My father was Alexander Newlands, born in Stornoway. His mother was a Williamina McFie, born in Orkney to Helen ( Nellie ) Newlands, who married a William Newlands.
Helen Newlands was of Stromness in Orkney.
Her father was a Isaac McFie.
My Aunt lives at present in Inverness, and ties a history together that includes Newlands, McFie, and Higgins' together.
My ancestors are rumoured to have come originally from Norway. As i only have a little information, I would welcome any info you may be able to share.
