Shetland first enters the historic record in the Norse Period when it appears in the Sagas, though it is also possible that the Roman, Tacitus, was referring to Shetland when he writes about the visit of Agricolas navy to Ultima Thule. Whatever the case, both these periods are covered in the Archaeological Section and this History begins with the end of the Norse Period and the transfer of control to Scotland. During the 14th century Norway, Sweden and Denmark united, but even together they were not as wealthy or powerful as before and a marriage was proposed between the Danish and Scottish Royal Households to bring prosperity to both. The dowry was 60,000 florins and Shetland was put forward by the Danes as surety. The Danish princess died en route to her wedding in Scotland but Scotland still insisted on payment; the Danes could not pay and so, in 1468, Shetland was forfeited to Scotland. However, little changed in the way people lived or were governed for at least the next 100 years.
During the 15th century Shetland was becoming increasingly significant to people out with the Scandinavian world particularly to North Europeans keen to trade for the salted fish, livestock and skins that abounded in and around the Islands. The North German Hanseatic League came to dominate the economy, while Norse law continued to rule and people still looked east to Norway rather than south to Scotland for their cultural ties. Indeed Norse laws were not banned and replaced by Scots laws until 1611. Scottish power only arrived in force in Shetland during the Reformation when, in 1564, Mary, Queen of Scots, granted the crown lands in Orkney and Shetland to her half brother, Robert Stewart. Robert built himself a grand house at Sumburgh (Jarlshof) and made his half-brother, Laurence Bruce, chief magistrate or sheriff. Laurence was corrupt and cruel and was imprisoned for misdemeanours. On his release he built himself a new castle at Muness on Unst in 1598 the most northerly castle in Britain but his ill-treatment of the locals is said to have continued.
Throughout the 17th century Dutch traders were firmly established in Shetland, trading spirits, tobacco and other desirables for locally produced knitted goods, meat, butter and, of course, fish. Booths were built for these traders, an excellent example being Greenwells Booth at Uyeasound, built in 1700 by the Scott family. Relations between Shetlanders and the Dutch were extremely good but Britain was at war with Denmark and in 1665 the British built Fort Charlotte in Lerwick to safeguard their interests and keep the Dutch at bay. The fort was burnt down by the Dutch a few years later and the Dutch continued to trade. However, the lives of the Shetlanders remained precarious in the extreme, with a decline in fish stocks, an increase in attacks by French pirates, bad harvest and smallpox outbreaks.

I would definitely recommend you to anybody in the future." Les & Jackie Eales
