The connection between the Tudhope family and the Weir family goes all the way back to a marriage between James Tutop and Jonet Weir in 1703. They went on to have 4 children that I know of - Thomas in 1705, James in 1707, George in 1709 and Janet in 1712 all in Lesmahagow.My connection is throught their son James and his marriage to Jean Inglis. I have tentative marriages for Janet to John Marshall and George's to Marion Fleming but these I have not checked out yet. Is any of this a help to you??
