Family Tree
Hello, I'm researching my family tree and found out my Great Grandfather X4 was born in Stromness in 1773. His name was Alexander Mowat, the trail ends with him. I'm wondering if you might have some ideas of where I might find any records of his parents, or family history of any kind. I'm so mesmerized by Stromness, I really hope to visit in the future.
Thank you for your time,
your possible Canadian Cousin Shannon
Cheers

Hi Shannon, I'm uncertain if anyone has replied to your query . This website has been archived for some time and I thought I'd explore it again since I've heard it has a new server and is more reliable. . There is a record of headstones in the kirkyard in the museum
Emailing the museum directly.. custodain@stromnessmuseum... see facebook or if I'm successful it'll be on the front page soon.. would get a quick answer about Mowats recorded there. or email me and I'll forward it to the custodian. The family History society might also have information . googling easiets way to find them
Hope this helps

Hi, my husband's great grandfather John Flett was one of those people hired by the Hudson's Bay co. A resident of Stromness, he came to Victoria, Vancouver Island in 1842 on the ship the Harpooner. He lived in victoria for many years until he took a colonial land exemption in Maple Bay on Vancouver Island. He came back to Stromness to marry his second cousin Janet who then travelled to Vancouver Island where they raised their family. They both died on Vancouver Island. John in 1885. He is buried in the family plot in Ross Bay cemetery in Oak bay. He was down to victoria from the Flett family farm and in the hospital whenhe passed. Janet in buried in the Maple Bay cemetery in the Flett plot. John Flett was known as an honest man. There was a dispute about a cow. Our then governor james douglas said that if John Flettsays it is his cow then it is his cow.
