My husband's(Ross Gordon Sutherland)great grandfather, William Sutherland emigrated to Canada from Wick in the mid 1800's. We visited Dunrobin Castle 10 years on a trip to Scotland to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary.

Cheryl, we are always pleased to learn about the families of Sutherlands who have spread around the diaspora. Have you thought about joining our society or your husband taking a DNA test (assuming he hasn't already in which case you should contact me urgently)?

I have always been proud of my family name. "Sans Peur," has helped in many situations. Very interesting page here and I would be interested in hearing more. My brothers son *(my cousin) David had did a DNA test but I understand its expensive?

Christina Sutherland
My grandmother Christina Sutherland was born around 1870 in perhaps Gourock--
Ayrshire. Any Sutherland family connections in those places?
She eventually moved to Glasgow and then to Liverpool, England.

Clan Sutherland
My paternal grandmother was Jessie Catherine Sutherland and my name is Brenda June Dixon. My Grandmother Jessie Catherine Sutherland was born and raised in Wick and attended nursing school and befriended the Queen Mother now passed. I don't know if there are any Sutherlands who are of that family in Wick and was wondering if anyone knew of them. Apparently they have a family home in an area called "Black Hill". My grandmothers ancestor came from Thurso and some place in-between the two. Not too sure.
Anyway I just wanted to let you know that there are some direct decedents in Canada.

I am the Great Great Grandson of the Earl of Broom. Most websites state that they were a sept of the Clan Sutherland. I am hoping for verification of this.

Jason thank you for your contribution. I am sorry to have to advise you that there is no such person as the Earl of Broom and it is certainly not a sept of Clan Sutherland.

Loch Broom is the area on the west coast around Ullapool and historically fell within the lands of the Mackenzie Earls of Seaforth and Cromartie.
