Sometimes referred to as 'The Father of the Free Church', Reverend Ingram spent many years as minister in the outer isles of Shetland, most of them in Unst. He found much poverty and poor conditions, and set about doing all he could, including setting up schools. He is chiefly remembered for the fact that he led his congregation out of the Church of Scotland to form a Free Church in Unst.
He lived to the age of 102 and, judging by the face in the portrait as well as information written about him, he must have been a man of real strength of character. It was said that when he preached there was no need to actually enter the building in order to hear him!
