Ok, Scots. People have the name as Mary Barclay/, then the date 24/2/1822 and the place as Unst.

For some reason the Johnston name doesn't appear which seems rather odd.  I assume it is correct as Unst is where Mary was baptised.

This is their daughter Anderina's marriage stating Mary's maiden name as Johnson.

All I can think is that the vicar had a moment of forgetfulness and wrote Mary's surname as Johnson instead of Peterson.

Unless you can find a previous marriage for Mary to a Johnson you will have to accept what you see in the records.  Mary would have been 26 when she married John Robertson, so in theory time for her to  have been married and widowed before she married John.

This is obviously a case of a patronymic surname. She was the daughter of JOHN Peterson who was probably the son of Peter somebody. Its all scandinavian style but using son as a suffix here whereas the scandinavians would have used dottir (daughter).

I'd agree that the 'Johnson' is a patronymic surname.


Try Bayanne (North Isles Family History) This looks to be the lady you were looking for:

https://www.bayanne.info/Shetland/getperson.php?personID=I27865&tree=ID1

the site is a super resource and a great starting point for anyone with a link to Shetland.
As ever, the caveat is that its someone else's research ( lots and lots of folk from all over the world) so I'd recommend that you check out the info by looking at the census returns and sourcing the records to verify it.

I have used it a lot, I do check everything out carefully and, if I find an error or updated info that I can prove by documentation, I  send the details via the 'suggest' tab and provide the info for the site owners consideration. He's very willing to make verifiable corrections and appreciates the input as it helps everyone.
