James Grieve was in Australia for a time.  He later returned to Rousay where he was a sub-tenant on Outerdykes. He gave evidence against the laird, General Burroughs, at a hearing on the Napier Commission set up in 1883 to look at the condition of crofters in the Highlands and Islands.  For doing so, the laird evicted him from Outerdykes.  He obtained accomodation at Mount Pleasant in Frotoft on land outside Burroughs' control.
 

Here is a report on the eviction from the Edinburgh Evening News on 2.2.1894.
