      * William Magnusson of Buness and Gardie, probably identical with William Magnusson of the Island of Unst, who was a complainer against Laurence Bruce of Cultmalindie in 1575, said to be descended from Hendrich Hendrichson, Great Foude, Lawman and Chancellor of Zetland, whose commission granted by King Christian I if Denmark and written in Danish, is said to have been in the possession of and to have been presented by Thomas Mouat of Garth, along with the old papers of the family, to a Swedish knight in 1792. William was underfoude of Unst in 1582, bailie of the same in 1598, and was a witness to the schynd bill of Erasmus Polson in 1616. He died fairly soon after this. [S3]
