Hello Fife! Am looking for information connecting the Numbers/Numes surname to Wemyss. As Eoin Mor nan Uamh(ais) Mac Dubh is listed as a principal ancester of Clan Wemyss
(nan Uamhais --> n'Uamhais-->Nuam(h)ais or something to that effect), I think it may be possible that Numes arose as an alternative and was perhaps anglicized to Numbers. I do have documents
connecting Numes to Numbers. Very glad to share anything that I have on the name, and looking very much forward to hearing from you! Tapaidh libh, Síle Shigley
