Weymss was the son of General Sir James Wemyss of Caskieberry. On 28 March 1672, he married his cousin, Lady Margaret Wemyss and they later had three surviving children:
- Lady Anne (d. 1702), married David Melville, 3rd Earl of Leven
- David, later 4th Earl of Wemyss (1678–1720)

Almost a month after his marriage, Wemyss was created Lord Burntisland for life and died in 1682.
