Re: The Herriot Family
I was very interested in your Peterhead sea-faring families, in particular the name William Volum and have wondered where the name Volum originates.
I have a William Volum Mcleod born in October 1834 who is my 2 x gt.grand uncle. He was the son of Dugal Mcleod and Anne Rose. The name William Volum then appears in another family name as William Volum Davidson McLeod born June 1864, died 1867. This William Volum was the son of Dougald McLeod and Sarah Davidson (Dougald being the brother of the first Dugald).
Has anyone any ideas about the name Volum?

Many thanks for the 1851 Census information on George Herriot and Jane Martin & Family.
For your interest, I'm certain that the SOPHIA HUNT HERIOT in your database of "Strays" is decended from this family. I just don't know when the family (or members of the family) may have emigrated to Australia.
In fact, it looks to me that there must have been quite a few "Seafaring" families from Peterhead went to Australia at some point (Ref. James Volum, Edmund Hutchison in the "Strays" database). I actually have a WILLIAM VOLUM (Who was married to a JANE HUTCHISON) who died in 1883 at Geelong Cottage, Peterhead..............Interesting !
