Scotland / Re: James Weatherston(e)
« on: Saturday 21 November 09 14:13 GMT (UK)  »
This is my g g grandfather too.  On the 1911 census James gives his birth place as sibastipol, berwickshire.  At first we thought it read devonshire but on closer inspection it definitely says berwickshire.  And he says he is scotch.  Googling i have found no such place as sibastipol in berwickshire!! Not sure about the standard of policing in 1880's - 1900 but not sure if he has made it up!! Another work colleague said he might have something to do with the crimean war possibly baby of a soldier?!! Clutching at straws here!! Can anyone help in the chase for the elusive James Weatherston!!
