UNST>UNST>UNST I am researching my ancestors from the Isle of Unst,Shetland.My 3rd great grandmother was Margaret Janet Thomson who was b. Unst 3 August 1813. Her father was James Thomson mother name unknown. Margaret married John Sutherland on Unst in 1834 although it is speculation as to whether he was from Unst or not. I would be ,most interested to hear from anybody with any information on the Thomson surname which was quite popular on the Isle of Unst and I am sure that someone can put me right on the origins of the name, whether they are from Norway or Denmark. Two countries that I know in history had claimed a stake in the Shetlands.
