Alexander Allardice Marwick b. 13.04.1878 Rousay         The Duke
d. 1957 (age 79) Glasgow
Alexander A. Marwick, who left Rousay as a young man, was a shadowy sort of figure. He spent most of his life in Glasgow. The house at Midgar, which was a small, thatched cottage, came into his hands after his sister May died. In 1921, “The Duke”, as he was nicknamed because of the airs and graces he adopted, had the old house demolished, and a large, two-storey one erected in its place.  He ran out of funds before all his plans were completed and the house was never occupied except for short holiday periods. No one in Rousay seems to have known the source of Alexander’s apparent wealth, nor how he lost it.  At one time, he owned several farms in Sourin including Gorehouse, Banks, Hurtiso, and Scockness.  A subsequent owner removed the roof of Midgar to be used elsewhere and the walls were demolished at about the same time.

Archibald Leonard emigrated to Winnipeg in 1903 but came back to Rousay to marry Margaret Gibson.  He and Margaret then returned to Winnipeg where they raised their family. They moved to Sharpewood, Manitoba in 1914 and began farming. He was a trustee for the First School of Sharpewood MB, which was 20 miles from their farm. He was also very much involved with the church as a member of the choir and the person responsible for the church bookkeeping. They retired to Eriksdale and eventually moved to Edmonton, Alberta, where they lived with their daughter Marion and her family.
