1901 Census Thomas, James and Alexander are in Kilmalcolm Orphanage, Renfrewshire Registration Number 569.

Hope this helps in some way

well after near on 5 years since I started with the mcgilp/pringle family I have now found and in weekly contact with alexanders son who lives in Canada,it has been a long hard road to track him down plus I also found james pringles son inlaw in Michigan,so to everyone who is struggling to find family don't give up it has taken ages but I am so very happy with the outcome also had a few teary eyed moments on the phone to alexanders son who is now in his eightys,so few words of encouragement is DONT GIVE UP.                          eva xxxx

Did you ever find whether the 1901 Thomas Pringle was a sibling as well?  He appears to have been born in the same year as Elizabeth - 1889

Hi Eva Thank you for replying to me. Was your granny Elizabeth Taylor Pringle known as Bessie. The family had a grocers in Glasgow. I have got photocopies of births,marriages and deaths on pages that seem to be from a family bible. The details are handwritten.I expect you know that there were 6 children born to Flora Taylor McGilp. Looking forward to hearing from you. Rosiemay7 x
