Whitehall


Whitehall
   WHITEHALL, a village, in the old parish of St. Peter, island of Stronsay, county of Orkney; containing 295 inhabitants. This village is situated on a narrow promontory forming the northern boundary of Mill bay and southern shore of Papa sound, on the north-east of the island: the inhabitants are chiefly employed in fishing. Kelp was formerly manufactured here, as in the rest of Stronsay, in considerable quantity. It was first made in 1722, under the auspices of Mr. James Fea, of this village, whose name, for so important a benefit, continues to be remembered by the population with respect. The manufacture, however, has latterly very much declined.
