A lot of the entries in here
come from the book "Biographical Dictionary of Eminent Scotsmen"
originally edited by Robert Chambers and then the new edition along with
the supplemental volume says by the Rev. Thos. Thomson. It was published
by Blackie and Son of Glasgow, Edinburgh, and London in 1856. Would also
like to recognise the work of Jeanette Simpson who has worked very hard to
type all this in for us.
Should you be able to
provide a brief biography of a Significant Scot that we don't list we'd be
delighted to receive it for inclusion in here. Simply email it to
Select the Surname Letter
of the person you are looking for and if you don't find the person then do also
use our site search engine at the top of the page.
