Portrait Painter

Whilst researching family history, I came across two generations of portrait painters - early nineteenth century. Got quite excited as they were father and son, both had same name - Thomas Lawrence. Knew Thomas Lawrence was quite famous! Anyway, it seems it wasn't the famous one! Think portrait painters might have been the forerunners of photographers today - anyone any ideas? My Thomas Lawrence(s) lived in Edinburgh around 1800 - 1850.
