  • Notes 
    • Thomas went to Leith and was apprenticed to the soap business. He went into partnership in the soap-boiling business with the Paton family and the firm was listed as Jamieson and Patten, soap and candle makers, in the directory for 1778-1779. However most of the Patons had sold out to him and his brother-in-law, Andrew Paton in 1782. This partnership was dissolved by mutual consent in 1796.
