Thank you so much for this information. I will keep it on file as I search for deeper roots back to Norway. My Jamieson participant has a very specific family tradition of his ancestor being an aid to the King of Norway, and being given a large land grant in the west of Shetland. All very interesting and grist to the mill. There is so much yet to be learned - and yet in one day, thanks to Listers, I have been given solid information and leads that will prove useful in meeting the goals of my project. Thanks all.
David, as a side note, the surnames Jamieson and Williamson are septs of the
Gunn clan.The Gunns are said to descend from the Jarls of Orkney and from
Sweyn Asleif's-son, the "Ultimate Viking" and hero of the Orkneyinga Saga.
