Descendants of



James Somerville & Mary Orkney

of Ayton, Berwickshire, Scotland



We know that James & Mary lived and worked on farms in Berwickshire where they had 11 children amongst
whom were Margaret (Doughty), William, James, Peter and Mary (Spence) because of their 11th and last child
Alexander. Alexander wrote several books, journals and articles in his lifetime 1811-1885 that are considered to
be a true picture of pre-Victorian times. In his book "The Autobiography of a Working Man" first published in
1848 we can find his own story and the story of his loved ones.
