Thomas Thomson b c1791 married to Agnes Rae (?)  Lived Rerrick.   Two sons John Thom(p)son b c1815 & Samuel Thom(p)son b c1821 both moved to Walsall c 1840.  John married Mary Wilson 1839 Dunscore.  Samuel married Marion Milroy 1847 Walsall.  John Thompson was a draper.

Thomas & Agnes also had 2 daughters: Isabella & Margaret.

Does anyone have any information to add to this or able to confirm these details ?

Thank you

Thank you for the reference Matt, and for the welcome too.
I wasn't aware of that website so hopefully it will be very useful.

I notice you are researching the Rae families from Kirkcudbrightshire, does Agnes Rae feature at all ?

I know very little about my newly found ancestors, any information you can share would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers  Mark
