Can someone tidy up Clan Wemyss profiles

Looking at a number of Wemyss family profiles this morning, I have been struck by the number where clearly birth, marriage and death dates are incorrect because warning boxes are appearing.

Do we have someone who is an expert on the Wemyss family who would be willing to check the profiles of the main lines from Caskieberran into the Earls of Wemyss and correct the relevant dates of birth, marriage and death?

The Wemyss family beyond those who married into the Sutherland family is not one of my areas of expertise.

Hi Mark, in the absence of any other volunteers and since I notice I had queried the first Earl's wife a couple of years ago (now fixed), I'll take on checking Clan Weymss.

thanks Sheena, you may need to use some estimated dates just to make generations look sensible. I spent this afternoon disconnecting and reconnecting family members where there were inter-generational errors and found myself writing down all the profile numbers on paper to ensure I put them back together correctly (at the 2nd attempt)!

Thanks for the warning!  I've just finished checking the 1st Earl & his wife Jane Gray - might as well start at the beginning (of the Earldom anyway) wink

And just to throw a spanner into the works, Russell Crowe's mother and maternal grandfather were also surnamed Wemyss.

Above I have linked Russell's grandfather, for whom we have NO Details at all.

Just for your records....

Just as an update, I think I've got the Caskieberran Wemyss family sorted out from https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Wemyss-143 - I can't go further back as I'm not pre-1500 certified - until they married into the Earldom.

I'll start working forwards from Margaret (https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Wemyss-135) nowsmiley
