  1. I could not find what I was looking for. According to birth records a james Calder was born on Nov. 10, in 1775 in Walls & Flotta to a John Calder and a Jean Sandison. James came to Canada to York Factory (Hudson Bay Co) around the turn of the century (1800). They say he married a native women and had around 5 children. He is supposed to have returned home in 1822. He apparently never went back to Canada. I was trying to find when and where he died. Also he must have left family in Scotland when he sailed to Canada? Maybe had more once he returned home to Scotland. We have traced his huge family in Canada and U,S.It would be interesting to find distant relatives in Scotland and where James passed away and when. Is Walls and Flotta the same place? My mother was a direct decendent of James about five generations away.

    • I never finished putting all the old parish records of death for Walls on the site but they are probably on the ScotlandsPeople website (pay to view), you might also try looking at their census records. Unfortunately there are no old parish death records for Flotta. I had a look on the 1839 unofficial census of Flotta but there were no Calders living there at that time. Personally I’ve never come across any Calders on Flotta so it might be more of a Walls name. The parish of Walls and Flotta comprise of the island of Flotta, and to the West – Walls, which is a peninsula of the island of Hoy.
