An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The chronicles of the Wiliamsume family indicate that the name was first used by the Strathclyde Britons of the Scottish/English Borderlands. Wiliamsume is derived from the Norman personal name William. The name literally was derived from the patronymic expression son of William.

Wiliamsume Early Origins



The surname Wiliamsume 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



To escape the uncertainties and discrimination faced in Scotland, many decided to head out for North America. Once they arrived, many Scots fought with relish in the American War of Independence; some went north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. Many ancestors of these Scots have recovered their lost national heritage in the 20th century through Clan organizations and Scottish historical societies. Among the settlers to North America were: Michael Williamson, who settled in Massachusetts in 1631; James Williamson, who settled in Virginia in 1654 along with Isaac, Richard, Alice, and Ann.
