My husband's mother's family can be traced (so far) back to three Mainland branches - from the Orkneys.Of course, all these lines probably lead back to the same source.My mother in law's name was Martha Alice Mainland and her Mainland ancestoral lines were: 1. Andrew Mainland, b. 1745 & Marion Laughton2. John Mainland, m. 1739 & Barbara Dearness3. William Mainland & Isabel Baikie.Martha's Mainland grandparents were: Leslie Mainland and Ann Mainland (nee Mainland).Her father was Sinclair Mainland.Her Mainland family immigrated from Scotland to Canada in the last quarter of the 1800's, settling finally in Oshkosh, WI.I, too, have been much helped by "Rousay Roots" and other diligent Mainland researchers.
