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

Williamsume Early Origins



The surname Williamsume 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.
