Can't find a birth for a Mary with middle name Brackenbridge.

Can't find a marriage for a John to an Ellen Brackenbridge.

Can't find a birth for James Stedman Thomson.

The James Thomson & Mary Menzies marriage is not on SP.

With Mary born 1858 and son James born Peru in 1878 there is not much of a date range for the marriage.

No birth on SP for a James Thomson with middle name Richard in the index.

8x births for a James with parents James & Mary - no Stedman.

No marriage for a James Thomson to a Mary Stedman/Steadman.
