No h... Sim/Sime born 1841 - 1844 in Midlothian on SP.

I can't find births for Benjamin or James.

I can't find Sim/Sime - Nelson marriage.

With no birth for Helen I'm stuck.

I can't find anything either but this might help

George Syme married Marion Nielson 1840 Prestonpans 718/09 107


1851
Bathgate, Linlithgow
George Syme 29 Miner Midlothian
Marion Syme wife 31 Liberton
Ellen Syme dau 8 Midlothian
Benjamin Syme son 2 Newbattle, Midlothian
James Syme son 1 Whitburn, Linlithgow.

George Syme died 1851 and as buried in Bathgate 3 June 1851. It would appear that Marion went back to using her maiden name as she is down as Nelson(sic) in the 1861 Census

5x Helen Sim born Scotland 1838 - 1841 and 4x Helen Sime and 2x Syme.

Not one born Lasswade so can't even eliminate one by pob in 1861 census.
