An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The Strathclyde Briton clans of the Scottish/English Borderlands were the first to use the name Wiliamsoom. It is derived from the Norman personal name William. The name literally was derived from the patronymic expression son of William.

Wiliamsoom Early Origins



The surname Wiliamsoom was first found in Peebles, where this predominantly Scottish Clan held a family seat anciently, although their interests straddled the English Scottish border and they held territories as far south as Keswick in Cumberland.

The Great Migration



The persecution faced in their homeland left many Scots with little to do but sail for the colonies of North Ameri ca. There they found land, freedom, opportunity, and nations in the making. They fought for their freedom in the American War of Independence, or traveled north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. In both cases, they made enormous contributions to the formation of those great nations. Among them: Michael Williamson, who settled in Massachusetts in 1631; James Williamson, who settled in Virginia in 1654 along with Isaac, Richard, Alice, and Ann.
