  1. I am also interested in the Batchelor of Leith as my mother told me that her family, the Frasers, originated from her. However I have never found any proof of that. there does not seem to be a definitive version of what actually happened easily available. Christine de Luca recently published a novel based on what happened. She used the Walls parish records for her story. These records are avaialable online at Scotlands People but they are hard to follow as there is only photocopies of the originals, not transcriptions. I am not sure about the story of the surnames. I can find a John Moffat born on Papa Stour about 1705 on Bayanne and there are Abernethys and Frasers recorded in the mid 18th century.
