Hi I'm trying to find info on JOHNSON(STON)(E), ORMOND, JAMIESON, TULLOCH's from the SHETLAND ISLANDS.My gggggrandparents were Laurence JOHNSON(STON(E)and Anderina nee ORMOND. They were born/lived in either Nesting or Lunnasting in the Shetland Islands. Laurence was born C1771-1776 and died possibly C1841-51. I have been unable to find out much about him and nothing about Anderina. I believe he was a crofter at "The Breaks" Lunnasting. Does anyone know this place?
