This website tracks the descendants of John Willison the Covenanter.

John was born circa 1625 in Ayreshire Scotland

He was a keen supporter of The Covenanters and gave asylum to those being sought by government troops and although greatly harassed in those 'troublous' times he escaped the hands of his enemies and lived to witness the revolution. 

He lived a number of years more as a tenant farmer at Glengeith, near Elvanfoot, Crawford.  
A memorial stone to John and his sons can be found at Crawford Church Yard in the Scottish Borders.
