  • ID: I1
  • Name: Thomas Doig
  • Surname: Doig
  • Given Name: Thomas
  • Sex: M
  • Birth: ABT 1752 in Of Forfar, Angus, Scotland
  • Death: 1811 in Forfar, Angus, Scotland
  • _UID: D481AD567FBE504781274AD96511862A1D6F
  • Note:
    [He may be the Thomas christened 30 Jan 1745 at Aberlemno, son of Andrew Doig, burgess of Brechin, and May Anderson; or born in Easter Balloch and christened 23 Feb 1749 in Kirriemuir, son of Robert Doig; or christened 5 Apr 1750 in Liff, son of James Doig; or christened 12 Aug 1753 in Dundee, son of James Doeig and Ann Alloa. It has also been suggested that he was the son of brewer in Glamis James Doig (1723-1778), but he is not mentioned in James' will.]

    Thomas was a workman in Forfar Burgh and later a brewer.

    [It is curious that Thomas and Margaret with 10 offspring had no children named after them. It is possible that Thomas had been previously married and already used these names. The late marriage to Elizabeth Milne is based on approx. age, location, occupation, timing, and Elizabeth' first husband Alexander Smith may have been a brother to Thomas' first wife Margaret Smith.]
