Johns(t)on
« on: Sunday 05 December 04 20:17 GMT (UK) »
I have managed to get as far back as Peter Johnson born Vaw, Unst 1804 who married Catherine Sinclair Unst and had 5 children - one my ancestor Elizabeth Barbara Johnston moved to Liverpool.  Does anyone know anything more about them?  I have tracked back to her great grandfather but cannot fin our about the women or the Johns(t)on side.

Also is nayone out there related to them?

Hello I have relations Johnston who originated in Shetland. It may be another branch of the family though - they seem to come from Walls, although married others from North Mavine. I have a John Johnston b 1September 1808

Hello Cherry,
I am also related to Elizabeth Barbara Johnston born in Vaw Unst - she is my Great Grandmother. She married Alfred William Shreeve in 1874. How are you related to her?

I have just traced my great great grandmother back to the Shetlands. She was Margaret Crawford Johnston 1834-1915. She was born in Shanwick but moved to Edinburgh on her marriage to William Inglis 1833-1902. My grandmother always talked about her roots in Shetland and her middle name was Johnston. Margaret Crawford was one of nine children many of whom left for new lives in countries such as USA and New Zealand. I want to find out more about her family and what they did and how they lived in the Shetlands.
I think that her mother was Willamina Crawford 1814 who married James Johnson 1804 from Lerwick
If any of this is familiar to anyone I would love to have any more information about the family
