"In short, you will find this book to be much more that a family history, although it certainly delineates some splendid and memorable characters. It has, however, a wider significance. Because of Dr Fereday's scholarship and complete command of his incomparable source material, it is a book which will be of absorbing fascination to all those interested in the eighteenth century in general and in the history of Orkney in particular". William P.L. Thomson
