I'm interestd in finding out more!
A brief personal history:
I currently live in Holland - my immediate family lives in Portsmouth. The lineage is as follows:-
Ruth (+2 brothers & 1 sister)
Father : Paul C. Waterston (brothers Neil (2 sons)& Piers (1 son))
Grandfather: William Waterston (Liverpool) - currently 90 years of age.
Here is the story as I heard it from Grandpa.
Other Noth Eastern family businesses including boat building - at at one time building hte boats for Cambridge for the infamous boat race against Oxford!
The origin of hte name - according to my sources - is that there were two brothers called "Waterson" and they had a big family feud - to the extent that one brother cut all ties with the family and put a "t" in his name!
Since being "on line" I have tried to find other Waterstons via ICQ and am waiting for "chat" permissions from people in Canada, the U.S., South Africa and Australia. I do remember that when we lived in Birmingham there were only three of us int eh phone book - us, my uncle and an unknown family. In Portsmouth we are the only ones!
Look forward to hearing more from you.
