Helen Docherty Butterworth & George Weir Children
« on: Wednesday 21 February 18 10:00 GMT (UK) »
Good Morning everyone

I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction please?

I am looking for DOB for 2 relatives.  MY great grandparents Helen Docherty Butterworth & George Weir had 6 children.
Helen Weir - 1928
George William Weir - 1929
James Weir - 1933 - 1992
Alec Weir (possibly Alexander?
Nancy Weir
Isabella Weir

I cannot find the last 3's birth year and i cannot look at Census as they were born after the last available one.

I know Nancy had children, 2 of which are Helen Curley and Sandra Curley
Isobella had 5 boys and died of cancer in her late 20's early 30's.

I cannot find anything about Alec/Alex. (my dad referred to him as uncle Alec)

Appreciate any advice you have of where else to look please.  Thanks in advance.

Unfortunately, you will not be able to view any of these births online as they are less than 100 years ago.

To search Scottish records you need to go to Scotlands People in Edinburgh or Mitchell Library in Glasgow. The other alternative is to search online at SP and if you are certain you have the right person order a copy of the birth certificate at a cost of 12 + postage.

Hope this helps.

There are two possible births -

Alexander Weir born 1933  Pollockshields, Glasgow - Ref 644/18 555
Agnes Cameron Weir born 1933 Pollockshields, Glasgow - Ref 644/18 910

There are a few Isabella's but none born in Pollockshields unfortunately. Too many to search in other parts of Glasgow.

You say that Isabella had a number of children and died young. Do you know her married name?

Isabella Black Sempre Nee Weir died age 32 1969 in glasgow
Also Alexander Weir MMS Butterworth Death 1980 aged 59 so birth must have been 1921
and i found out nancy by looking on her family pages on facebook.  Her daughter wrote a lovely status in her mothers memory with everything i needed.

Thanks for your trouble though it is much appreciated :)

Hello again Ev :)

I have a lot of information regarding Helen and George already thank you but only needed the 2 birth dates of Alex and Nancy.  Through Facebook trolling and death certs i have found out the below :)

Alexander Weir - 1921 - 1980
Nancy Weir- 31/03/1923 - 29/03/1978
James Weir: 1933 - 1992
Helen Weir:  1928 Born
Isabella Weir - 1937 - 1969 possibly - going by her death cert.

Isabella  died in 1969 when she was 32. I added her to the above list. She had 5 sons before she passed with John Kelly Semple who she married in 1953.

Alexander Weir - possible Death 1980 aged 59 so birth was 1921?


Weir Alexander         M  1980    505/21

Weir Isabella Black    F    1937    644/15 783

Think i got enough to finish my dads book :)
