Janet Fea Fotheringham and John Peace

Janet Fea Fotheringham married John Peace and had three sons and four daughters:

On 26th September 1808, John Peace was fishing off Rothiesholm Head in Stronsay and saw what he thought was a dead whale some quarter of a mile from shore.  It later came ashore after a south westerly gale and he measured it to be some fifty five feet in length. It was a rather unusual creature and he, as well as George Sherar of Rothiesholm and William Folsetter gave affidavits in Kirkwall detailing what they saw.

Janet Fea Fotheringham died, at around the aged of 44 years, on 17th May 1815. It does appear that this was due to complications of child birth.

John Peace was remarried in 1817 by the seceder minister Rev Mr Taylor.
