The following is an extract courtesy of; Migration to South Australia in 1851 by James M Irvine Member No 96
The immediate reason for this migration from Shapinsay was undoubtably the “removal” of tenants, the “squaring” of the land and other agricultural improvements which the new laird of Shapinsay, David Balfour, and his factor, Marcus Calder, commenced in 1848 (Mary Zawadzki 1986, The Balfours and Balfour Castle p20). “As a result of all these improvements, life in Shapinsay became somewhat easier than it used to be. With the laird’s encouragement and assistance, some of the tenants and evidently some servants, left Shapinsay to try for an even better life in Australia” (Foden op.cit., p61). These migrations contributed to a fall in Shapinsay’s population from 935 in 1841 to 898 in 1851, before rising again to 973 in 1861 (Barclay op.cit., p19). "But why did these migrants choose South Australia? For this we have to go back a few years to a religious dispute on Shapinsay (Paul Sutherland 1985, The Laird, the Factor and the Elders: Change and Stress in Shapinsay 1847) which led the emigration of one of the elders on the island, William Skethaway, to South Australia. He probably chose this colony because it had become a popular destination for religious dissenters (Douglas Pike 1967, Paradise of Dissent South Australia 1829- 1857). He arrived at Port Adelaide in December 1849 as an assisted passenger with eight children, but now a widower, and presumably had then written back to his former neighbours that there were good employment opportunities for non-skilled immigrants - exactly what many Shapinsay folk were soon to be seeking. (I am grateful to Robert Janbmaat for the facts above). But while this exodus from Shapinsay was significant locally, these migrants only accounted for one in four of those who left Orkney for Adelaide in 1851. For these other Orcadians perhaps the Shapinsay folk had “spread the word”; perhaps it was just that this destination had become “the” place to migrate to: certainly at this time books were being published in UK on migrating to Australia (Robert Hughes 1987, The Fatal Shore p557). The passenger lists suggest that many of the Orcadians (and no doubt others) migrated in groups of relatives and neighbours. Many of the single persons bear the same surname as families on the same voyage. Maybe the John Heddles in the two SFN articles were related. And in response to Janet Stevenson’s plea (SFN 22, p18) I can now show the probable relationship of the four Shapinsay families who emigrated on Marion in 1851: (see below) And why did the Orcadian migration to South Australia then slow so suddenly in 1852? No doubt the news of the discovery of gold in NSW and Victoria that reached UK in late 1851 quickly made Adelaide a less popular destination. And some of the new arrivals may have written home of hardships they had encountered: eight years later, William Ward, who had migrated as a 26 year old unmarried agricultural labourer in July 1851, wrote from Adelaide to David Balfour thanking him for the £10 Balfour had sent him and advising he had “this week begun work which will last but a few weeks and then I must look for more it is always the case here everything is so uncertain, .… I may well rue the day I came here for I have never settled or at all comfortable and done no good for myself since the day I left you.” (Orkney Archives D2). But this unfortunate example was not typical, for the majority of Orcadian migrants to South Australia “made good”, and many of their descendants still flourish there 150 years later".

10896 Probably the only exciting thing that ever happened on Faray was in December 1908, when the Hope, a fishing vessel from Peterhead, ran aground on the Holm of Faray during a storm leaving its crew stranded on the rocks. The 'Five Men of Faray' as they were known, being William Burgar of Cott, John Hercus of Doggerboat, James Groat of Leaquoy, Robert Reid of Holland and John Drever of Windywall, braved the storm to row across the Lavey Sound and rescue the crew of the stricken Hope. Their reward was a trip to the Scottish mainland to meet Edward VII at Balmoral where they each got a medal each together with "a good pipe and some tobacco".
