I think you will find that jock o pickie was a John Newlands who had two brothers (that i know off) Robert and William, He will have grandchildren living in orkney today who will know much more than I do. I'am the grandson of Robert Newlands and I'am also very interested in the Newlands name. Good luck Liza

Hi, I've just come across this website and I am very interested in my family history. My grandparents were from Orkney and lived there until around 1950's then moved and lived in Inverness. I know they were called Betsy & George Newlands but that's as much as I know. Does anyone know where I could find more Info for the Newlands family tree in Orkney? Many thanks Luke Newlands
