    The Weirs of Blackwood

    Of the many families which have held land in the Parish, the Weirs are the oldest, being in continuous occupation from the earliest written records of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. The first of them was Baltredus (or Radulphus) de Vere, who was witness to a charter made by King William the Lion in 1160, and his son Walter made a donation to the Abbey of Kelso which was regularly confirmed by his descendants. The name is spelt variously as de Vere, de Wer, Wer, Were and Weir throughout history.

    Note: I believe Walter, son of Baltredus, was grandson of the Radulphus who witnessed the charter in 1160.
