Weir family in Australia
Posted by: Stephen Sheaffe (ID *****5837) Date: June 26, 2011 at 19:41:24

Dear Readers
The name Weir is common in Australia. My Weir ancestor (David) arrived in Australia in 1857. David's brother William and his young wife Mary Muldonn also migrated in 1857. Another brother James and his wife Eleanor Coulter migrated about 1863. The brother's parents were Robert and Anne Weir and they lived in the Townland of Glasmullagh, County Fermanagh, Ireland.
Apparently there were three other siblings: Anne Jane who married a Mr Little, John who remained in Ireland and married Margaret and another brother Robert with his wife migrated to America- but where and when is not known.
Can you help on any of these families.
I am writing about the Australian Weirs
