A brother of Robert of Isle who died about 1652 and who married Margaret Brown. He is frequently mentioned in the Kirkcudbright Sheriff Court Records 1625-1675 first as Thomas of Torrs up to about 1662 then as Thomas of Gerrantoun from about 1665 to 1670 [Thomas of Gerrantoun is more likely the son of Robert Lidderdale]. During that period he was never called or referred to as Thomas Liddell in the Kirkcudbright Town books. He is mentioned as Thomas Liddell in Thomas William's notes but he puts a query after the Liddell and there seems nothing to warrant the second name.
