Very interesting tidbit. Can't help with researching Hurculson, but have Jamieson's in my line. Interesting your statement about the Shetlanders not being fond of Scots. They are now considered to be Scottish and really enjoyed my recent visit with them. However, they are very fond of the Danes & in Scalloway had the Bus Boat during World War 2. When we visited they had a memorial service which we attended and many Danes were there. Like many people in the UK, the poorer ones suffered at the mercy of their Lords. Things were tough for most people in years gone by.
