Chris, I am descended from Irish Latimers. My great-great-grandfather, William Leonard Latimer was born in Belfast, Ireland in 1863. His parents were George Latimer and Elizabeth Leonard. That is as far as I have gotten with the Latimers. Elizabeth Leonard parents were John Leonard and Margaret Price m. 1 Feb 1830 St. Andrews, Newcastle Upon Tyne, Northumberland, England. I have found many Latimers on the Ellis Island site that have immigrated from Ireland to the USA. My Latimers migrated to Rhode Island in the 1880's-1890's. You are probably correct in your statement about the Irish Latimers migrating from Scottish roots, I have seen many Scottish Latimers on various web sites.
