Strays, 1876-1899
 

 This is one of two web pages pertaining to a few
 "stray" deceased, for years 1855-1899, who were
 So. Ronaldsay- or Burray-born, but who died
 elsewhere in Scotland.


 THIS LIST IS NOT A COMPLETE LIST OF ALL "strays"...

   the names listed below are only those I have located so far.

YEAR - Page No. - Entry No. - Name of Deceased - Place of Death - Age at Death

    Widower of 'Betsy RYRIE' --
        {
record has 'Betsy RYRIE' as the spouse of 'James' Sutherland, but I cannot find a
            marriage record anywhere for a James Sutherland to Betsy/Elizabeth Ryrie/Rorie

1876- Page 6 #17 --Mary (BROWN) McKENZIE--[Inkstack, Dunnet/age 49] --
 {where born: South Ronaldsay} 
    Married to William McKENZIE --

   parents: Edward BROWN/Janet 'CLUSTE[N]' -- 
    Informant: 'John' McKENZIE, 'Widower'.
        {
record has the signature of a 'John' McKENZIE as the Informant, but the word, 'Widower',
            is shown under that signature in the Registrar's distinct handwriting, -- by my research,
             Mary BROWN most definitely married William McKENZIE, and not a man named 'John'...
              so I wonder if perhaps the Registrar prepped the register entry with the word, 'Widower',
               thinking that William would be signing the death register - but, in the end, maybe a
                relative of William's signed it instead?
