Family Trees and Census entries for John Thomson and family are noted below.

There is some confusion in interpreting the information.

Firstly in the 1901 census John Thomson is stated as being at Drumnagarrie but his daughter being at Belnaglack. I assume this is an error. Drumnagarrie, or Drumnagarrow, is the neighbouring croft to Belnaglack

Secondly and more significantly in the census as well as his own named children there is also a family Stephen, who are also stated to be his children. Is this because he had adopted the children or were they by his wife from a previous marriage.

If anyone knows the answers to the anomalies in the family tree please contact the site.

Family Tree of John Thomson
