Can anyone help with information on the children of Robert BRUCE of Burravoe, Shetland - Samuel BRUCE born abt 1848 and Adrina BRUCE born abt 1850, both born on Shetland. I believe Adrina married a John HARRISON. Any help would be appreciated! I believe the mother of Samuel and Adrina was Janet WILLIAMSON, the second wife of Robert BRUCE - but I'm not too sure of that.

The 1861 census shows:

William B Rendall age 42

Janet B Rendall age 34

Samuel Bruce age 12

Adrine Brice age 10

Looks as if Janet re-married William Rendall.

Found another entry on the 1871 census (for Shetland)

William B Rendall
Janet B Rendall
Adrina Bruce
Andrina Williamson age 25, wife's sister.

So you have it right that Janet's maiden name was Williamson.
