      Hoy and Graemsay population in 1905: 485

      In Graemsay, a church, of no great age, occupies the site of the old church and
      is served by a resident missionary of the Church of Scotland, with a small
      manse.(Written in 1950)

      may have lived at Gyrehouse, Stenness, Orkney before moving to Burnhouse,
      Longhope according to Dennis Johnston

      Nether means "lower"

      Burnhouse is a Farm name and is still occupied by a Mr John Budge (1997) (see
      picture) It is now (1997) used for a bed and breakfast.

      Story from Dennis Johnston:

      my father told us when they lived at the Burnhouse they had a dog that bit one
      of them so they drowned him and skinned him and used the skin for a rug in
      front of the bed.
