Where did the Scottish Thomson family come from? What is the Scottish coat of arms/family crest? When did the Thomson family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the history of the family name?

The many spelling variations in Medieval Scottish names result from the fact that scribes in that era spelled words according to sound. Translation too, was an undeveloped science, and many names were altered into complete obscurity. Over the years Thomson has been spelled Thomson, Tomson, Tamson, Thomsoun, M’Comie and others.

First found in Ayrshire where they were seated as Lords of Kylne Kylle from about the year 1150.

To escape the uncertainties and discrimination faced in Scotland, many decided to head out for North America. Once they arrived, many Scots fought with relish in the American War of Independence; some went north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. Many ancestors of these Scots have recovered their lost national heritage in the 20th century through clan organizations and Scottish historical societies. Among the settlers to North America were: Edward Thomson arrived on the “Mayflower” at Plymouth, Mass. in 1620; Andrew Thomson settled in Harbour Grace, Newfoundland, in 1801; Dugald Thomson settled in New York in 1739.
