My GGGGrandmother Stewart Willison b:1776 d:1861 at Slack, Brebister, Orkney.Parents - James Willison and Catherine Young.She married James Davidson b:1782 d:Shaw, Brebister, Orkney. I do not have their marriage date.
Children: James, Stewart (female) Robert, Barbara (married James McKenzie) Ann (married Robert McKenzie) Isabella and Isaac (my GGGrandfather)
I was a little surprised to find the name Stewart used as a girls name.Can anyone tell me where Brebister is on Orkney.I am presuming it is on Hoy.Also, Slack and Shaw - were they house or farm names and do they still exist. Can anyone help please?
