Hi JB,
I think it was John Wightman who married Elizabeth Hopper.
Timothy b. 6/12/1791 died 1830 in Dalkeith. Unmarried as far as I know.
Best wishes
Anne

Apologies

It has been a long time but eventually you get round to looking at information that you collect , even from 5 years ago.
My connection is John Wightman (1789-1862) who married Elizabeth Hopper (1794 -1863), who was my 2 x grandfather's half-sister.
they shared the same father, Thomas Hopper 1754 - 1820.
Elizabeth's mother was Christian Matthewson c1760-1796, whilst Thomas's mother was Janet Middlemas 1765- ?
I am trying to fill in more of the Wightman family, so any info would be appreciated
regards
