|Doris Mark's documents from Savedale|
|acquired land to build Savedale in 1665 Savedale is the name of the Omand homestead of 400+ years in Stromness (Firth & Steness area of the Orkneys). Assuming the quote means that he purchased or inherited Savedale in 1665.|
|Mrs Doris Mark indicates that ""Savedale"" is the name of the Omand family homestead in Firth & Stenness and that the family has resided there continuously for over 400 years. This therefore connects this particular gentleman to our Omand family tree…|
