They married in 1906 in Peterhead but have not found them on the 1911 census so far.

What record do you have for them from 1927 that gives that address?
Do you have any idea of John Thomson's occupation?
Who were their parents? (Might help ID if they moved on to Australia in particular as parents names are often found in death indexes there).

There are quite a number of John Thomsons about, unfortunately.

Having said that, I started looking through the WWI John Thomsons and this may be him?

Born Peterhead 2 September 1880, a bill poster, resident 4 Ponsonby Road, Auckland, married (says June 1907 on the first page), no children under 16.  He had some sort of minor heart condition but was otherwise well.

On Page 8 of his records proper details of next of kin are given - married Elizabeth Cameron 23/6/06 in Petershead, her address at the time recorded as c/o Mrs Steele, 49 Ardmore Road, Herne Bay, Auckland.

The record I have is a passenger and crew list for Elizabeth Thomson, listing her as a sales manager and her husband as John Thomson, 120 Park Road, New Zealand. 
John Thomson was listed as a gramaphone dealer, his parents were John Thomson (1844-1921) and Barbara Simpson (1861-1942).
Elizabeth Third Cameron was listed as a music teacher, her parents were James Sangster Cameron (1843-1913) and Elizabeth Guthrie (1846 -)
Your John Thomson is very possibly him the birth date is exactly a year out 2nd September 1879.  Their marriage date was 20/6/06.  Thanks.

Hi ... the link is working but you just need to click on the "buff-coloured" link (THOMSON, John ...etc.) immediately underneath the words RECORD  ONLINE.
(I know, it's a little confusing, isn't it ? )  ;D
