My Uncle, Aunty and Cousins George and Ernie Carter lived at the House Maltbarn. I am not sure of the dates, but before the War until the Fifties.

Maltbarn was owned by my grandparents [William Harcus & Margaret Paterson] and after they died the family sold it in 1937 to George Carter, who worked as a roadman on the roads in Eday and, when he married Babie Twatt of Breck, they moved to Maltbarn and went on to have two sons. When George died Babie sold Maltbarn to Tommy Tulloch of Breck and she moved to Kirkwall and opened a chip shop at the corner of Gunns Close and Victoria Street. She later went to Australia with one of her sons. Before she had married, Babie had been a housekeeper for my grandmother’s brother, William Harcus, in Stromness.

My grandparents Thomas and Anna Twatt used to live at Maltbarn before moving to Groatha. Enjoyed many a day as a kid on the sandy beach in front of Maltbarn.

The Carters, George, Ernie, Nancy and their Mother all went to New Zealand, and the three lived there. Nancy married a New Zealander and they lived there for some time before moving to England. Her Family were four girls and one boy.
Their Mother died in New Zealand. George and Ernie still live in New Zealand with their Families.
