I wonder if his mother married and changed his name?

What year was Jessie born and what were her parents' names?

Regards,
Annette

I think you do need to give us a little more information.

I have found an 8 year old Archie Macfarlane in Little Dunkeld Perhshire in 1911 .
Other names under the same Ref number are:
Grace 62 Hugh 65 Kate 20 - is that the family you have?

The 1901 Census for Clunie Perth shows:
Hugh 54, Grace 51 Ann 59 Catherine 10 Hugh 13 - no Jessie

There's a birth indexed for an Archibald McFarlane 1902 Clunie [Perth] - do you have that? that would give his mother's name [may not really be Jessie that's sometimes a shortened name] and maybe a father, plus an address or occupation.

Jessie is there in 1881 (and 1891) at Blair Atholl age 11 months with that family. There is a Jessie McFarlane born at Blair Atholl in 1880.
