Clan History

Weir History

weir_img_historyThe name Weir derives from the Norman ‘Vere’ and the name is now commonly found in Lanarkshire and other parts of Scotland.
The first person of this name mentioned in Scottish history is a Radulphus de Vere in the 12th century.  He was a son of Aubrey, 1st Earl of Oxford who joined the Flemish side over succession in England.  He went to Scotland in 1165, giving his allegiance to William the Lion and at the Battle of Alnwick in 1174, Ralph was captured alongside the king.
