The following is courtesy of Mrs Valerie Wilson and the Mornington & District Historical Society;
William Firth arrived in Victoria at the age of sixteen, to join his two brothers, James and John. The three of them went to try their luck on the goldfields without much success. They returned and did contracting work, wood cutting, using their saw-pit for cutting out planks from logs for piers and buildings. William married Ann Scott in June 1882, he was 45 and Ann was 22 years of age. It is said that Ann was the first white child born in Somerville. William established "Orkney" Farm on the east corner of Coolart and Eramosa Roads. It was named after his homeland (Orkney Isles) in Scotland and it was there he devoted his energies to mixed farming. He was one of the first to grow wheat in these parts.
His Clydesdale horses that were put out to stud were well known, and always bought high prices. In July 1882, William was seriously injured when the horse pulling his dray bolted, on the "Tanti Hill". During William’s long residence on the Mornington Peninsula, he acquired 1,000 acres of land. His Scottish ancestry provided him with a keen eye for a bargain, but he won the respect of all who knew him as a kindly neighbour, a staunch friend and a just foe.

Chronicle Adelaide, SA Saturday 9th August 1924
Mr. William Russell, the well known sailmaker and ship chandler, of Port Adelaide, died at his residence at Union street, Semaphore, on August 1. Of a quiet and retiring disposition, he had an army of friends, who admired him for his sterling good qualities. He was a native of the Orkney Islands, and was 82 years of age. He arrived in South Australia in the fifties, and after serving his time with the late Captain French as a sailmaker, was employed by Messrs. Clarke and McKenzie as a foreman. Afterwards he started on his own account at the corner of Divett and Todd streets, Port Adelaide. In 1887 he entered into partnership with Mr. H. W. Thompson and bought out the business of his former employers. This partnership was dissolved three years later, and he opened in business in Commercial Road, Port Adelaide, where he continued until his death. He had held office as president and honorary curator of the institute, museum, and art gallery at Port Adelaide. He had also been a representative of the institute on the Public Library Board, and held the office at one time of vice-president of the Institutes' Association. He was one of the first students to be enrolled at the Adelaide University. He was a clever mathematician, and took a great interest in astronomy, having a miniature observatory at his residence. Up till about two years ago he was a correspondent of the paper conducted by the Astronomical Society. He was remarkably agile for his age, and he astonished local people about two years ago by scaling the flagstaff at the top of the tower of the Customs House at Port Adelaide for the purpose of carrying out some repairs connected with the halyards. He and Mr. John Playfair were the last two remaining foundation members of the Royal Yacht Squadron. He was associated for many years with the committee and as an officer of the club, and used to race his own yacht, Vivid. Later he was in partnership with Mr. Magnus Wald in the cutter Magic. When the squadron was formed, on November 6, 1859, he was of those who met at Mr. Bucknall's Club House Hotel to bring about its inauguration. In the years which followed he did much to keep yachting and yacht racing alive. He left a widow, one son, and two daughters- Mr. W. H. Russell and Mesdames Norris and Bushell.

The first Bible Christian Methodist services in the district were held in his old farm house, and continued until the church was built at Chain of Ponds, of which he laid the foundation stone.

Like many others in the early days of the colony, he used to make wine, and had it at table meals. Reverand R Lang, one of the ministers wrote, he was, taken all round, one of the finest men I have known: a gentlemen of striking appearance. If a stranger were to meet him walking down Rundle Street he would pause to look at him, walk on and turn around again to see him. In his youthful days, being a man of great physical strength and endurance, he amused himself by engaging in wrestling matches, at which he excelled. He lived until he was ninety years of age
