Transcribed from the Parish Registers

Transcribed from the Parish Registers as they were written in the registers .Variants spelling of the surname possibly these are all Scottish.There is no further record of any marriage or births for them in any records, and on checking with the Ulster Museum in Omagh who have records of emigrants to USA there is no reference to Wemyss, so they must have returned to Scotland, moved to another county or died out.
