Weston family of Edinburgh
« on: Sunday 23 July 17 12:50 BST (UK) »
Hello ,

Today I want to research my Scottish ancestors from Edinburgh, Midlothian.

I would like to know the birth dates or baptism dates, parents names and origin of the peolpe below.


Peter WESTON b. 7/4/1778 in Edinburgh to Laurence WHISTON or WESTON and Elisabeth SHARP . I can not find a birth for a Laurence Whiston or Weston . I've found a Elisabeth SHARP b.13/6/1739 in Edinburgh to James SHARP and Ann MCDONALD and I'm not 100% sure if she is the right one i am looking for.

I have also other Scottish ancestors but I want to do it step by step .


I hope someone can help  :)


Best wishes

Hi Rosinish,

Thanks for your help  ;) I'm not a Member of SP, the baptism record for Peter Whiston is from Familysearch. But is it possible that the Surname changed from Houston to Whiston and than to Weston ? But the period of time  would fit in with the marriage of Elisabeth Sharp and Laurence Houston.

Got red warning!

Without seeing the original on SP it's difficult to imply anything as names differed so much with transcription errors/accents etc. as things were noted how they sounded i.e. not always correct.

Looks likely to have been either mistranscribed or written how it sounded although it does appear to be the correct Peter?

Always better to check the original as the Index is transcribed & as you can see from the list of births above, many variants  ;)
