family mainly based in the Shetland and Orkney Islands and mainly north scotland. My 3x great grandfather was William Flett Craigie (1853 - 1910) and his wives Isabella Leonard or Williamina Spence. He had 9 children with each wife totally to 18 children including my 2x great grandmother Elizabeth Helen Craigie (1883).

William Flett Craigie b. Orkney
1853 etc etc - moved to Lerwick, Shetland.
Please refer to the following:  http://www.bayanne.info/Shetland/getperson.php?personID=I122359&tree=ID1

Not sure, but did not look further as all the children are shown on above site.  However, usually they also have some ancestors & descendants.

Further info - Faher of William Flett Craigie was James Craigie b 1811 in Tog Rousay, OKI, & his mother was Barbara (???) Craigie b. 1812 d 1892 (at 80 yrs).  If you spend some time in the site, am sure you will find lots of interesting material.
