My maternal great-grandfather was Alexander Weatherston, born 1852 in Lauder, Berwickshire Scotland, the son of Thomas and Jessie Weatherson. Thomas was born in 1815 in Earlston, Berwickshire. In his 20's, Alexander moved to the Liverpool area, married, and had 9 children (my grandmother was the eldest). She moved to Winnepeg Canada with her husband in 1920. One of her brothers (Thomas Herbert Weatherston) died at age 24 on the Titanic in 1912, where he was a crew member (a saloon steward).
