Hi Ronald, I am 1st cousin, twice removed of James Weir Tipping (So FTW says!!)
Have found loads of info regarding James Weir Tipping and family. Including fantastic links to Louise Lunn and Judith Porter.
James was born in 5 Queens Road, Battersea, London, England, on 22 November 1885. He had bothers and sister John, Richard, William, Agnes & Hugh (All born in EDinburgh, Scotland) dates etc available if you want them.
I have been principly tracing the Weir family, James's mother was Helen Swirles Weir, my G Grandfather's sister. If you want a pdf file of family which includes all 800+ links going back to 1750 or part let me know - or if you have FTW version 9 I will send you complete file
