Hary Clouston and Ann Flett, Stenness, Orkney

I am a descendant of Hary (maybe Harry) Clouston, a shipwright (son of Edward Clouston and Isabella Knarston) and Ann Clouston née Flett (daughter of Magnus Flett and Katherine Eunson), of Stenness although they married at Kirkwall in 1811. Hary Clouston may have died prior to 1841 and Ann died at Kirkwall in 1861.
Hary and Ann had the following children, all christened in the parish of Stenness: William (1812); Margaret (1815); John Knarston (1816); and Jane/Jean Moar, my great-great-grandmother (1819-1894) who married John Louttit in 1842 and they emigrated to Victoria, Australia in 1852.
I was in Orkney earlier this year and am now keen to make contact with any descendants of this Clouston/Flett family. I have a great deal more information on Hary's and Ann's ancestors going back quite a few generations.
