I am looking for my 3x great-grandparents James Simpson & Elizabeth Walls (or Wallace) from Scotland. James's occupation was a Seaman. This is all the information on them. THats all that is mentioned on their daughters death certificate. (see below)

The daughter's name was Elizabeth Simpson, born South Ronaldsay, Orkney 1828, baptised 1837, married in Edinburgh 1856, emigrated to New Zealand where she died in Dunedin in 1908.

If anyone can shed any light on who James and Elizabeth Simpson (nee Walls or Wallace) were, if they had any other children, when/where they were born, when/where married and when/where died, etc etc, I would be most greatful.

This has been a brick wall ever since I got the death certificate back in 1978.
