Hi James

From the previous census entries we had for the family www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/topic,409187.15.html, we had the following census entries:

1861 - everyone born in Blackford except for mother Helen:

James Scobie 34, shoemaker
Helen Scobie 38, b. nk, Edinburgh
William Scobie 10
Andrew Scobie 8
Margaret Scobie 4
James Scobie 2

Address: Old Street, Blackford, Perthshire

And for Catherine Thomson's family, this looks a likely entry in 1851 with the parents as showing on the A/Tree:

Charles Thomson 27, baker, b. Haddingtonshire
Margaret Thomson 26 b. Blackford
Janet Thomson 3 b. Blackford
Catherine Thomson 1 b. Blackford
Peter Tran 16, servant b. Edinburgh

Address: New Street, Blackford

No sign of father Charles for 1861, you would have to check the original for marital status of Margaret:

Margaret Thomson 37, head
Catherine Thomson 11
James Thomson 7

Address: 137 High St, Perth Burgh

Certainly from these two entries, Margaret is showing a Blackford birth. Another source to verify this is the 1855 birth of a daughter showing below from IGI:

1. JAMES THOMSON Birth: 05 AUG/ Christening: 23 AUG 1846 Blackford
2. JANET LOUISA THOMSON Christening: 02 NOV 1847 Blackford
3. CATHERINE THOMSON Christening: 24 JUN 1849 Blackford
4. MARGARET ANN THOMSON Birth: 17 AUG 1851 Blackford
5. JAMES ANDERSON THOMSON  Birth: 24 JUL 1853 Auchterarder
6. CHARLOTTE BRUGH THOMSON Birth: 28 SEP 1855 Auchterarder

Just going by children's names above, this IGI entry might connect for Margaret:

MARGARET ANDERSON Christening: 03 JUL 1824 Blackford
Parents: JAMES ANDERSON and JANET GRAY

Did you manage to find any more details for father Charles? Have you tried searching for a death for mother Margaret?

Monica  :)

Hi Monica, On the father Charles Thomson born abt 1824 Haddingtonshire married Margaret Anderson 18 May 1845 in Blackford Perth, ik remember you helping me before with this branch of mine. Trying to get this part of my family tree completed or at least fill in details and see how far i can go back, a very old relative of mine isnt at all well, so am attempting to find out as much as poss, just incase anything happens as when things like deaths etc happens in familys, details past and where we came from seem to pass away, unless someone like myself attempts to find out things.

Hi Jim

If I am following the family correctly, this looks to be Margaret still alive in 1881:

George Cairncross 64, joiner b. US
Janet Cairncross 65 b. Perth
George Cairncross 38, joiner b. Perth
George Cairncross5
Jessie Cairncross 3
Margt Clark 66, lodger b. Edinburgh
Margt Thomson 53, lodger b. Blackford, Perthshire
James A Thomson 27, son, Clerk H.M. Customs b. Auchterarder, Perthshire

Address: Leith, Midlothian

1891:

Margaret Thomson 66 b. Blackford
James Thomson 36, clerk b. Auchterarder

Address: New St (So Side), Blackford

Possible death for a Margaret Thomson/Anderson in Blackford in 1900 (b. 1824)

Remember with Scotlands People you can do general searches which give you an idea if any records show. You only have to use units to view search results or images. The death entry I found came about just from doing this type of general search on SP.

Also, lots of people here on RC have subs to the Scottish census transcripts which also helps with info.
