I realize I'm a bit late but the "Owners of Land and Heritages 1872-1873" is online if that helps you folks.  Every owner over an acre is listed.  In the ca 1770 version (which is not online), there is an Andrew Williamson in Braewick: Swinister listed having a value of 8 1/2 Merks. There are no other Williamson's listed.
