My grandfather William Buchan Gatt was adopted my William Gatt and Mary Ann Gatt nee McMillian (she was from Campletown),  His adopted father William Gatt was burnt on a boat in Lerwick harbour but died in Aberdeen hospital as he was flown there after the accident.  I know my grandfather had a sister called Mary Ellen but did not know about Elizabeth wiseman however he did know wisemans in Lerwick so probably were related.

yes my granddad was known as Willie Gatt and he was brought up by William Gatt & Mary Ann.  He had a sister called Mary Ellen but I'm not sure if she was adopted too or if her mother was Mary Ann or Elizabeth Wiseman.  Did Elizbeth die then?  Did they have children?
