While browsing an antiquarian bookshop, I picked up a copy of The Scottish Antiquarian Tradition: Essays to mark the bicentenary of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland and its Museum, 1780-1980 by A. S. Bell.
It had a small tear to a page in about the middle of the book. When I opened the page, I immediately saw the name “William Thomson McCulloch” and the words “Keeper of the museum”. Needless to say I was intrigued enough to buy the book and started researching his line. I haven’t been able to connect him to any other branches of McCulloch research so far. The earliest ancestor I could confirm had origins of Port of Menteith in Perthshire - a long way from Wigtownshire!
I didn’t find much about him online but there was a lovely tribute to him in past proceedings.
