      Christened 16 Jul 1843
      From "The Orkney Crofters" 1888
      Property of Capt Cottigall & Mrs Bruce.
      Samuel Anderson,Point paid 5 pounds of rent and was 6 pounds 10
      shillings in arrears. He held 14 acres arable and 3 of outrun. When his
      grandfather*entered the place in 1813 there was no arable land and no
      house. His grandfather built the house and all that was on the place
      now had been put there by his grandfather, father and himself without
      any assistance from the proprietor. From 1813 to1832 his grandfather held
      the place rent free. The rent was then 4 pounds till 1872 when Capt
      Corrigal raised it to 5 pounds. Cross examined.--The
      witness said he was a fisherman,and had made a good fishing at Stromness
      this year. He had got 800 crans of herring, but he had not got the money
      yet, and might not get any. Mr Thomson explained that during recent
      years the experience was that fishermen were ruined by the failure of
      the fish curers. Chairman.(to witness).--What engagement had you with
      the curers this year? Answer.--15 to 12 shillings a cran for fish
      delivered. Mr Thomson.--He only had a 1/3 share of the boat. Mr
      Brown put a few more questions but the chairmen thought they had heard
      enough on the subject. Decision.---The rent was reduced from 5 pounds
      to 4 pounds. Of the 6 pounds 10 shillings of arrears, 1 pound 10
      shillings were cancelled, and the balance of 5 pounds ordered to be paid
      in two instalments of 2 pounds 10 shillings.
      *Alexander Anderson
