Alexander Malcolm Sutherland (Graeme) and
Mary Ann Graham
With the death of Alexander Sutherland’s mother in child birth and his father
shortly before in Jamaica, he was brought up and educated in the south of
England by his guardians. His paternal grandparents were Dr Hugh Sutherland
of Kirkwall and Margaret Graeme (b. 1707, d. 1762).
The Graemes were another of the Orkney lairds with property in Holm on the
East Mainland of Orkney. They were descended from George Graham,
Bishop of Orkney (b. 1565, d. 1645) and his son, Patrick Graeme of
Rothiesholm and Greenwall, I of Greameshall.
With the death in 1818 of the unmarried Admiral Alexander Graham VI of
Graemeshall (b. 1741), a cousin of Alexander Sutherland’s father, the
estate passed to Alexander. The admiral had never met the 12 year old
who was to inherit his estate.
Alexander married Mary Ann Graham. He adopted the name Sutherland
Graeme as opposed to just Sutherland, to reflect his ownership of the Graemeshall
estate. He was therefore the first of the “Sutherland Graemes”.
He only made three visits to Orkney.
<>Alexander and Mary Ann Graham had a son:
- Alexander Malcolm Sutherland Graeme who died in 1906.
Alexander Malcolm Sutherland Graeme also had a son:
- Patrick Neale Sutherland Graeme
Alexander Malcolm Sutherland (Graeme) died in 1894.
