Old Travel Blog Photograph Catherine MacVicar Watson Glasgow Scotland

Old travel Blog photograph of Catherine MacVicar Watson, and her son James, from Glasgow, Scotland. Watson is a famous Anglo Scottish surname of great antiquity. Very popular in the north of England and the Border Country, it is one of the patronymic forms of the pre 7th century popular male personal name Watt, itself a development of the Anglo Saxon personal name and later surname, Walter. This has the interesting translation of powerful warrior. It is also claimed that the name was introduced into the British Isles by the Norman French invaders after the Conquest of England in 1066, in the forms of Waltier and Wautier. Blog post of interest to folks with ancestry, genealogy or Scottish Family Roots in Scotland who may wish to travel and visit one day.
