||Harry was born in the late 1600s. Official records of this time are very scarce. Among the documents is an old rent book, which was kept by Thomas Gifford, Laird of Busta, starting in 1706 and finishing in 1732.|
On page 138 is an account for Harry Christopherson & Son, in which is recorded:
"1726 Aprill 22 then set to him and his son Alexr Hry 5 merks land in Gruten for 3 years for the same rent paid by Jno Anderson present tenant yrof to cart peats to this year and to labur out 727 as the first years payment of the rent".
The ensuing detailed statement of account includes items in £Scots (£1 Sc = 1/6 sterling): "to 1/3 of a boat from And Jamson £4 in 1728": to a fyb before the Stuarts Court Febr 18 1730 £5: "1731 July 1st Sold to him 3 ewes wt lamb being old at 20s £3, 2 hogs 1 gander £2.10": and a payment for building the Kirk at Scatsta £1.4.
On the credit side was "1728 by a beast fostering this winter £1", and several for "tylor work".
In 1731 the account was transferred to Book No. 7, which is not preseved.
Other Christophersons mentioned in this book who may or may not have been brothers were Alexr in Eube of Dealsness, 1712; Gilb 1709; Ja paying rent for 9 merks in Flet and for 1-1/2 merks in Skeeva, 1707-1731, and a Ja (perhaps the same) with 3 merks in Berfinseter, mentioned in 1711, 1714, 1716 and 1722, with a reference to his burrying in 1730.
Other Harrisons, who may or may not be Harry's children, were Harry Harison in Hamnavoe, 1721; James Hary, 1730-1; Janet Harryson, 1730, and her brother Wm in Rooe, 1729-1730, with an account in 1729 for their mother's burrying; La Harison now in Burraness 1721; and Mag Hory, mentioned in 1710, 1711 and 1712. The only Christopher mentioned with a patronymic surname and therefore conceivably Harry's father, was Christopher Anderson (Andrewson) with 4-1/2 merks in Unyfirth, 1712-1715, and a brother Arthur there 1712-1723, sons of And. Robertson.
Persistent tradition in both families says that Alexander Sandison and his wfie Joan Jane Sandison (m. 1877) were kinsmen. His great-grandfather John Sandison was born about 1745, the son of an Alexander Harrison, farmer of Westerscord, an ajoining croft to Gruten. He could well be the Alexr Hry of Gifford's rent book. Joan Jane's great-great-grandfather was Peter Christie of Northmavine, descended from a centenarian Christopher, b. 1681, d. 1786, who was probably an Alexanderson, perhaps the nephew of Harry. If so a move from Northmavine could account for Harry's appearance in 1726, with a son old enough to be a partner, 20 years after the rent book opened.
||In 1901, William's wife is Mrs Pullin aged 40 born in Warwicks. This is probably Mary being coy about her age. [S1] ||Mary Ann Church
||May have been resident at Benigarth, Delting at 1851 census, although age given of 86 may seem to preclude this. [S3] ||Agnes Clark
||Probably had sisters Mary and Marion, who were witnesses at baptism of son John. ||Agnes Clark
||Death record gives mother's name as Martha Irvine. [S3] ||Inga Clark
||In 1789 John was ordained an elder in the church at Ballista. He was also precentor and session clerk. Thus he moved from Uyeasound to Ballista. In 1801 he was appointed Parochial schoolmaster in Northmavine at Finlans. John and his wife were both buried at Hillswick.|
Laurence Williamson's papers indicate that John's mother may have been a Catherine Thomason (married Arthur Clark?). The papers say that John Clark was a schoolmaster at Hillswick, and that his father was from Unst. He came to Northmavine and married a woman out of Grocken. Christopher Sandison came to John Clark's school and married his daughter Betty.
||May have had a brother Hugh of Moula, Uyeasound, Unst, who was born 1712. In 1739 Hugh ahd got a sheep and horse ear mark which remained with the Clark family. This ear mark was passed to the eldest son of Alexander after he married.|
||In 1841, Richard is with William c1776, Mary c1801, Susannah c1821 and Henry c1821. [S1] ||Richard Clayson
||Married as Maria Charlotte Clegg. [S1] ||Maria Emily Clegg

||His noncupative will said that his house and lands should go to his mother for her natural life thereafter to his youngest brother Richard; his four sisters should have £20 each after their mother dies; Richard Wraight, a servant, should have all his wearing clothes; Jane Impett should have a 20s piece of gold; his brother Richard should have his chest. Witnesses to the will were Margaret, the wife of William Sladden, Sarah the wife of Daniel Hobday and Richard Wraight. No issue. [S154] ||Edward Cloke

||A COLONIAL WYCOMBE. - A correspondent of the "Field" gives some particulars of a shooting excursion in Cape Colony, in the course of which he refers to Mr. James Coltman, a brother of the present Mayoress of Wycombe. He says:- "The Bay Easter Hunt, Cape Colony. - Game is getting scarce in South Africa; however, a right good hunt is still possible within sixty miles of Port Elizabeth. The Bay Easter Hunt was established some fifteen years ago by John Holland, a well-known and right genial sportsman, and for the last eight or nine years has been held on the farm of James Coltman, Thorn Kloof, or Wycombe Vale, as he loves to call it, after his home in the old country. This gentleman deserves more than passing mention, as he strictly preserves his farm of some 12,000 acres entirely for the benefit of the hunt, and is to be seen always during the shooting, urging on the Kaffir beaters, giving hints as to good stands, and generally assisting, by encouragement and sound advice, in every direction. He is a thorough sportsman, and always prefers seeing a friend get a shot to having a shot himself. Some two or three years ago the members of the hunt presented him with a handsome silver tankard having for handle to the lid a model of his celebrated and favourite pointer Bob standing at birds, and also ornamented with names of the givers and a bush buck head and tiger head killed at the previous hunt by Mr. Coltman himself. The farm, Wycombe Vale, is a lovely place, pleasing to the eye of the lover of scenery, and doubly so to the sportsman. It produces grain in abundance, pasturage for numerous herds of cattle. A pretty homestead, situated in a valley, surrounded by beautiful hills, with deep kloofs cutting into them, the former covered with grass and the latter thick with trees and bush, the home of the bush buck - quiet and secluded spots, that are never disturbed except at the annual hunt. Although plenty of bucks succumb to the gun every Easter, their numbers do not diminish, as there are vast tracts of bush in the neighbourhood, which supply any deficiency that might otherwise arise. I may here mention that the bush buck is almost the only buck in the country that ever shows fight; a ram when wounded and at bay must be approached with extreme caution; a neck like a bull, horns sharp as a needle, mane erect and fierce eye, compel everyone to treat him with respect." |

||Restoration of St. Patrick's Cathedral, Armagh, Ireland.|
Archbishop Beresford employed Lewis Nockalls Cottingham, one of the most skilled architects at that time to restore St. Patrick's Cathedral. Cottingham removed the old stunted spire and shored up the belfry stages while he re-built the piers and arches under it. The arcade walls which had fallen away as much as 21 inches from the perpendicular on the south side and 7 inches on the North side, were straightened by means of heated irons, and the clerestory windows which had long been concealed, were opened out, and filled with tracery.
