John Williamson emigrated to the United States with his family from Toll Cross, Scotland, near Glasgow, when he was 5 years old, in 1831.  His address for most of his life was in Brooklyn but he traveled extensively throughout upstate New and New England.

Williamson's reputation was built around his love for mountain scenes with paintings of the Hudson River and Lake George, paintings in the Adirondack and Catskill Mountains, into New England, in the Berkshire Mountains, Green Mountains, White Mountains, and in Connecticut.

Williamson began exhibiting at the National Academy in 1850 and in 1861, was elected an Associate Member of the Academy. He also exhibited in Brooklyn, Washington, and Boston.

In the early 1860s he ventured into painting still-lifes featuring lilacs, morning glories, cherries, and raspberries.
He died in Glenwood-on-the-Hudson in 1885.
