I checked any the time I viewed for that but saw no others. I just looked at an old map of Roxburgshire. Roberts bible said all his children were born in Bowden. Askirk is very close and there was a Hundalee close which could be Hunlie I suspect. The old writing is not clear on my documents but the spelling is sometimes anyone's guess as well. It also showed a Kirk at Ashkirk which probably is the Kirk in the documents. In Scotland I believe the name was spelled Thomson but in the US all but one son used Thompson. He was also a Robert and a Methodist preacher in WA. D.C. in the early 1800's.

Re: Thomson/Thompson in the Borders of Scotland.

Anne Burgess
 

That sounds like good evidence. Though I am puzzled because I cannot find the baptism of Euphemia Thom(p)son on FS or in the IGI. Which Associate Church was it, and do the baptisms list names of witnesses, the parents' residence, or Robert's occupation?

I would not recommend Ancestry for Scottish research, as they only have a small proportion of the available Scottish records, and much of what they have is in the form of transcriptions or indexes, rather than original documents. Some of their transcriptions are notorious for their .... er .... creative spelling of personal and place names.

FamilySearch, and especially the International Genealogical Index, can be very useful in providing pointers to the original information, but again it has mainly transcriptions and indexes, and (regrettably) has mixed the indexes from original sources with some very unreliable information from dubious sources. It also sometimes makes potentially misleading assumptions, for example that a man is aged 25 and a woman 21 at marriage, or that people were born in their parish of marriage, or in the same parish as their children.

The best source for Scottish records is www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk which has instant access to digital images of most of the surviving Scottish records. It's pay-per-view but modestly priced. Though as you have discovered you can go to any Family History Centre run by the LDS Church and arrange to rent the microfilms any of the records indexed on FS or in the IGI.


Re: Thomson/Thompson in the Borders of Scotland.

ROBERT F. RIDER
 

Thank you to all who have sent what help you could. I do appreciate any and all even if it isn't my line.Sometimes one can find a small tidbit even in a mostly incorrect tree. I do not have a tree on ancestry or any site as yet. I want to be sure of facts before I do that and at the moment I don't have Ancestry but plan to. I found the baptisms of Andrew and Euphemia through familysearch. I don't recall the exact title now, but it was records of the Associated Churches in Scotland. The Thompsons belonged to an associated Church at that time. I ordered in the film and went to my local LDS Church to view them. Those two were the only children I found. They were the youngest of the children so perhaps before them the parents were not in the associated church. A distant family member has the senior Robert Thomsons bible which lists Robert and Agnes births and marriage dates and the childrens names and dates of birth.After arriving in the U.S. I believe they may have settled in Virginia and Fairfax Co. I haven't proof of where exactly just tidbits of data here and there. I do know some were in Richland, Va. in the early 1800's. One tree stated Robert Thompson died in Edgar Co.,Illinois in 1810. That is interesting and some of his children did remove to there, but we have no proof Robert did or that he even immigrated. As to the marriage records shown for Robert and Agnes we have those. Only William Scot is shown as a witness for Robert. A guess is he is a friend or cousin,of Roberts. I have used America loosely in some posts as I am not sure of the dates of immigration. In the Georgetown area of WA. D.C. the sons we are sure immigrated were either saddlers or cabinet makers. I hope some of this makes sense, I hope to answer some of the questions that were asked and again to thank you all for the time you spent on this.

Hi Robert

 

I am sorry that the information that I sent was incorrect, I was only going by what you had posted and what I found on Ancestry. As I said there were 220 family trees I did not go through them all but I did looked at about 30 of them and they all had the same information.

If I answer a post it is up to them to check the source or corrected errors not me. It might be a load of junk, as this has be indicated to, or they may find something that breaks downs walls, then that has to be good no matter what source it come from.

 

 

 

The two web sites I sent were not family trees but Find a Grave site that had a biro on each person, but they both came from the one Family tree.

 

 

If you think Robert did married Agnes Elliot and Andrew parents then these records are from Scotland People showing the two marriage of Robert Thomson from Bowden and Agnes Elliott from Selkirk. You should get these two records to see if it shows their Parents to them both.

Of course. What I said was merely intended to forestall any objections to me using the acronym 'USA' for events that took place before the United States of America existed.


Re: Thomson/Thompson in the Borders of Scotland.

Anne Burgess
 
Edited

You should certainly get the two marriage records, but do not expect them to tell you the names of the couple's parents. In pre-1855 marriage records you do occasionally get the name of the bride's father, but the name of the groom's father is almost never included, and I have never seen one including the couple's mothers' names.

I did look at the two FindAGrave sites, and they do indeed contain lots of useful information about the people buried in those graves.

It's the postulated link between them and Andrew Thomson b 1765 in Scotland that I believe to be wrong.

S. If Robert came here it would be in the late 1700s. The other trees must be for a different Robert.I have not found a death or burial for Robert or Agnes in Scotland as of yet, hence my questions.

Re: Thomson/Thompson in the Borders of Scotland.

Anne Burgess
 

You are very wise not to believe that tree. Never trust anything you find online unless it's an image of an original document, and especially do not trust trees submitted to Ancestry and similar commercial web sites. Use them as a basis for further research, checking the source of every detail.

And do not fall into the error of assuming that the only vaguely matching candidate in the surviving records must be the right one, because many people's baptisms were never recorded or, if they were, the record has not survived. Unfortunately too many people do make this error, and publish trees containing it, and other people come along and copy it into their own tree, and before you know it there are hundreds of trees with wrong information.

Bowden is a parish in the County of Roxburgh (aka Roxburghshire). I searched the indexes at www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk for baptisms ot T*m*s*n children in the parish of Bowden from 1745 to 1785. There are no recorded baptisms of children named Andrew, Euphemia or Robert, and none with father named Robert. I also searched FamilySearch and the IGI (separately) for a baptism of Thompsons, father Robert, anywhere in Scotland between 1760 and 1770, and again found no reference to Andrew, Euphemia or Robert in Bowden (which does not surprise me because as far as Scottish baptism and marriage records are concerned, FS/IGI is an index to the original records at Scotland's People). The marriage of Robert Thomson and Agnes Elliot in 1750 is on SP, recorded in both Bowden and Selkirk, which means that the couple lived in different parishes so the banns had to be called in both. None of the indexes records any children of Robert Thomson and Agnes Elliot. There are 14 recorded baptisms of Robert T*m*s*ns in Scotland in 1722, none in Bowden and none with father Samuel.

So the first thing you need to do is clarify exactly what the microfilm you found is. Is it a film of a family bible (reliable) or taken from someone else's tree (unreliable)? Or one of the tiny number of surviving church records (for example episcopalian) that are not on Scotland's People (reliable)?

As for the alleged second marriage to Agnes Elliot in the USA, the most likely explanation for that is that someone has misread 1750 as 1759, and assumed that it must have been in the USA*. The original church records are of the proclamations of Banns, which are consistent with a marriage on 5 February 1750 - viewing the original document may clarify this, although it's quite common for the parish register not to give the date of the actual wedding ceremony. (I think, though I could easily be mistaken, that church rules forbid a second marriage to the same spouse, but things might have been different in the USA, even before independence).

*Yes, I know that the USA as such did not exist until after the wars of independence, but it sticks in my craw to use the term 'America' when I don't actually mean the entire continent all the way from Cape Columbia to Tierra de Fuego, or even the entire continent of North America.

As for the rest of the tree referred to, the politest thing I can say is that it looks pretty unconvincing to me.

The supposed grandfather and great-grandfather look to have been well established in the USA long before the marriage of Robert to Agnes Elliot. I am willing to bet that the earlier generations of it refer to an entirely different family. Norfolk is not by any stretch of the most fevered imagination in Greater London, and George Thomasson (1592-1666, though his gravestone says he was born in 1602) could not possibly have married Katherine Hutton (1612-1646) in 1657, when she had already been dead for 13 years. And how could Samuel Thompson (1691-1753) have married in Virginia in 1717 if he 'arrived' in Virginia 32 years later, in 1749? And if he died in 1753, the same year as his third wife, how did he manage to have two more children with his fourth wife who were, moreover, born in a different state? And why does the tree say that Samuel was born in Blair Manor, Ayrshire when his parents were clearly in the USA long before he was born, and the information linked to his father's grave listing says Samuel was born in King and Queen County, Virginia? (Where in Ayrshire is "Blair Manor"? Does it even exist? Most of the references to it online come from various versions of this same tree, and some suggest it is in the parish of Dalry. There is a Blair **House** in the parish of Dalry, but it is the seat of a *Blair* family not a T*m*s*n* family. )

With so many silly, obvious and easily corrected errors in it, the tree referred to is obviously not just unconvincing, but very unreliable. In fact I'll stop being pointlessly polite and say that as far as the forebears of your Andrew Thompson are concerned, I think it's a load of rubbish and I would strongly recommend ignoring it altogether.

Re: Thomson/Thompson in the Borders of Scotland.

Scott Thomson
 

Interesting. I have a fifth great-grandfather, Andrew Thompson, who probably came from Scotland and died in 1792; his wife was named Penelope. His son, also Andrew, was born in 1763-64 in Delaware and died in 1851 in Loudoun Co. Andrew II had a son Samuel, my great-great-great-grandfather; Samuel’s daughter, my great-great-grandmother, Mary Ellen, told a census enumerator that she, or perhaps her father, was Scots-Irish.

Hi Diane -- the Islay group is a "subgroup" of this one. If you login to the main site at https://scotland-genealogy.groups.io/g/Scots you can see all the subgroups on the menu on the left. Everyone in a subgroup is also a member of the main group, but the opposite is not true. 

If you write to Islay@Scotland-Genealogy.groups.io it will go only to members of Islay.
