Sutherlands can certainly be a challenge to pin down....give me a unique last name any day  ;)
Er ..... According to Personal Names in Scotland, published by the Registrar General for Scotland, Clark was the 14th commonest surname in the ScottishBMD indexes in 1990 (903 occurrences), and Sutherland was 56th (436 occurrences) ....

I'll get my coat .... :)

Ha ha Forfarian...indeed! I reckon those Sutherlands all live in and around Caithness though ;D

My Clarks aren't Scottish, but the name is probably even more common in good ol' England where they hail from! Don't even get me started on them  ::)

Yes, it was the 7th commonest surname in Highland Region, but only 106 of the 436 were in Highland.

There is or was a web site where you could plot the distribution of surnames from the 1881 census, but I haven't been able to find it today.
