Many thanks for researching that for me. I have the 1881 census record of the family but nothing further back. I believe that James Thomson (or James Thomas) Pryde (b. abt 1872 in Faskin, Old Monkland Parish, Lanarkshire) was the son of James Pryde and Christina Hamilton. It would be interesting to see their family make up. I still have yet to find the last name of John Thomson Pryde (b. 1898 Coatbridge)'s wife Margaret. I assumed they were married in Scotland but cannot find the marriage anywhere.
