  • Notes 
    • Part of the Smith family packed up their farms "lock stock and barrell" onto a boat and sailed from Orkney to England. The party included George Smith of Millfield, Holm and his wife Margaret Walls and the younger members of their large family. This included their married daughter Barbara and her husband Peter Ritch together with their daughter Margaret. Also travelling were Georges nephew Benjamin Hagar Smith, his wife Charlotte Kelday and their 5 young children from Cargiefield Farm, St Ola. The horses were in slings in the hold to stop them falling over and hurting themselves. Both familes went to Whipsnade, near Redbourn before Benjamin and family travelled to a farm in Weston near Baldock in North Hertfordshire.
