Children of Abigail Marion and John Inkster

Abigail Marion is a bit of a mystery. We know that she married John Inkster in 1788 in Stromness, Orkney. There they had six children in 1789 & 1791, then 1798, 1800, and 1802. One son James likely died as an infant given that the next son was also named James (a common custom) and son William went to Canada but the fates of the rest are as yet undiscovered. Also unknown is where John and Marion were before and after they had their family.
The surname Marion and the forename Abigail are not typical Orcadian names. Where did she come from? I would very much like to know her story.
