  • Notes 
    • The lineage of William is unsure. He may have been a son of Robert, second son of John Bruce of Cultmalindie, and nephew of Laurence Bruce of Cultmalindie, and accompanied his uncle to Shetland in the capacity of Secretary or Clerk. On 28th March 1592, he had a Feu Charter from Patrick, Earl of Orkney, of the 20 merks of land, 6 pennies the merk, of Soundburgh, called the King's lands and 4 merks of land called the Provost's lands, lying runrig with the said 20 merks, and the 20 merks of land of Scatness. These Provost's lands which originally belonged to the Dom Kirke or Cathedral of Bergen, he excambed on 5 th August 1604, with the Earl for the lands of Sandwick, but on 15th November 1605, this was departed from, and he received a new Charter from the Earl which was confirmed by the Crown on 20th November 1605.
