MAINLAND, George b.1773
« on: Monday 17 July 17 10:07 BST (UK) »
Hi there,

Is there anybody out there especially from Rousay and Wyre who has info about the George Mainland/ Giles Harrold family from Testaquoy and Bu farms on Wyre, Rousay. Early 1700's.
George MAINLAND II (grandson of George and Giles) b. 1773 is by a process of elimination the best candidate to be my ancestor.
I do know about the 50 year gap in the Rousay records but was hoping that somewhere someone may have a clue that would connect this George to the one I know as my Ancestor .(see below)
 
In the East End of London, England in 1810, GEORGE MAINLAND a Master Mariner married a MARY HALCRO(W).

Any ideas ? MAPS
Mainland [Orkney/Middlesex], Hill [London/Bristol], Adamson [Fife], Nicholson [Fifi], Tippett [Cornwall/Devon],
Heays [Tasmania/England], Reid [England/Scotland], Halcrow, Williams and many others.
