WEIR, KERR, MACILLWAINE FAMILIES

Post by Keith Scott » 13 Jan 2006, 04:28

Iam currently on the trail of my Antrim ancestors. DAVID WEIR marrying ELIZABETH MACILLWAINE about 1780, Son COCHRANE WEIR marrying SARAH KERR about 1810, Two children born in N Ireland ELIZABETH (c 1812) DANIEL (c 1815). Cochrane and his family emigrated to Edinburgh about 1820.

Old family memoirs lead me to Ahoghill area but have no prrf.
Any takers?
many thanks
Keith Scott

back to 1700s....leading towards Ballyscullion..Toome....
Thomas Weir 1827
various Weir with the first name of Jervis.

Many records were burnt during the troubles and no marriage records until 1854 are available so hunting for details is hard.

Please watch for my Tom and I will look for yours too.
