Lawrence & Catherine Scott
« on: Wednesday 27 April 05 16:53 BST (UK) »
Hi,

I have a Catherine Scott who was born around 1841 at Walls, Shetland. Catherine married Robert Jefferson at Tynemouth in 1866, and from her marriage certificate I know her father was a mason called Lawrence Scott. I'm looking for advice on how I can find out more about this family. Thanks.

A quick glance at www.bayanne.info/Shetland shows a number of Catherine Scotts including a few born at Walls.
There are also a number of Laurence Scotts (Laurence with a "U"). It might be worth looking at these hits to see if any match your requirements.
