On this page are references to GRAY Births, Baptisms, Marriages & Deaths in South Ronaldsay, Orkney for the period 1638 - 1872. If you know of others, please e-mail me so that I can add them to this list! Birth and marriage information has been transcribed, mostly from various editions of the IGI. Information relating to deaths has been transcribed from Civil Death Registrations by Lisa CONRAD. For more information, visit her South Ronaldsay site.

According to Gregory LAMB, author of Orkney Surnames, the first recorded reference to the GRAY surname is of an Andrew GARAY of Garay , South Ronaldsay in 1534. The name still exists in South Ronaldsay, but has been corrupted to GRAY.
