Looking for the Williamsons of Tingwall, Shetland.

I have started to research my father's family. His mother was Annie Williamson born in 1900. She married James Hopkins. Annie's parents came out from Shetland in the late 1870's. Annie's father waa Jeremiah Williamson. Jeremiah came out to NZ when he was 1yr old. He married Margaret Hunter in 1897 in Inglewood, NZ.

If this rings a bell with anyone, I would be so happy to hear from you.

Williamson of Shetland

I am looking for information on my Williamson ancestors from the Shetland Islands. They came to New Zealand in 1873.

My Great grandfather Jeremiah Williamson was one year old at the time.

His parents were Henry and Jane Williamson (born Hunter).

I think they lived in Tingwall.

Thank you in anticipation.
