Hector (c1853-1933) was a son of William Bruce and Wilma Sutherland, of Kildonan, Sutherland.
Hector was living in Sandwick in Orkney when, in Golspie in 1882, he married Margaret Anderson from Golspie. Margaret (c1855-1947) was the daughter of Alexander Anderson, a tailor, and Ann Gordon. Hector and Margaret had a family of seven, four daughters and three sons.
Hector taught variously in Helmsdale, Orkney and Skye. He was headmaster at Cromore School (where his brother William had also served briefly) in the Pairc district of Lewis, from 1902 to 1918. His daughter, Charlotte, was a teacher at Cromore School for a time.
Hector and Margaret retired to Inverness, where Hector died, at 15 Midmills Road, in 1933. An obituary for Hector appeared in the Highland News of 27th May 1933.
