Although Stroma is classed as part of Caithness, the Orkney Family History Society has transcripts of Stroma census from 1841 - 1901 and also gravestone inscriptions for Stroma on their website (members section).

There is a David Sabiston age 20 listed in the 1851 census at Graemsay

 1851, Graemsay, District: 4, Property No: 43 - South Clates

Gorseness is in Rendall so this would fit.

Orkney Family History Society is an excellent source of information

Orkney / Re: Saunders
« on: Sunday 12 February 12 18:56 GMT (UK)  »
I have just discovered a link in my tree to Saunders family of Kirkwall.  Ann Saunders, daughter of James Saunders and Margaret Bews married David Flett in 1794.  The marriage was in Kirkwall but it appears that their children were born in Firth.   It is an unusual name for Orkney so presume we must be connected somehow.  Glad to share what little info I have.

His wife Betsy is at Roadside, Stronsay in the 1851 census and is listed as a widow.  She was born in Sanday.
