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.

Hi, thanks for the replies . All the information you have supplied is correct. Jessie was born in 1880 ( Blair Atholl ) . She gave birth to Archibald 1902. Bellfield. Dalguise. ( father not declared ) . She married a David Malcolm in 1920. Archibald appears to have stayed with his Grandparents after Jessies marriage. will keep searching graveyards. It looks like I am going to hang around for the 1921 cencus records in 3 yrs time. Apologies for delay in getting back on this. Have been out of wi-fi signal area. thanks to all.

Have you searched for a marriage for Archibald? There is one in Perth in 1923 to a Catherine Callum, but if you look throughout Scotland there are 44 between 1920 and 1940, so too many to check out, but if the 1923 is right, you can then look for the death of the wife, and see if she is recorded as married to or widow of Archibald. that will narrow his death down.

Have you thought about him moving to other parts of UK or even overseas, and checked passenger lists?

When searching I used wildcards for the surname M*CF*L*N*, that returned Macfarlane and Mcfarlane.
