I am looking for any information of the Horne line in Kirkwall, Orkney. This was me 3 G-Gfather who came here (Canada) with the HB Company. We have lots of information on him while he was here and still have his journal etc. but know nothing about his and his families Orkney Life.

We know that his father - Henry Horne (Horn) had a goose farm just outside of Kirkwall. We know that they were there in 1850-51 but that's about it.

His mothers name was Catherine Grant and we believe he had a brother Henry Horne.

Although we are still researching the family history there and are getting good results, we would like to know if there is any information around about the Farm, or the Horne Clan on the Orkneys.

Any help would be appreciated.
