Have you seen/got this.  No idea of its authenticity.

Gosh! That's amazing! Where did you find this? Definitely same family & I am focusing on Cochrane the eldest of Daniel who came to NZ at age 6 yrs. still some mysteries to solve but that's fantastic - thank you so much. And interesting that we go back to Ireland, like so many. Thank you

Hi Shanghaipanda - I think Indidn't do my reply correctly. Thank you for sending that tree & it is definitely the same family with interesting detail. Still some mysteries for me to solve as I am linked to Cochrane, eldest son of Daniel Jnr & Catharine. Where did you find this? That's terrific!! Thanks!

Just google "daniel weir + cochrane".  As I suggested - you will need to double check the authenticity of the records as many family trees are found to be less than accurate !!

Here is the family at 1841 and 1851
As son Daniel married in 1840, he does not appear on either of these returns with his parents and siblings.
Subsequent marriages for at least some of his siblings should be fairly easy to locate.

1841: Bells Mills, Edinburgh.

Cochran Weir   45 Ag Labourer b Ireland
Sarah Karron Weir   35  Ireland
Elizabeth Weir   25 B Ireland
James Weir   20 B Midlothian  ( all others b Midlothian)
Hugh Weir   15
Agnes Weir   13
Robert Weir   11
Joseph Weir   9
Andrew Weir   3

1851: Dean Path, Edinburgh
   
Name   Age
Cochrane Weir   59
Sarah Weir    60
Elizabeth Weir   34
Nancy Weir   24   ( Agnes Weir married James McKay in Aug 1851)
Robert Weir   22  ( Robert Married Isabella Young in Jul 1856. Last known child b 1865 but wife was remarried to Robert Anderson by 1871)
Joseph Weir   20  ( possibly  married Jessie Stewart in 1855)
Andrew Weir   13
Sarah Weir    3    Granddaughter B Midlothian


* Marriages of siblings Robert, Agnes and Joseph  show they had children named Cochrane and/ or Sarah Kerr
