Francis Courtney Wemyss

fname=Barbara Wemyss
address1=8 Captains Way

ancestor= The mother of Francis Courtney Wemyss

comments= I have information that my Great-great grandfather's mother was a Courtney born in Boston, Mass while it was still a colony of England. I believe that her brother, Thomas Courtney, Jr. lived sometime in the 1700 in Edinburgh, Scotland, although I believe that Francis Hamilton Wemyss may have married her in London. I have no name for her.

My information comes from a book written by her son, Francis Wemyss who brought the first group of English actors to the U.S. in 1832. Can anyone help me find his mother and her family?
